Mendoza hosted the most importanttournament of national field hockey. The Major Teams Tournament summoned the best teams in the country in both ladies and gentlemen. Like everything about the best of this discipline, the stage was the Ciudad de Godoy Cruz stadium, which stood up to the circumstances.

The girls had a regular and seamless path to the Definitory party. They reaped three wins, a draw in the semifinal (with win by Australian penalties) and the blunt victory in the final against Cordoba, by 3 to 0. Among the players of the home team were the former Leonas Silvina D’Elía and Macarena Rodríguez, as well as the currently called to the national team, Priscila Jardel and Marina Scandura.

The boys had it more complicated. In the final they faced Buenos Aires and tied 1 to 1, after the goal of Juan Catán (Los Leones player) for Buenos Aires and the subsequent equality of Leandro Ojeda. Thus, the match went to the definition by shoot out, where Mendoza won by 5 to 4, with the goalkeeper Emiliano Bosso as figure.

In this way, the women’s team, led by José González, and the men’s team, led by Gabriel Gómez, confirmed the good moment of hockey on Mendoza lawn. Good time that has its arguments in the National League of Clubs, where the local players are always protagonists, or in the number of players who play in Buenos Aires or abroad and who, in many cases, have been called for the national teams.
