Yesterday the CAB 1 Sports Region Tournament was formally inaugurated, jointly organized by the basketball associations of San Nicolás, Rosario and Pergamino, and endorsed by the Argentine Confederation. The competition – which has 35 clubs from the north of the province of Buenos Aires and the south of Santa Fe, valid for both the male and female branches, in the First Division and Lower – had its opening day at the “Fortunato Bonelli” stadium. from Club Belgrano, in our city. Two games were played there. In the first round, for the women’s senior category contest, Regatas defeated Talleres de Villa Gobernador Gálvez 61 to 46, a rival that had beaten it this season in the three previous matches (two for Rosarina and one for the Federal). Those led by Jorge Acosta unblocked an even game from the third quarter, thanks to their aim in the long shots, especially through the conversions of Julieta Molina (he made seven triples and totaled 23 goals), counting at the same time with the leadership scored by Andrea Rébola. After a brief presentation of the championship with an exchange of presents by the authorities (Martín Vercelli and Eduardo Pérez by ABSN, Marcelo Turcato by Rosarina and Miguel Chami, vice president of the CAB) and that the tango singer Javier Noceda will sing the stanzas of the Argentine national anthem, they faced each other for the First of the Somisa and Temperley men from Rosario, with the latter triumphing by 70 to 60. In the midst of a balanced, very physical and frictionless procedure, the Rosario residents made the difference in closure. When the nicoleños lost by averaging the last quarter (57-58), a 12-0 run allowed Temperley, who finished better, to get away from a rival in training who could not deploy a good basketball last night.
