The fourth edition of the Copa Novillitos a tournament for youngsters- went ahead on Saturday, May 5th at the La Aguada club, in Open Door, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.
There were 12 teams taking part, divided into two divisions: Menores (9 to 11 years old) and Mayores (12 to 13).
In the Menores division, La Natividad claimed the title by defeating Las Betulas 3-2 in the deciding match. Felipe Dabas, of the La Natividad team, was named MVP. Matías Uranga, of Las Betulas, received the Fair Play award, and Thiago Suárez, part of the Los Cocos teams line-up, was the revelation.
In the Mayores division, Las Betulas won the title by defeating Black Watch 4-3. Tomás Pasman was named MVP, while Hilario Figueras, of the runner-up team, received the Fair Play award. Francisco Penna, of the Las Betulas team, was the revelation.
One of the main incentives for the kids was the refereeing: in the Menores final, Miguel Novillo Astrada was the umpire, and in the Mayores final, Eduardo Novillo Astrada had that responsibility in his hands.
