14th South American Championship, Buenos Aires, 2017

The 14th South American Championship (SAC) took place in various locations across Buenos Aires from Fri, 13th to Mon, 16th October, 2017. The hosts, Argentina, were worthy champions, winning all their group games and comfortably defeating reigning champions, Chile, in the final.

Peru made a disastrous start on the morning of Day 1 against Uruguay, but fought back well to be in with a chance of reaching the final going into the last game on Day 4. Sadly, a close defeat in a high-scoring game against Chile meant this wasn’t to be, and they finished the tournament in 5th place, with a creditable Won 3 – Lost 3 record.

Moreover, both the Coca Cup and the Amistad Cup remained in Peruvian hands for another year, after good wins over Colombia on Day 1 and over Brazil on Day 3.
