Result of last night's Fronton Mexico Star Match

Ekhi made delirious the Frontón Mexico

With the score 8-6, Ekhi hits backwards in box 12 of Frontón Mexico and when everyone expected him to "pull", he threw a "Guillermina" that made me stand up. Not all the public because maybe they did not know what it was, but I repeat, it made me applaud as I had not done for a long time.

The "Guillermina", for all those who do not know, is a "shot" backhand to two walls. It was great and after that we could have all gone from the pediment; The night had already been worth it.

We wanted to emphasize that play, which unfortunately is practically in danger of extinction and that yesterday Ekhi dared to realize it. Hopefully in this new season of jai-alai Mexico, there will be more "Ekhis" who dare, try it and like that "Guillermina", let's soon see other types of plays that are spectacular and are leaving in oblivion. We've had 7 games this season and my eyes still do not see a "rasa al width". What's happening to us?

The star game ended "street" 30-20 in favor of the reds Olharán and Ekhi over the Olha and Portet blues.

We were expecting more showy plays from Olharán a couple of days ago gave a great game. Ekhi, in addition to showing off in the aforementioned, had another two or three plays of excellent manufacture. Olha made shots of "costadillo" that took the applause of the respectable and Portet, who has good postures and a setback that can make him look on the east pediment, had flashes of good jai-alai.

FOR THIS THURSDAY

In the first match will be measured Juan Leon and Osorno against Ortega and Perez. We will have to see the debut of both Osorno and Perez and check whether Ortega repeats the good performance of his debut and Juan Leon the shots he achieved in his previous commitment.

For the stellar, luxury, no doubt, we will be watching Laduche and Lopez playing before Eguiguren and Irastorza. Again a confrontation between the two best backers of the picture and possibly the world. We hope to see Eguiguren with the joyful, varied and forceful game that has come to me not only in Mexico, but in frontons of La Florida. And Laduche will have to see him "dressing" with three of the best pelotaris in the world.

For the match that closes feature, we will see Aaron and Hirigoyenberry against Sierra and Ituarte.

Tomorrow we will be broadcasting the star party. Do not miss it!

It was the star party of the night, Olharán and Ekhi red VS Olha and Portet blue, having won reds.
