Minadeo replaced as Leonas coach

By Eric Weil / For The Herald

In spite of what the new committee of the Argentina Hockey Cofederation (CAH) said previously — that they would make no changes to the coaching staff of the national teams — Gabriel Minadeo has been suddenly replaced as coach of the national women’s team. Agustín Corradi, who took the national women’s under-21 team to their second world championship, has been appointed. However, Minadeo had already presented his plans for the Leonas the season and so had another worthy candidate, Marcelo Garraffo.

The move is a strange turnaround by the CAH as it is either due to favouritism or this stupid notion that a coach (who failed to win last year’s Olympics), whatever his qualities, should be replaced by somebody who has won something.


Santa Barbara beat Hurling 5-4 in a hard-fought match to go joint top at the top of the table after seven rounds. They are both a point ahead of GEBA and Ciudad de Buenos Aires A and this weekend the top four meet — Hurling will host Ciudad A and Santa Barbara are at home to GEBA.
