First Weekend Results

Mar
14

The opening weekend of hockey has been and gone, we managed to miss most of the rain ! Here are our teams results -

Storage King Premier Men went down 3 nil to Collegians.
Be Active Fitness Premier Women ended up with a 2-2 draw, although they had the majority of the possession and territory they weren't able to get the win, conceding a goal in the last minute.

Reserve A Women had a convincing 2-0 win over New World Old Girls. The ladies finally converted with 10 minutes to go after dominating for the whole match.
Reserve B Women played very well against Fraser Tech, after conceding early they fought back to be winning 3-2 with minutes to go but Tech snuck another in right before the final whistle.
Reserve A Men went down 2-1 in a close game which was marred by a few colourful cards

Reserve B Men also went down in a close battle with UMS on Sunday night, the men played with some great structure which is looking positive for the coming weeks.
Reserve Social Women were out of luck this week with Suburbs defaulting due to not enough players :(

Reserve Three Men beat Fraser Tech 3-1!

Premier 5's Tournament

Feb
27

Congrats to our Premier Men who secured 3rd place in the Premier 5's Tournament! This was an exciting weekend of hockey with teams from Auckland and Tauranga competing.

Our Premier Women also had a great weekend, they were very unlucky only dropping one game and finishing top of their pool in a tie and unfortunately ended up missing out on the finals due to goal difference.

Sadly both competitions were taken out by Auckland teams but both finals were tight contests with Te Awamutu Women going down 2-0 and Collegian Men being pipped in the last few minutes after being a couple of goals up.

Awesome weekend of hockey and fun, we had a great crew for the weekend and set up a good camp with plenty of water, ice and sunscreen to combat the heat!

For anyone who hasn't seen 5's played before it's pretty cool, you play off the boards and you can score from anywhere. It was amazing to see goals being scored from well behind half way as demonstrated by a few of our own players! Next weekend is another 5's tournament which is open to all levels of players, if anyone is interested in competing flick us a message.
