Open Grade Round 10 Roundup

Saturday and Sunday the 2nd & 3rd July 2022

Premier 1 Men

Tawa Titans bore the brunt of Dane Lett’s brief availability for Dalefield as the Birmingham-bound Black Sticks defender powered in no fewer than five penalty corner thunderbolts against them at Clareville on Saturday. There were also hat-tricks to veteran Rowan Yeo and livewire Graeme Murrell as Dalefield went out to an eleven point lead in the competition with their fourth bonus point win. Harbour City earned their first bonus point in their big victory over Northern United on Cello NHS 1, with captain Josh Symonds scoring three goals, two from penalty corners. In reply, Northern captain Haydon Smith recorded just his side’s second goal of the season. In the early game on Cello NHS 1 Indians took advantage of Hutt United’s bye to move into outright second place after beating Victoria in what was a competitive encounter throughout.

Dalefield gained a second bonus point win against Toa at Clareville with regular scorers Felicity Reidy and Abby Crawley both netting twice. Coming off their bye and with no games last week Northern United were still able to beat Harbour City for the second time this season, but the deficit was halved as Estelle Macadre’s successful penalty stroke proved crucial. After the first encounter between Victoria and Karori produced no goals, the team from the west knocked in a couple on Saturday to gain valuable competition points and moved them within striking distance of fourth placed Harbour City.
