Open Grade Round 14 Roundup


Premier 1 Men

Dalefield finished the preliminary round with a stuttering win over Victoria at Clareville. Down 0-1, then 1-2 at half-time, three second-half goals, including a penalty stroke converted by captain Rowan Yeo, saw the top qualifiers finish seven points clear. Hutt United wrapped up the second spot with a comfortable victory over Northern United and they will meet fierce rivals Dalefield at Clareville on Saturday. The two teams each won a game in their meetings during the season with the winner this time going straight into the final on 20 August. The loser will play the winner of the game between Indians, who finished third after having a bye on Saturday, and 2021 champions Harbour City, who did better in the wet conditions to overcome Tawa Titans. In the lower half of the competition, Tawa Titans will meet Victoria, with the winner going straight into the playoff for fifth, and the loser playing Northern United the following week.

Premier 1 Women

Scoring three goals in the first quarter, then two more later, Dalefield did all they could to make the top two with a point win over Victoria in the early game at Clareville. However, Hutt United then beat Northern United for the second time and went ahead of Dalefield to the top of the table. Conditions were extremely wet for this game on McDonald’s Newtown NHS 2 and it is hoped the turf will be dryer when these two teams meet again in the first playoff game on Saturday, with the winner to go straight into the final. The loser will play off against the winner of the sudden death game between Dalefield and Harbour City. The late game scheduled between Harbour City and Toa was abandoned as conditions made the turf unplayable. The result makes no difference to the teams’ standings and Toa will play Karori on Saturday, with the winner going into the playoff for fifth and sixth, and the loser meeting Victoria in an important clash to decide the seventh place.
