Open Grade Round 3 Roundup

Updated: May 5, 2022

Saturday 30th April & Sunday 1st May

Hockey returned in Wellington this weekend after a short break for the Easter and ANZAC holidays. Teams took to the turf once again to pick up where they left off in our 2022 Open Grade Competition.

Find below a summary of the action from our Premier grades games over the weekend.

Premier 1 Men

Only eight goals were scored in the three men’s games played on Cello NHS 1 with Dalefield scoring five of them in a big win. They dominated their game against Tawa Titans, but found their opponent’s defence hard to crack, before Dylan Price scored in the final quarter to notch a second bonus point victory. Marcus Ambrose scored his first hat-trick for the Wairarapa-based side, who were unable to convert any of their eight penalty corner opportunities.

Indians featured in yet another tight game, this time just getting the better of a valiant Victoria, while Harbour City achieved their first win of the season, over Northern United in the tightest of contests.

Brigette Mossman scored four times for Dalefield against Toa in the afternoon game on McDonald’s Newtown NHS 2, putting her team at the top of the standings after three rounds. Toa defended strongly, being down just 4-1 at three-quarter time, before Dalefield doubled their score against a tiring defence in the final stanza.

Northern United came back from a four-week layoff to comfortably see off winless Harbour City in the late game. Victoria and Karori each grabbed a valuable point in their scoreless draw with Vic goalie Isla Jones repulsing several dangerous-looking Karori raids.
