Premier 1 Women

Northern United announced their championship credentials with a most impressive victory over Dalefield at Clareville. Possession was evenly split, but Northern had too much precision and pace at vital times for the 2021 champions. They scored in each quarter, with two of their goals coming from 77-cap Black Stick Amy Robinson. Hutt United made light of

their four-week layoff beating Karori 7-1 in the early game on Cello NHS 1. Minna Reid and Laura Jurgeleit both scored doubles as the Hutt Valley side returned to the top of the table. Toa had a pleasing win over Victoria in the second game on Cello NHS 1, and moved up to fourth on the competition ladder.

Northern’s goal was effected by former Wellington High School First XI captain Lee Stanton-Barnett.
