Saturday May 28th & Sunday May 29th

Another round of our Cello Open Grade Premier Competition is in the books with a slate of P1 Games hosted at Wellingtons National Hockey Stadium over the weekend. Teams have begun to hit their stride with some strong performances and fantastic games from the likes of Hutt United, Dalefield, Northern United and Harbour City.

Check out the full slate of results from Round 7 are available now via PlayHQ.

Premier 1 Men

Dalefield finished round one with a seven-point lead in the competition after beating a tenacious Victoria in the main game on Cello NHS 1. That made it six wins out of six for the Wairarapa-based side, who have a goal differential of 28. Hutt United moved into second-equal place after crushing Northern United in the early game. They opened the scoring early and averaged a goal every five minutes, with Jack Rider knocking in five of them. Indians share the second spot after their bye with four points back to Harbour City, who gained their third win but could not achieve a bonus point against Tawa Titans under lights.

Premier 1 Women

Hutt United made the most of having captain Ani Haumaha in their ranks for the final time with a last gasp win over Northern United in the third game. The recalled Black Sticks defender opened the scoring in the first quarter from a penalty corner, then rallied her side who found themselves a goal down going into the final stanza. Minna Reid drew her side level before Grace Seeley secured the epic win with just two seconds showing on the by now brightly glowing clock. At the end of round one, both sides are four clear of Dalefield who had earlier grabbed a point after a fierce two-goal tussle with Victoria. Harbour City are a further four adrift after their third win in a row, comfortably beating fifth-placed Toa.
