Congrats to our Premier Men who secured 3rd place in the Premier 5's Tournament! This was an exciting weekend of hockey with teams from Auckland and Tauranga competing.
Our Premier Women also had a great weekend, they were very unlucky only dropping one game and finishing top of their pool in a tie and unfortunately ended up missing out on the finals due to goal difference.
Sadly both competitions were taken out by Auckland teams but both finals were tight contests with Te Awamutu Women going down 2-0 and Collegian Men being pipped in the last few minutes after being a couple of goals up.
Awesome weekend of hockey and fun, we had a great crew for the weekend and set up a good camp with plenty of water, ice and sunscreen to combat the heat!
For anyone who hasn't seen 5's played before it's pretty cool, you play off the boards and you can score from anywhere. It was amazing to see goals being scored from well behind half way as demonstrated by a few of our own players! Next weekend is another 5's tournament which is open to all levels of players, if anyone is interested in competing flick us a message.
