North Harbour too good for Auckland
08 Oct 2013
North Harbour won the inaugural "Battle of the Bridge" over the weekend defeating Auckland in both the Open and Development competitions.
The Open and Development Women were the shining lights for Auckland on a difficult day on the Birkenhead greens. The Open Women won three of six games and held a superior points differential to North Harbour. The Development Women fared even better and after a slow start recorded three wins, one draw and just two losses to contribute seven points to the Development team score.
The Auckland Open Men battled hard all day but were unable to record a win against a strong North Harbour side. It was a similar story for the Development Men who came out on the right side of the ledger in just one of the six matches played.
