Auckland Claims 1-5 Year Trophies
30 May 2014
The Auckland 1-5 Year Sides have both taken out the Regional 1-5 Year Tournaments in Maungatoroto last Sunday.
Taking top spot from last Octobers rounds into the day the Women's side amassed another fourteen points for the day and finished with 32 points for the two days play. North Harbour was second in the Women's event with 19 points.
In the Men's event 12 points were carried forward from October by Auckland but there was a great struggle on Sunday to retain their top placing. Winning only one game of the first round put Auckland on the back foot, and it was not until the final round that Auckland claimed three of the four games to finally clinch the trophy from a determined Northland challenge finishing on 22 points ahead of Northland on 21 points.
With North Harbour Men finishing on 20 points for the two days play it was a very closely fought battle with the lead changing several times throughout the day as the rounds progressed.
Congratulations to both sides and a special thanks to Northland for running the event.
Women: Auckland 32 points; North Harbour 19 pts; Northland 13 pts; Far North 8 pts (Did not play last day)
Men: Auckland 22 points; Northland 21 pts; North Harbour 20 pts; Far North 9 pts (Did not play last day)
