Manawatu Vets 1 team hosted a round of Veterans Division 2 ties at the Feilding Civic Centre on 18th May. Both Masters teams were in action on 25th May, with Masters 1 in Wellington and Masters 2 in Waitakere.
Beat Taranaki 1 9-0 & Beat Hutt Valley 6-3
Manager Claire James:
“Despite a really sick Dave, rubbish weather and Michele lying on a beach somewhere, the Vets 1 team made a solid start to the season with wins over both Taranaki 1 and Hutt Valley. Greg was welcomed into the team, slotting in seamlessly and achieving good results. Overall everyone played well and the nutritional nourishment supplied by the team was well received by our visitors.“
Lost to Waitakere 3 10-2 & Beat Hutt Valley 1 8-4
Manager Wayne Young:
“Masters 1 played Waitakere 3 and Hutt Valley 1 in Division 2 on the weekend. The team lost to Waitakere 10-2, with a number of tight games that didn’t go our way in the end. However, we registered an 8-4 win against Hutt Valley. It was a good team effort, including a win from Malcolm, our newest team member who had never played at this level before.”
Beat Auckland 6 8-4 & Lost to Auckland 5 8-4
Well done to the team for picking up their first win of the season. Lots of new faces in the Masters 2 team, who have settled in well and collecting their first victories. A promising start to the season.
