Great Start to the Season for the Auckland U14’s

By | | No Comments

The Auckland U14’s Representative team hosted defending champions Canterbury over the weekend of July 8th and 9th and came away with two convincing victories over their visiting counterparts. 

Saturday’s game one was a clean sweep across all three periods with Auckland totalling up a massive 72 shots on goal and taking a 9-0 victory in the process. The team played well together to bring home a clean victory, with form that looks promising for the rest of the season.

Sunday’s game two was just as one sided with Auckland dominating from start to finish, scoring a goal in the first 90 seconds of period one and adding 8 more to the score sheet before the period ended. The second and third periods were played well by the entire team, with another 4 goals scored in each respectively, and allowing only two goals in by the opposition. At the sound of the final buzzer, the score was 17-2 in favour of Auckland.

Panthers’ Successfully Defend Pure NZ Cup

By | | No Comments

The Panthers successfully defended the Pure NZ Cup in their second match up against the Seawolves, claiming a 5-0 victory.

The first period was fraught with penalties, with the Seawolves giving up 5 power plays to the Panthers,  yet still managing a great defensive effort to allow no goals with one man in the box each time.  However, in between power plays, the Panthers managed to sneak in a goal finishing the first period with a 1-0 lead.

The second period also featured a number of penalties, this time with the Panthers committing 3 offences for tripping and boarding, however the Seawolves were unable to capitalise on the power plays. Mid way through the period, the Panthers scored their second goal to bring the score 2-0 in their favour at the end of the period. 

The third period a more friendly affair with no more penalties, however the Panthers continued their attack scoring a further 3 goals to end the game 5-0.

Auckland U17s Defeat Canterbury

By | | No Comments

The Auckland Under 17 Representative Team travelled to Christchurch over the weekend for their third away game in a row, for what promised to be a tough weekend.

Saturday’s game one against Canterbury was hard fought, with both teams finishing period one 0-0. Within the first 90 seconds of the second period, Auckland scored to take the lead 1-0, however this was quickly equalised by Canterbury, who then went on to score a further two goals in the period, bringing the game to 3-1. Auckland managed to score a great goal on power play to bring it back to a one goal game just as the teams hit the locker room for the final period, bringing the score 3-2 to Canterbury.

The third period was just as intense with Canterbury holding a 5-4 lead with 3 minutes to the final buzzer, until an interference call against Canterbury gave Auckland a penalty shot. Auckland converted this penalty to a goal, taking the game to overtime, where just 3 minutes in, Auckland scored the game winning goal.

Sunday’s game two was also a tough one, although the score line suggested otherwise with Auckland finishing the second period up 7-0. Canterbury attempted somewhat of a comeback in period 3, scoring 4 unanswered goals to bring the game to 7-4 in Auckland’s favour. However, Auckland’s dominance in periods one and two were too much, with the final buzzer sounding and awarding Auckland the 7-4 win.
