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.
