The Panthers have claimed victory in the first round of the AIHA Cup Series, a monthly tournament held during the regular Junior season.
The Panthers beat the Seawolves 5-1 on May 29th to claim the Pure NZ Cup for the first game of a sure to be exciting series.
The new format for the 2017 season will see Junior teams compete against one another on a monthly basis, with the winning team on the night holding the Cup (and bragging rights!) for the following month.
