Weekend Games

Our Juniors are on School Holidays which mean that they have a break from hockey for a few weeks.

Our Seniors enter the second round of the competition this weekend and our Woman's P3 and P3.2 teams are facing each other this week but due to the P3.2 team availability issues our top team have agreed to play on NEXT Wednesday the 18th at 6.45 pm. This also means we have NO teams playing hockey on Saturday as our R2 woman are playing Sunday this weekend.

For the rest of our Seniors weekends schedules keep scrolling down.

 

Senior Prize-Giving

We will be sending out a 'save the date' event from our Facebook page for our Prize-giving on the 29th September. Please make sure you let us know if you are attending so we can start our planning for a fun filled evening. More details to come as we get closer to the date.

Junior Club Game Results

7 July 2018

Here are the results of our Junior Club games from the weekend:

 

Kwik Sticks Year 7 & 8 P1 Boys

Upper Hutt vs Kapiti

Result: Lost 2-3. The P1 year 7/8 boys had a fantastic game against Kapiti this week. The teams were evenly matched and it was an exciting game to watch! Strong passing and ball carriage lead to goals scored by Samuel Forbes and Rhône Haines. Fantastic defensive play was evident, with stand-out defensive strategy demonstrated by Jared Woolcott. The boys’ rapidly developing skill was obvious in this game and we are very proud of their consistently positive attitude. They all reported it was a fun game to play even though the final score was 3/2 to Kapiti.  

 

Kiwi Sticks Year 5 & 6 Premier

Upper Hutt vs Pauatahnui Falcons

Result: Void Match.

 

Hutt Kiwi Sticks 5 & 6 Development 

Upper Hutt Black Magic vs Hutt United Hurricanes

Result: Drew 1-1. Black Magic had a very close game on Saturday against the competitive Hutt Hurricanes. The score was 1 -1. Hutt scored first but then Kyle K scored a fantastic goal with a reverse stick and the scores were locked and they stayed that way for the rest of the game. Black Magic had two opportunities to score however we couldn't quite get the ball in the goal no matter how hard we tried. Ryan G-D played with awesome attacking skills and seemed to be everywhere throughout the whole game, when he was playing defence he hustled for the ball and past it forward to his mid players perfectly. The rain didn't dampen the team’s spirit and Black Magic were unlucky not to win against a very good and competitive team.

 

Upper Hutt Silverstix vs Hutt United Tornadoes

Lost: Drew 5-5. Silverstix met Hutt United Tornadoes for the second time, playing in pretty tough conditions with rain and wind. Tornadoes took an early lead, helped out by one of Silverstix' players who showed great sportsmanship and stepped in when the Tornadoes were short a player to start, then scored two goals within the first 5 minutes! Silverstix had to battle to get through Tornadoes' tight defense and managed to edge ahead in the second half, but Tornadoes fought back and at full time the score was even - 5-5. Player of the day went to Layton.

 

Hutt Mini Sticks 3 & 4 Development 

Upper Hutt Super Sticks vs Hutt United Blasters

Result: Won 6-5. UH Super Sticks won 6-5 again Hutt United Blasters. It was a really close game, in blustery conditions. Our team played really well together with some great passing and work. Our goals were scored by Liam, Tova and Fletcher. It was a real team effort but player of the day went to Ruby as she got really stuck in and did some great blocks and passes. 

 

Upper Hutt Goldstix vs Hutt United Bullets

Result: Lost 2-6. It was another early Saturday morning, this time no ice but lots of rain and wind to battle through. The other team were short when we started so one of our kids jumped over to help them out until there last player turned up. About 10 mintues in, our player came back to us :) It was a great game, the kids played their little hearts out. Calling for the ball, looking into space so they could pass it to someone. We lost 6-2 but they never gave up! Played Hutt United Bullets, we lost 6-2, POD Sam G

Upper Hutt Mighty Maroons vs Wainuiomata Dynamites

Result: Lost 3-5. The Mighty Maroons played Wainuiomata today. We were lucky to have all our team members and Auroras sister, Yasmin, to umpire. Wainui won the ball and the game started. The Mighty Maroons played a defensive gave with Wainui strong on attack. 3 unanswer goals from Wanui and it was almost  half time. The Mighty Maroons fought hard and scored their 1st goal of the game. At halftime we talked about keeping our sticks down and running to the ball. The second half was a more even game with a disallowed goal for the Maroons followed by a two goals from Wainui and one from the Maroons. Final score was 5-3 to Wainui. POD was Deacon 

  


Senior Club Game Results

Game 8- Competition Round 1, 7/8 July 2018

Massive shout out to our R1 Men who had an even better result this weekend - well done lads, hard work paying off! Our R2 Woman unfortunately didn't get to play due to Kapiti defaulting which was a bit disappointing but also a blessing in disguise due to the wonderfully wet weather we had this weekend. I'm sure our players would agree, that aspect wasn't much fun. Have a look at the Memorable Mentions and results for all our senior teams below: 

Results 78 july 18

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: P2 Warriors: draw 3-3 against Northern. Gutsy effort from the lads today in torrential 110+km winds and rain pouring down all game. Was a tough game with passing needing to be short or over the top. Some huge efforts from everyone and a big result for the team. Memorable mention has to go to Vaughan though who at 3-3 makes a huge stop off a stroke nonetheless. 

 

P3 Woman:  A much better game against Hutt United than when we played them last time.  Some great passing this week and hunger in the goal circle.  MM goes to Eleanor who returned for the first time since breaking her collarbone at the start of the season.

 

P3.2 Woman:  With both our head honchoes away, I have been delegated to write up the Memorable Mention for this week. I have a few MM for this week. Though playing and trying to remember all the great things that went on can be tricky but fortunately there is one particular moment that really isn't hard to remember, and that was Kezza's goal...for the opposition! It was a great goal, nice deflect into the top of the goal and at least we got one goal this game (hehe). But our real Memorable Mentions go to the supporters who stuck it out through the torrential rain and supported us - it was honestly awesome to you all there, to our fill in coach Nicky (coaches the top woman's team) and to our wonderful fill in goalies Catherine Catherine Gillatt who did an amazing job and fantastic saves. Thank you everyone :) 


R1 Men: We finally won a game! What a game it was. MM goes to Blair for missing an open goal post shot - doh! But more importantly everyone really stepped up and played as a team and we got the win we have been hunting.

 

R2 Woman:  We got defaulted to this week - stay tuned for next week.

 

R3 Men:  Memorable moment: Being charged by the goalie during a penalty stroke! Thankfully the goal counted so we didn’t have to take it again. Bizarre! Also, a well done to the defensive team (Aaron, Matt, Paul, Harrison and Robert) who kept Karori scoreless.

Junior Club Game Results

30 June 2018

Here are the results of our Junior Club games from the weekend:

 

Kwik Sticks Year 7 & 8 P1 Boys

Upper Hutt vs Tawa

Result: Drew 2-2. The P1 year 7/8 boys played Tawa again this week and their opponents were keen to prove themselves after last week's 2/0 win to Upper Hutt. Both teams played strong positions which made it an exciting game to watch. Tawa scored two goals in the first half and coordinated play in the circle in the second half led to Upper Hutt goals scored by Samuel F and Jacob A. The final result was a two all draw, which the Upper Hutt boys were extremely satisfied with!

 

Kiwi Sticks Year 5 & 6 Premier

Upper Hutt vs Karori Ackerley

Result: Lost 1-10.

 

Hutt Kiwi Sticks 5 & 6 Development 

Upper Hutt Black Magic vs Hutt United Tornadoes

Result: Won 7-2. Black Magic had a wonderful game against Hutt United Tornadoes with a 7-2 win. We all enjoyed the warmer start and the kids seemed to of had more energy this week. Again we focused on passing the ball through the field and everybody getting involved. This again seemed to of worked because Lucas C/O, Jamie G , Lucas C, Izzy S/L and Spencer scoring a goal each and Aiden C scoring 2 goals. We could not decide one POD so we gave out 3. Lucas C/O, Jamie G and
Spencer S for awesomeness through out the game. This team has had a great season so far and we are looking forward continuing our fantastic run of form.

 

Upper Hutt  Silverstix vs Hutt United Hurricanes

Lost: Won 5-0. Silverstix played Hutt United Hurricanes. It was an intense game, and again Silverstix had to get creative with their plays to edge past the Hutt team's defense, which was very strong. Silverstix showed great determination and teamwork to win the game 5-0. Coach Cameron awarded player of the day to Alex.

Hutt Mini Sticks 3 & 4 Development 

Upper Hutt Super Sticks vs Hutt United Pirates

Result: Lost 4-8. Though the UH Super Sticks lost to the Pirates - Fletcher got 2 goals and Liam got 2 goals. By the sounds of it, it was a tough game but the team did well!

 

Upper Hutt Goldstix vs Hutt United Sliders

Result: Won 3-2. Another chilly start to our Saturday morning but at least the turf wasn't white 😊 The other team were meant to be down 1 player so we would do rolling subs with ours to make it fair but it turned out that they were short 2. 1 of our kids very kindly  offered to play for the other team which was great so we all could play. Was a fantastic game, kids all ran around like loonies and had heaps of fun. They are all getting more involved now which i love seeing. It was a close game, we won 3-2 against Hutt United Sliders, POD Jamie H

Upper Hutt Mighty Maroons vs Hutt United Bullets

Result: Lost 4-6. Another cold 8am start at Fraser Park for the Mighty Maroons this weekend.  We started our warm up by practicing some passing drills to help us score goals.  We were sort of players and were thankful Tova was able to help us out.  The game started and our warm up passing worked a treat.  The ball was taking up the sideline passed into the goal circle to the waiting playing resulting in the 1st goal of the game.  The Hutt United team fought hard but the back were able to stop the ball passing it out wide.  There was a lot of strong passing between both teams both fighting to control the ball.  The Mighty Maroons scored another goal which Hutt United replied to with 2 goals before half time.  Our halftime talk reminded the Maroons they could dribble the ball and must stop the ball before passing for better ball control.  The Maroons were feeling really tired with no subs they played on.  Hutt United were gifted 2 goals by the Maroons in the second half and the score was 4 all.  There was 2 minutes to go and Hutt United ran away with the ball scoring 2 goals before the final whistle.  I am super proud of the Mighty Maroons for never giving up.  Even though they were tired in the 2nd half and the sun was in their eyes, they tried their hardest for the full 40 minutes.  The final score was 6-4.  Player of the Day was Tova, who came to Fraser to help us out (her team was playing at Maidstone) and played and amazing game.

  


Senior Club Game Results

Game 7- Competition Round 1, 30 June /01 July 2018

Our Senior teams had a bit of a tough weekend this weekend but the R1 Men were pretty stoked with their result. Have a look at the Memorable Mentions and results for all our senior teams below: 

results 30 june 01 july

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: P2 Warriors lost 3-1 to Tawa 1. In wet dreary, windy Wellington conditions the boys were a bit slow off the mark in the first half. Big turn around in the second half and stringing more passes together and holding the ball for longer periods of time saw them close the gap. A few errors cost us goals and in the end, we just couldn't claw them back. Memorable Mention goes to all 13 of the guys who turned up and got absolutely drenched but played their guts out nonetheless.

 

P3 Woman:  We lost 4-0. It was first place vs second place on the table this weekend.  Not the result we wanted but lots of learnings came out of the game.  MM goes to Nic this week who subbed on during the first half and came running back to the dugout 20 secs later as she had picked up the wrong stick.

 

P3.2 Woman:  The P3.2 women played at home this week against Kapiti. We changed it up a bit this week and it definitely looks very promising, we didn't come away with the win but it was a hard fought game with defenders keeping us in reach throughout the match. Unfortunately our goalie Lisa is going on holiday for 3 weeks but we wish her a great trip and we are excited about Catherine Catherine Gillatt filling in for us and she is ecstatic about coming to training each week. NOT!!
 

R1 Men: Drew 3-3 and it is very nice to not say lost for a change! MM goes to Casey who had to deal with an "interesting" opponent - things got a bit argy-bargy but Casey handled it well. It is a shame that this one opponent felt the need to embellish the event to their mum BUT safe to say that is not what Upper Hutt is about. The rest of Karori were great to play.

 

R2 Woman:  Much better game this week - all on board though still strugging with the new grade.  3-1 loss to Wainuiomata.  MM goes to Ang Browne who came along despite being sick all week and with a suspected hamstring injury - thanks - it was great to have you there!!!

 

R3 Men:  BYE this week - stay tuned for next week.

Junior Club Game Results

23 June 2018

Here are the results of our Junior Club games from the weekend:

Kwik Sticks Year 7 & 8 P1 Boys

Upper Hutt vs Tawa

 

Result: Won 2-0. Captain Matthew P led the P1 year 7/8 boys to a 2/0 win against Tawa on Saturday. Coordinated team play and strong positioning created opportunities for Jacob A and Matthew P to score in the second half.

 

Kiwi Sticks Year 5 & 6 Premier

Upper Hutt vs Kapiti Kotare

Result: TBA

 

Hutt Kiwi Sticks 5 & 6 Development 

Upper Hutt Black Magic vs Raphael House Purple

Result: Won 7-2. Black Magic had a fantastic game against Raphael House Purple on Saturday with another win. 8-1. This week we focused on lots of passing and engaging all of the team, and trying to keep a some structure with defence, mid and attack players and passing between those positions. Sally G scored 2 goals, Aiden C 2 goals, Jamie G 1 goal for our team and 1 goal while playing for Raphael House because they were short, and Lucas C scoring 3 goals. This spread of goals showing that everyone was getting involved which was great. We decided to give two player of the days and they went to Kyle K and Izzy S-L for awesome mid field play by reading the game and giving 110% all game long. This week was our best game of the season and every week we continue to grow our skill sets and understanding of playing as a team!

 

Upper Hutt Black Silverstix vs Hutt United Tornadoes

Lost: Won 7-1. Silverstix played Hutt United Tornadoes. The teams were fairly evenly matched, which made for a fast-paced game. The Tornadoes played a great defensive game and it was hard to get the ball past their defense, particularly in the first half. Silverstix kept the pressure on, thought on their feet, and put together some great plays to edge the ball past them. The final score was 7-1 to Silverstix, with player of the day going to William.

 

Hutt Mini Sticks 3 & 4 Development 

Upper Hutt Super Sticks vs Hutt United Hurricanes

Result: Lost 2-4. UH Super Sticks lost 4-2 to Hutt United Hurricanes today. The Hutt team was very well organised and the score makes the game seem closer than it was. We had some lovely saves in goal and loads of defensive work to keep the score low. Our points were scored by Tova L and Fletcher C, with player of the day going to Tova for a particularly good save.  Happy 8th Birthday to Liam for this week!

 

Upper Hutt Goldstix vs Hutt United Blasters

Result: Lost 3-2It was a very chilly start to our game against the Hutt United Blasters on Saturday morning with the turf looking rather white brrrrrr lol. In saying that our kids went out and gave it their all. They all had a great game, lots of running to warm up, calling for the ball and passing. Unfortunately we lost 3-2 but very proud of all the kids to go and play such a good game on such a bitterly cold morning. Loss 3-2, POD Sam G 😊

Upper Hutt Mighty Maroons vs Hutt United Sliders

Result: Won 8-3. The Mighty Maroons had another early start at Maidstone. The temperature was -1 and the turf was white with frost. Dressed in our uniforms accompanied with hats and gloves the Mighty Maroons were ready to play. Our pre game talk saw them hungry for the ball. Dedication by the players saw slipping and sliding around the field, which paid off. By half time, the Mighty Maroons were up 6-1. At half time, hot water bottles and heat packs come out to warm the kids up. The players set up their positions and the second half was under way. Hutt scores two quick goals, which were followed up, by a disallowed goal to the Maroons. They fought back to score two goals before the final whistle. 

Final score 8-3 to the Mighty Maroons. 

Special thanks to our umpire Yasmin for stepping up and volunteering to learn how to umpire. Thanks to Kerry for mentoring her.

Senior Club Game Results

Game 6- Competition Round 1, 23/24 June 2018

Our top mens team finally got that elusive win - well done lads hard work paying off. Check out the Memorable Mentions and results for all our senior teams below: 

Results 2324 June

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: P2 Warriors with a scrappy win 2-1 over Vic 3. Memorable Mention goes to Isaac for his stunner first goal (set up beautifully with a crisp pass from Luke) and his second attempt which flew off the crossbar on the angle. Tight victory and a lot to still work on but great to get a win on the board.

P3 Woman:  TBA

P3.2 Woman:  A trip up to the sunmy Kapiti Coast this week for the P3.2 team!  The team had had some good chats and soul-searching over the week, working out how we can score some goals!  And good news - we did!  Unfortunately Kapiti scored more than us but hey - we got 2 so that's great!  Memorable mention to two players this week who really stepped up their game this week, fought hard and could see they were putting in to practice all the things we'd talked about - so good job Katie Tortise and Jenna Robson!  Actually - the whole team were fighting hard and working much better together - there were lots of leading runs and lots of passes being strung together. Good work team - keep it up!

R1 Men: MM goes to Rhys who saved a dragflick from Northern United off their first PC - it was awesome!

R2 Woman:  Memorable Mention TBA

 

R3 Men:  The R3 Men had a 4-2 win over Kapiti who are currently leading the league table. Memorable moment: The noticeable change in tempo and teamwork when the team got their nose in front at 2-1 and realised we could win the game against the table leaders. Our transition from attack to defence improves with every game and was instrumental in our success.

Junior Club Game Results

16 June 2018

Here are the results of our Junior Club games from the weekend:

 

Kwik Sticks Year 7 & 8 P1 Boys

Upper Hutt vs Hutt United

Result: Lost 0-6. The P1 year 7/8 boys played top of the table: Hutt United, at Fraser Park yesterday. Some strong defence lead to a 6/0 win to Hutt United. While this might not sound like a fabulous outcome, Hutt United is undefeated this year - with no points scored against them and this is the lowest scoring win they have had so far. Stand out play from Jared W, Archie C and Matthew P, which helped secure this relatively narrow defeat. Despite the challenging game, the entire team kept their composure and battled on to the end.

 

Kiwi Sticks Year 5 & 6 Premier

Upper Hutt vs Hutt Avalanche

Result: Won 7-5.

 

Hutt Kiwi Sticks 5 & 6 Development 

Upper Hutt Black Magic vs Upper Hutt Black Silverstix

Result: Won 7-2. Black Magic had a win against the Upper Hutt Silverstix on Saturday, 7 - 2. It was good to play another Upper Hutt Team and it was a great contest. Black Magic had a slow first half but then came alive in the second half. There was some really good hockey played by both teams with Jamie G, Ryan G-D and Lucas C scoring goals for Black Magic, with Jamie scoring 5 goals. The POD went to Sally G for awesome midfield play.

 

Upper Hutt Black Silverstix vs Upper Hutt Black Magic

Lost: 2-7. Today saw a battle between the two year 5/6 development teams. It was a real test of the players' focus as they were against friends and team mates, but they rose to the occasion and kept the pressure on the other team the whole game. Black Magic prevailed, winning 7-2. Coach Cameron awarded player of the day to Liam, and highlighted his strong defense and good technical skills to regain control of the ball when Black Magic players ran the ball down the field several times. Silverstix took some good learning away from the game, in particular where to focus their defensive strategies next game, and to continue to build on their solid passing and teamwork. 

 

Hutt Mini Sticks 3 & 4 Development 

Upper Hutt Super Sticks vs Rata Street School

Result: Won 6-0. The Upper Hutt Super Sticks played Rata St School yesterday and won 6-nil. The kids played really well with four goals scored by Fletcher C and two by Tova L. Rata St were down two players so we loaned them a player for each half with Casey T and Ruby M filling those spots.  Our POD was Johnny S for his great defensive and attacking work. 

 

Upper Hutt Mighty Maroons vs Hutt United Blasters

Result: Won 3-2. It was an early start at Fraser Park for the Mighty Maroons. A quick warm up saw the team warm and rearing to go.  Our usual pre-game talk saw the team hungry for the ball and one of the team’s managers umpiring the game. The first half was a fairly even game with a 1 all draw at half time.  Again, a team talk and a change of positions at half time saw the Mighty Maroons in a strong position.  The team worked together with the back working hard at defending while the forwards ran long and hard with the ball.  A goal by Hutt slipped past the backs and the Mighty Maroons were ready to score. Time was ticking on and the score was 2-1 but not for long. Open space up front allowed passing into the spaces and resulted in two quick goals. Time was counting down, the side-line started the countdown 10, 9, 8.......and the game was won by the Mighty Maroons. Score 3-2.  POD Deacon S

 

Upper Hutt Goldstix vs Hutt United Pirates

Result: Lost 4-6.The Goldstix played Hutt United Pirates. It was a tough game but the kids all got in and had a fantastic time. Unfortunately, we lost 6-4 but we didn't go down without a fight! Very proud with all the calling for the ball this week, trying to make sure they got into free space but even more proud that every week they are working more and more as a team 😊POD Levi S

Some qard fought games on the weekend, check out the Memorable Mentions and results below: 

Results 1617 June

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: P2 Warriors TBA 

P3 Woman:  Saturday's day was a bit of a grudge match as we were playing Kapiti 3 which has a couple of members from our team from last year who have recently moved out to Kapiti.  Kapiti scored the first goal very early on with us equalising in the first half.  The second half was a lot better for our goal scoring with us scoring 3 goals which gave us the bragging rights to our very great Kapiti mates. MM goes to Jane (me) this week for coming on as a striker (first time in many years ) in the second half and scoring a goal in the first few moments as a striker.

P3.2 Woman:  Well, the P3.2 team were a bit depleted this week with 3 players unavailable and one returning from injury.... so bring in our super sub Kelly Porter (thanks yet again Kels!), and new super sub Grace Boykett!  Thanks Kelly and Gracy for stepping in.  Don't want to mention the result - but our memorable mention has to go to Georgia Stunnell who soldiered on with a cracked rib!  

R1 Men: MM TBA

R2 Woman:  Memorable Mention for us definitely Sian - doing okay but she went 'above and beyond' by stoppoing a ball with her head! 5-0 loss unfortunately

 

R3 Men:  R3  men had a good gritty win prevailing 3 nil over Naenae. This was our first clean sheet of the season, so a big shout out to the unsung heroes at the back.

Junior Club Game Results

9 June 2018

Here are the results of our Junior Club games from the weekend:

Kwik Sticks Year 7 & 8 P1 Boys

Upper Hutt vs Northern United

Result: Won 2-1. The P1 Year 7/8 boys coach, Mike Parry, let his team know he was expecting to see some confident play on the turf today, and the boys responded accordingly! Good defensive strategies combined with some tight passing helped carry Upper Hutt to a 2-1 win against Northern United. Both Captain Jacob A scored impressive goals and Tyler H. Joshua T’s strong goal keeping held a number of opposition goal attempts at bay and the whole team kept the pressure on their opponents throughout the game. While the result was excellent, the boy’s positive attitudes, commitment to fair play and developing team strategy were also impressive.

 

Kiwi Sticks Year 5 & 6 Premier

Upper Hutt vs Pauatahnui Falcons

Result: Lost 3-10

 

Hutt Kiwi Sticks 5 & 6 Development 

Upper Hutt Black Magic vs Chilton Saint James

Result: Won 8-4. We introduced a new subbing structure this week which worked well and it allowed every player to play in every position as the game progressed. Chilton are a good slide but Black Magic had a fantastic game and in the end, we won comfortably. Jamie G had an outstanding game and scored 6 goals (yes 6) even though he was only attack for a part of the game, meaning he would of scored more if we kept him in that position. He played with amazing ball control and good drive to get goals. Lucas C O'Dl and Lucas C also scored a goal each with Lucas C O'D and Jamie getting POD. Awesome Team effort again.

 

Upper Hutt Black Silverstix vs Rata Street School

Won: 12-0. Silverstix played Rata Street School, winning 12-0. The team is really starting to gel, with some great passing and solid defense. Felix was POD today, and coach Cameron highlighted how several times Felix made the call to pass the ball back to a team-mate rather than taking the shot at goal himself - displaying great sportsmanship. Moments like this appeared through the game, with everyone playing their part in the overall outcome. Rata Street School were unlucky, as they had lots of attempts at goals, but they showed great teamwork and kept the pressure on Silverstix the whole game.

 

Hutt Mini Sticks 3 & 4 Development 

Upper Hutt Super Sticks vs Upper Hutt Goldstix

Result: Drew 5-5

 

Upper Hutt Mighty Maroons vs Hutt United Pirates

Result: Won 7-5. The Mighty Maroons faced Hutt pirates this week. We’d been told they were a really strong team. After a team talk before the game the Mighty Maroons decided they wanted the ball. It was a close fought first half that saw some great passing and defending. After halftime and another team talk the Mighty Maroons ran away with the game. The backs held their ground defending every ball and the forwards pushed further and further towards the goal. Final score was 7-5. POD: was Grace M.

 

Upper Hutt Goldstix vs Upper Hutt Super Sticks

Result: Drew 5-5. We played the Upper Hutt Super Sticks this weekend and had a fantastic game. We were down 3-1 at half time to come back to draw 5-5. The kids had a great time. I loved that they were calling for the ball, which they then managed to get the ball up the field to score goals. They all worked together as a team, which was awesome to see. Both teams played really well, can't wait till next week. Score 5-5 and POD Thomas Williams 😊

P2 mens

P3 Woman: TBA

 

P3.2 Woman: Well it was always going to be tough this week as we were up against the top of the table Naenae this week.  Fair to say they are a quality side who deserve their top of the table position.  All credit to our girls who gave it their all and finished the game with their heads held high albeit red faced from all the hard work they had done.  It could have been much worse if our goalie Lisa hadn’t managed to save so many shots!  And thanks also to our super-sub Kelly Porter - who got smashed in the hand with the ball at our game, she's tough tho so was all good to play for the R2 girls the next day!

R1 Men: MM to Tom's goal keeping which was outstanding and kept the score line as close as it was.

R2 Woman: TBA

 

R3 Men:  The R3M team had a 7-3 win over Kapiti. Memorable Moment: Daniel Badger’s persistent pressure on the opposition throughout the game which lead to multiple turnovers and breakaways and him scoring his first goal of the season. He clocked a quite a few Kms in this effort. Awesome!

Results 2627 PNG

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: TBA

P3 Woman: TBA

 

P3.2 Woman: The P3.2 team played Hutt United this week and the big focus was for our forwards to work their butts off this week to set up defensive screens - and by amount of puffing they were all doing when they came off we could tell they were working hard!  It paid off too and was great to see the team working more and more as a unit both defensively and attacking.  This was highlighted when our right half Emilee drove the ball up the field, the gap opened up for her to drill it in to the circle for a nice deflection off Georgia's stick - perfect!  Unfortunately we couldn't get another one in, so the game ended in a draw - but a well fought game yet again.

R1 Men: MM to Jase because of his goal off a PC. The first PC shot was saved but unfortunately for the other team went straight back to Jase who then scored!

R2 Woman: R2W - 1-0 loss in a hard fought game against Karori. MM to our Honourable President who could have drawn the game with a stroke …… good try and only just missed the goal!

 

R3 Men: R3M had a 3 -5 loss to YW Petone. Memorable moment: Rob Hamlin, seeing the keeper coming out, having the presence of mind to stop and flick the ball to the back of the net, putting us momentarily back in the game.

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: TBA

P3 Woman: This week we play our other Upper Hutt team.  I think this is the first time we have had two women's teams in the same grade.  Great effort from the team this week.  MM goes to Anastasia (Bob) for coming into a tackle from behind and getting hit int eh face with the stick.  Another trip to a&e for one of our team mates.  Luckily no stitches and hopefully only out for one game.  We have already used all our ice packs this season!!!!  Need to get more.

 

P3.2 Woman: Memorable mention this week to the entire team for wearing our 'alternate' strip due to us playing the other Upper Hutt team in an historic match this week - first time we've had two Upper Hutt women's teams in the same grade and have to play each other!  Fair to say it wasn't a popular choice but they all got on with it - although it was a tad confusing.  Special mention to Jenna Robson who thought her bright red socks went well with her aqua shoes!  

R1 Men: Memorable Mention to Craig  - for his goal line save with 2 defenders on him. 

R2 Woman: MM – good game – always hard with new players but everyone stepped up – just couldn’t get it past the Goalie.  Big thanks to Shane and Brenna who reffed both ends.

R3 Men: The R3 Men had a tight game against a young and very good Tawa side, eventually coming out winners at 2 – 1. Memorable Moment: The Defensive team working as a single unit. Special mention to Robert Roos (FB) running forward and turning 50/50 balls into “thanks Tawa” and late in the game, Paul de Haan (LH) guiding a Tawa shot at goal from a foot inside the post to outside the post. Outstanding defence.

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: TBA

P3 Woman: We drew 3-3. Not our best game this week.  Didn't seem to gel very well and it showed in the score.  MM goes to Lucy who had a great game.  Carried the ball well, great intercepts and was always available.

P3.2 Woman: Well the P3.2 team fought hard again this week, the 5-1 scoreline doesn't really reflect the run of the game.  Memorable mention to Lisa Malones in goal who worked hard and made a lot of saves!  Unmemorable mention goes to the bloody traffic to get to NHS .... what a pain!

R1 Men: Memorable Mention to Craig  - finaly getting his drag flick top right corner. 

R3 Woman: Memorable Mention must go to our team who managed to hold Vic to a 2-0 loss – first game in R2 a success. 

R3 Men: R3M had a 5 – 2 win against Karori being 2 all at half time. Memorable Moment: A short inspirational team talk from Tony de Barr towards the end of the 1st half that almost instantly led to a goal and certainly a change in momentum in the game.

Round 5 - Round Robin, 05/06 May 2018

On the weekend our Seniors played their placing matches for the round robin. Big shout out to our teams, who all did really well. The great news is that all our teams stay in their respective grades. Our top woman's team did play for 1st and 2nd but unfortunately the game didn't go their way this time. Watch this space though; we are confident we will see them again in the finals this year. The results and Memorable Mentions are below.

Results 0506

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: P2 Warriors had a loss 2-1 against Tawa. Memorable Mention goes to Nick for stepping up and taking on the centre half role in the second half. Bit more running than he's used to up front! 

P3 Woman: We played Naenae this week for 1st vs 2nd place and the winner would play the bottom of P2 to try to go up a grade to P2.  Unfortunately, we could not come away with the win so we will remain in P3, with a seeding of second in the grade.  Memorable Mentions goes to Ashley - our goalie, for the complete brain explosion in the second half that allowed Naenae to score the third goal.  Wouldn't have changed the outcome of the game and was hilarious to watch!

P3.2 Woman: It's a common theme with this team - another hard fought game this week but pleased to say we came away with the win! Memorable mention this week to one of our umpires Kerry Scannell who probably had to cope with about a million PCs ..... a slight exaggeration but there were a lot in row ...... pleased to say though our defence held them out (so much that a  Kapiti player was complaining that they'd run out of ideas!)  Also a memorable mention to Karey Stokes for making sure we got our match ball back :)

R1 Men: Memorable Mention to Luke passing the ball down the line to Blair who beat the keeper and scored an open goal with an injured wrist. A SECOND Memorable Mention as voted by the team: when Mike W and Blaire ran into each other and had a brief hug in between play. 

R3 Woman: Great game on the weekend – most of it with only 10 players and then the last quarter with only 9 – great strategic game and an honourable 3-1 loss.  Memorable Mentions goes to Nicky White who managed to break her wrist (seems to be a bit of a UHHC injury).

R3 Men: Memorable Moment: David Marinan dribbling and running the ball around and through the opposition Defence creating havoc for them and opportunities for us. Unfortunately, not all his layoffs in the circle were converted into goals.

Our Seniors have now completed their crossover matches, next week is our placing round. This will see SOME of our teams playing for 1st or 2nd and 7th or 8th. Depending on the results we could see our teams playing off to go up or down in their grades, exciting times to come! The results and Memorable Mentions are below.

Results 2829

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: 4-0 win for the Upper Hutt P2 Warriors. Memorable Mention goes to Ben Duncan. After being hounded to get his stick down to trap the ball he gets it done and slots away the final goal with a diving effort and a fantastic way to dispose of Karori.

P3 Woman: First cross over game for the grading round and another injury!  Poor Eleanor broke her clavicle (collarbone) during the first half of the game and Georgia took a ball to the head with 3 minutes to go...  We now have three out with injury with one of those players back in a couple of weeks.  Great win from the ladies with four awesome goals scored in the first half which gave us a good buffer going into the second half which was needed as we had no subs for the second half.

P3.2 Woman: Tough game this weekend for the P3.2 women - a few players out and a must win to stay in the grade game!  It was a hard fought game but with a nil all final scoreline and a result needed it was straight to strokes! Memorable Mention this week has to go to the five that stood up to take the strokes - isn't always the easiest things to do if you've not done them before so well done to DJ, Alice, Gabby, Jess and Emilee who did just that .... and did it well enough that we came away with the win!  Well done ladies!

R1 Men: Memorable Mention to Bryce's great goal - despite his busted foot!

R3 Woman: Memorable Mention TBA

R3 Men: R3 Men had a 5 – 1 loss to Kapiti. Memorable Moment – Nathaniel Plester jumping with stick at shoulder height at a ball flicked over the keeper and almost (but not quite) deflecting it over the top. Great commitment as an inside to get back and defend.

UHHC Fundrasing

We start off our fundraising for the season with our Seniors selling chocolate. We are selling Whittakers chocolate, $2 a bar.

We will do a variety of things to fundraise this year, fundraising is a vital part of keeping our club running; providing us new gear, helping to go toward WHA fees and most importantly keeping our subs down for our players. Hockey, though one of the best sports, is an expensive sport to play and maintain - so every litte bit helps. We encourage everyone to get involved where they can. Stay tuned for other events throughout the season.

Screen Shot 2018 04 22 at 6.47.53 PM

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: Memorable Mention goes Paul Hamlin on fire from the penalty corners with two top class drag flicks. The power and pin point accuracy make this an unstoppable weapon we are glad to own.

 

P3 Woman: Our game was all about the twofer!! Three players got two goals each. MM goes to Tammy for her two random goals. First goals she got in was from the back line and the goalie left it as she thought it was going out and just went straight across the goal and into the far corner.  Just goes to show that he goalie should never leave the ball even if they think it is going out.  Goalie 101!!  And the second goal was a scoop over the goalies head.  Great to watch.

 

P3.2 Woman: P3.2 women travelled to Kapiti this week for a showdown against a couple of ex-Upper Hutt players.  Result didn't go our way but memorable mention this week to all the defensive players - there could have been a lot more goals scored than there were and particular mention to Jo Boykett who put her body on the line numerous times and to DJ for being super speedy on defensive PCs and shutting them down!

 

R1 Men: Memorable Mention to Tom, saving an almost certain goal, diving from one side of the gial to the other after saving another shot!

 

R3 Woman: Memorable Mention this week for R3W goes to Kelly Porter who ran her little legs off and scored our only goal – thanks!

 

R3 Men: The R3 Men’s game was a closely fought affair against YW-Petone that ended with a 4-3 win in the last 5 minutes of the game. Memorable Moment – Robert Roos (our keeper) writhing around on the ground seeing off countless attacks just short of the line. Great effort that gave us the best result.

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: Memorable Mention goes to the supporters who turned up and gave their all in the midst of a lot of goals

P3 Woman: MM goes to Nic De Haan for her awesome reverse short at goal that sent to the top right corner but just a little too wide.  Looked very spectacular. 

P3.2 Woman: Was always going to be a tough game this week playing Naenae who have come down from P2 but another great team effort - everyone worked their butts off!  Memorable Mention this week has to go to our goalie Lisa Malones .... she played out of her skin, the scoreline would have been much higher if it wasn't for her agility in the goal.  Great work Lisa, and great to see the team working well together and supporting each other.

R1 Men: Memorable Mention - Byran for clearing the ball at a PC before it reached the top of the circle

R3 Woman: Our Memorable Mention for R3W is to Donna Lammie – second ever game for us and scored a goal – brilliant!

As a heads up really for the season - it will ave to be REALLY bad and super cold for training to be cancelled. It is important that even though there is no offical training to still do something, fitness is everything in this game of ours ;)

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: This week it goes to Vaughan Bayliss for continued saves that kept us in the game against Tawa

P3 Woman: Great first game of the season.  Some great team work and use of the ball.  MM goes to Ari who tore her Achilles heel in the first half.  Feel your pain Ari!

P3.2 Woman: First game of the season was always going to be interesting considering the team are up a grade from last year and pretty much half of the team is different to last year!  We also had a few players unavailable for this game, so it meant it had to be a massive team effort .... and it certainly was that so our memorable mention actually goes to the whole team!  Every single player slugged it out, sucked it up and got on with their jobs - we had people playing out of their usual positions and with people they'd never played with before - so the resulting scoreline of 1-1 was pretty good!  Lots to work on but it's all positive :)

R1 Men: Memorable Mention is Raph’s beautiful on-drive cricket shot defending a certain goal

R3 Men:The team had a 5 – 1 win over Kapiti. Its good to see some younger legs added to the side and we used our four subs to good advantage. MM: Watching young Harrison Bealing use his 37.5 inch canon from the edge of the circle. The shot was blasted shoulder height to the keeper who blocked the shot with his hand. The ball went skyward and landed back just short of the 23 metre line. Needless to say, the Kapiti keeper sustained an injury that necessitated him taking a short time off the field to ice his hand. What a bullet!

R3 Woman: Our Memorable Mention goes to Donna Lammie – first game, first time on the wing, played great – converted to hockey!!!

New Zealand hockey teams ready to open Commonwealth Games       

           

The New Zealand Men’s and Women’s hockey teams are all set to get underway at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, which starts on Thursday.

The Commonwealth Games will see more than 6,000 athletes and officials representing 71 Commonwealth nations and territories welcomed to the event cities of Gold Coast, Brisbane, Cairns and Townsville, all sharing in the celebration of sport, entertainment and culture.

The Men’s and Women’s hockey competitions will be played at the newly-upgraded Gold Coast Hockey Centre in Labrador.

As well as featuring some undisputed heavyweights, one of the beauties of the hockey competitions at the Commonwealth Games is the prospect of compelling match-ups between nations that rarely play each other.

In the first phase of competition, the 10 teams from each gender will be divided into two pools of five nations. With only the top two finishers securing a place in the competition semi-finals, there will be a considerable amount of pressure for the teams to start their campaigns with a victory and get crucial points on the board as early as possible.

WOMEN’S PREVIEW

With three current continental champions the women’s competition will be fiercely contested and difficult to predict.

In Pool A, England (FIH Hero World Ranking: 2) will be seen as favourites to win the pool but face stern challenges from Asian continental champions India (WR:10) and African champions South Africa (WR:14) as well as Malaysia (WR:22) and Wales (WR:26) - two rapidly progressing nations.

England will need to be at their best if they are to fulfil their ambition of winning a first ever Commonwealth Games gold medal after finishing runners up at the Kuala Lumpur 1998, Manchester 2002 and Glasgow 2014 events.

In Manchester England’s defeat came at the hands of India, a team that will fancy their chances of medalling at Gold Coast 2018, especially on the back of their outstanding title success at last year’s Asia Cup, which was played in Kakamigahara, Japan. Star striker Rani remains a talismanic figure for the Eves and could well inspire her team to their first podium finish at a Commonwealth Games since their silver medal at the Melbourne 2006 event.

Like India, South Africa are also continental champions, having claimed the Africa Cup for Nations last year in Egypt. Dirkie Chamberlain was a key player in that continental championship winning side and will once again again be one to watch. Although Malaysia and Wales sit further down the FIH Hero World Rankings, they both have enough quality to give their higher ranked opponents a serious run for their money at this event.

Women’s Pool B will be equally competitive, especially with fierce Oceania rivals New Zealand (WR:4) and Australia (WR: 5) in action alongside Scotland (WR:18), Canada (WR:21) and Ghana (WR:30).

The New Zealand Women are top seeded in the Pool at fourth in the world with hosts Australia one place behind. The Kiwis are spearheaded by the vastly experienced duo of captain Stacey Michelsen and Anita McLaren, who will both be competing at their third successive Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Michelsen, recently named a finalist for World Player of the Year, carries immense talent and experience having amassed 248 test caps for New Zealand while McLaren (252 caps) brings genuine firepower as the women’s all-time leading goal scorer, currently just one shy of her 100th goal. Both players will be hungry to complete their set of Commonwealth Games medals having won silver at Delhi 2010 and bronze at Glasgow 2014.

While the rankings gap between the Oceania giants and fellow Pool B competitors Scotland, Canada and Ghana is significant, they are certainly not teams to be taken lightly.

Scotland have some real talent in their ranks such as Great Britain internationals Sarah Robertson, Amy Gibson, Nicola Cochrane and Amy Costello while Canada and Ghana both performed well in their respective continental championships last year. The Canadians were beaten to a place on the podium by USA in the Pan American Cup, while Ghana finished second behind winners South Africa in the Africa Cup for Nations.

MEN’S PREVIEW

In the men’s event, Australia (WR:1) will be seen as favourites to claim a sixth successive title. Not only are they the top ranked team in the game and have the advantage of playing at home, they are also the current holders of the World Cup, Hockey World League, Oceania and Champions Trophy titles.

Australia will definitely not be given an easy ride in Pool A, with New Zealand (WR:9), Canada (WR:11), South Africa (WR:15) and Scotland (WR:23) all extremely motivated by the prospect of downing the Aussies on their own turf.

New Zealand, twice podium finishers in previous editions of the Commonwealth Games, will fancy their chances of medalling at this event, led by captain Arun Panchia.

Shea McAleese is the most experienced player in the team having played 258 tests, in what will serve as his fourth straight Commonwealth Games. The campaign will boost the 33-year-old’s career record at major tournaments to three Olympic Games, four Commonwealth Games and three World Cups.

Canada, led by experienced defender Scott Tupper are always dangerous and unpredictable while African continental champions South Africa and an improving Scotland team are also in the mix.

India (WR:6), England (WR:7), Malaysia (WR:12), Pakistan (WR:13) and Wales (WR:24) all feature in Pool B which looks extremely hard to predict.

As well as the always intriguing clash between rivals India and Pakistan, the latter of which is now coached by former India boss Roelant Oltmans, there is also the chance for Malaysia to gain a measure of revenge against an England team that thrashed them 7-2 in the semi-finals of the recent Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh.

As suggested by their rankings, Asian continental champions India and England, who eventually finished second behind Australia at the Azlan Shah event, should be the front-runners for the two available semi-final berths.

Both sides are blessed with numerous outstanding individuals, with India captain Manpreet Singh and England attacker Barry Middleton being two of numerous world class individuals contained in their respective ranks.

In recent months Malaysia have shown that on their day they are capable of beating the very best in the world, a fact proven by their impressive 2-1 victory over Olympic champions Argentina at the Azlan Shah event.

2006 Commonwealth Games silver medallists Pakistan will be boosted by the arrival of celebrated Dutchman Oltmans and could well challenge, while Wales will grab the opportunity to prove themselves against higher-ranked opponents with both hands.

The hockey competitions of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games get underway on the opening day of competition with the New Zealand Women going up against Scotland at 1:30pm (NZT) on Thursday 5th April before the New Zealand Men tackle Canada at the same time on Friday 6th April.

Both New Zealand’s opening matches will be broadcast live on TVNZ’s Duke channel.
