Captain Griffin Crawford holds the lower north tournament trophy with Mahurangi College teammates and competitors from Rodney College.
A new shield has been established between Warkworth Hockey and Albany Birkenhead Collegians (ABC) to commemorate the first senior match hosted in Warkworth this month.
The shield will be kept in Warkworth and will be played for whenever either ABC’s men’s or women’s team visits.
It was the first time the new Warkworth club had ever hosted a senior Harbour Hockey match on its home turf.
The standard of play didn’t disappoint the crowd with the men’s teams being well matched.
ABC Yellow are the table leaders at 27 points, while Warkworth is second equal at 26 points.
The score was 1-0 to ABC at half time, but Warkworth squared things up in the second half, resulting in a draw.
The Warkworth women’s team held on to their unbroken winning streak, winning the match 4-0.
Their comfortable winning margin means they get a bonus point for the match, placing them well ahead on the standings table at 37 points.
The Warkworth men’s team has a highly anticipated home game against Takapuna in Warkworth on Sunday, August 30.
Warkworth lost to Takapuna in the division one final last season in a close match that went to shootouts.
Meanwhile, college hockey teams also faced off at the Warkworth Turf this month for the lower north tournament between Rodney College, Mahurangi College and Bream Bay College.
Mahurangi College was dominant, winning 2-0 against Bream Bay and 6-0 against Rodney College.
