NZ Women pip South AfricaTop of Page

2017 FINA World Championships
New Zealand has won its first match in game two at the FINA World Championships, pipping South Africa 8-6.

The Kiwis will be happy with the win, and will take the good moments of that game with them further into the tournament.

“It was a really stressful game. We had lots of opportunities in the first quarter to go ahead” said coach Angie Winstanley-Smith.
It proved to be a nail biter with New Zealand holding the lead four times and South Africa thrice. The Kiwis came from behind to blast home with four unanswered goals for victory.

Hutt’s Brydie Pye and Kirsten Hudson gave New Zealand a cracker start with a pair of bounce shots within the first three minutes. Big-shooting Kelly Mason bounced one in from the top to level at 3-3 by 4:56. Here the scoring stopped until halftime.

Hudson snared her third with a slider, an amazing 11 minutes after the previous goal, so tight was the defence at both ends. Lapses in defense and missed opportunities saw South Africa score two goals and put the Kiwis on the back-foot with just minutes left to play.

An enthusiastic crowd had plenty to cheer about soon after when Brydie Pye with a bouncer and Mason on extra from the top had the Kiwis back on even terms at 3:36.

South Africa called a timeout only for New Zealand to steal the ball and head up the pool and allow Mason to blast from Buda Castle at 1:25. New Zealand gained the ball and earned an ejection, calmly called timeout and worked the ball around, past the ejection time to Hudson who bounced it in from very deep right at 0:28 for what was a magnificent 8-6 success.

Veteran Kirsten Hudson, who scored three of New Zealand’s eight goals against South Africa, says the Kiwis will need to control the basics in order to be competitive against the States.
“The biggest word in our team at the moment is discipline” she said.

“We want to stop their counter-attacks, they’re very fast and very strong. We need to play to our game plan and eliminate our basic mistakes.”

HUTT MEN EARN BRONZETop of Page

2017 National Men's and Women's League
Despite the best efforts of Spanish import Daniel Cercols, the Hutt Heat men rose to the occasion and fended off a spirited Waitakere team to claim the Bronze medal.

Leading at one stage in the first quarter 3-1, the Blue Devils sank for the middle half of the game as Hutt Heat ended the first quarter in front 6-3 (Cameron Hayes 3, Sean Bryant 1, Matt Bryant 1, Jerome McGuinness 1).
 
The second quarter was more closely contested but Hutt Heat still managed to extend its lead to four, doubling the score of the Blue Devils at the half time break.
 
The Blue Devils needed to score quickly to make a statement at the start of the second half and they did so after twelve seconds through Rai Santiveri for a climable 5-8 deficit, but Hutt turned up the heat and scored the next three (McGuinness 2, M Bryant) to make the gap the biggest it would be in the game; six goals with over a quarter and a half to play in the bronze medal match.
 
Waitakere would score the final four goals of the game but it wasn’t enough to climb the mountain that the Heat had put in front of them and Hutt Heat claimed the NZWPNL bronze medal 11-9.

Congrats to Cameron Hayes who has named in the tournament team.



SEMI-FINAL HUTT HEAT 13 v NORTH HARBOUR 14 Top of Page

2017 National Men's and Women's League
On Saturday and in the semi-final where it mattered the most, both Hutt Heat and North Harbour Men pulled  out all the stops to earn their spot in the final.

It took North Harbour just eleven seconds to get on the board through James McLean from centre forward. Hutt Heat’s first goal came from a huge shot from Matt Bryant who rocketed the ball from halfway past North Harbour goalkeeper Dylan Smith for 1-1.

The Heat made it three in a row and had all the momentum when Jerome McGuinness scored a bar-down backhand, followed by a cross-cage shot from Sean Bryant for 3-1. A wise time out from North Harbour coach Zoltan Ridzyk stunted the Hutt momentum, and the Turtles claimed the last goal of the quarter through Anton Sunde off of a rebound.
 
From a Sean Bryant offload on a man up, Jerome McGuinness scored his second of the match for 4-2. The next two went the way of North Harbour through Jonny Clark on a six-on-five, followed up by left-hander Anton Sunde with a cross-cage ripper for 4-4.

Hutt Heat then scored down the other end by means of a penalty shot through Cameron Hayes. North Harbour outscored Hutt Heat for the quarter when Clark drew level at 1:01 from a post pop on a man-up and it was 5-5 at the half.
 
Jerome McGuinness gave a helicopter backhand a nudge but it caught the bar and he was then excluded down the other end but North Harbour couldn’t convert. The first goal of the third quarter did go the way of the home team almost halfway through the quarter when Couper earned an exclusion from a drive and Clarke let one loose and took the lead 6-5. The two sides went toe-to-toe as the score hit 7-7, but the quarter proved pivotal for the Heat as the put two goals in the back of the net (McGuinness, Sean Bryant) for a 9-7 lead at the last break.
 
They made the gap three at 6:02 when Adam Pye executed a brilliant shot on man-up for 10-7. North Harbour, however, were not down and out and did what they needed to do to stay alive in the NZWPNL and pieced three goals together (Anton Sunde 2, Jonny Clarke) to force the game into a penalty shoot-out.
 
Buoyed by a home crowd, North Harbour outscored Hutt Heat in the penalty shoot-out 14-13 and secured the chance to go for back-to-back NZWPNL titles.

HUTT: Josh de Reeper, Lachie Watson, Jack Ross, Cameron Hayes 1, Sean Bryant 4, Hamish Booker, Matt Quin, Conor Lui, Matt Bryant 3, Jerome McGuinness 3, Adam Pye 2. Coach: Craig McGuinness, Assistant: Chris Naylor,



Mens Finals weekend loomingTop of Page
  30 Jun 2017, 2:03pmitem # 2093

2017 National Men's and Women's League
Marist Magic have emerged as minor championship winners and favorites ahead of this weekend’s NZWPNL men’s finals.

The rankings at the middle of the table came down to the final two matches of the regular season, with North Harbour Cootes Construction taking on visitors Hutt Heat in what would become a precursor to Saturday’s semi-final.
 
After trailing by as many as four goals, Hutt Heat staged a major comeback to score four in the last quarter (Sean Bryant 2, Hamish Booker, Conor Lui) whilst holding North Harbour scoreless.
 
On Sunday, Sea Wolf at times matched the pace of the Heat but lapses saw the visitors finish the regular season with a convincing 19-8 win to take second spot on the table, relegating North Harbour to third with the Blue Devils sitting at fourth. Sea Wolf, with a win and a penalties loss amassing its points for the season, dipped out of a semi-finals berth but did record a handful of close matches in the club’s first NZWPNL season.
 
In Saturday’s semi-finals, first up will be Marist Magic taking on the Waitakere Blue Devils.
 
The second semi-final will see a re-match of the game a week before with Hutt Heat and North Harbour Cootes Construction. Of their three encounters this season, Hutt Heat has the advantage 2-1, although no game between them has been decided by more than a goal. Hutt Heat will aim for its first NZWPNL final since 2014, whilst North Harbour has a chance to go for back-to-back titles as they did in 2009-2010 and 2003-2004.
 
Four games. Four teams. Two days. One title. Catch all the action in the grand finale of the NZWPNL this weekend at the AUT Millennium National Aquatic Centre.

2017 National Men's and Women's League
After a tough semi-final loss on Saturday afternoon, the fight between Hutt Heat Women and North Harbour was always going to be a passionate one.

Having lost key centre forward Casie Bowry through injury, Hutt Heat lacked firepower at the beginning of the match but only after an Evie Mills outside shot from a man up to lead 1-0. Heat were hesitant on attack early on, allowing North Harbour to convert down the other end.

North Harbour were ahead 5-2 at half time, thanks to excellent work in centre forward from Emily Nicholson, who scored four of her team’s five goals.
 
Hutt Heat faced a three goal deficit heading into the third quarter. It was Koren Wilkinson who scored two goals in the quarter to spark Hutt Heat into fire, highlighted by a Kate Enoka lob close to three-quarter time to burst into the lead 7-6.

Veteran Kirsten Hudson stepped up in the final quarter to restore the one goal buffer, but Ema Carevic pulled through for North Harbour with two goals of her own in the final quarter to equalise and she would have the last say of the game in regular time for 8-8.

The NZWPNL bronze medal was to be decided by penalty shoot-out.
 
The two sides traded blows down each end of the pool in the shootout, but Gabby Crothall had the final say when she made a save for Hutt Heat and with it took the 2017 bronze medals.

HUTT: Gabrielle Crothall, Isabella Morrison, Evie Mills 2, Alex Boyd 2, Casie Bowry, Koren Wilkinson 3, Ciara Flynn, Charlie Wilkinson, Paige Walls, Brydie Pye, Kirsten Hudson 3, Kate Enoka 2, Megan Thomas
Coach: Megan Thomson;
Manager: Linda Pye.
