Round 1 Regional League Results

Round 1 of both the Auckland AFL and Canterbury AFL took place on Sunday 30 August.

 

Auckland

The Auckland AFL was back in action for 2015 with round 1 kicking off over the weekend, with the Waitakere Magpies, Mt Roskill Saints and University Blues all recording wins.

The North Shore Tigers had a great first up effort against last year’s premiers University Blues in wet and slippery conditions at War Memorial Park. The Tigers falling just short 3.6.24 to 4.6.30. The highlight of the day came in the last quarter where a series of slick passing from the Tigers saw them kick a goal into the wind to leave them only 6 points down.

Last year’s runners up Waitakere Magpies came out of the blocks fast with a solid win over the Manurewa Raiders down at Mountfort Park, Manurewa. Final Score: Waitakere 10.15. 75 def Manurewa 1.2.8.

Round 2 is on Sunday 6 September and will see North Shore Tigers take on Waitakere Magpies commencing 2.00pm at Onepoto Domain in Northcote.
