Both teams were raring to go with the start of the league with AHS taking the centre pass. Lovely dynamic movement from AHS midcourt Vhairi Graham and Abby Sandison helped AHS push their way up the court but accurate shooting and great movement from Alina Murray and Zoey Symington helped Kiwis increase their lead. 14-6.

Changes were made to both teams to try and mix up play in all areas of the court. Some unforced errors made from both teams but Kiwis capitalised and picked up any loose balls converting them to goal. Strong defence of Kiwis Kim Johnson and Natalie Stevens both hunting for the ball, grabbing in some lovely interceptions from the AHS shooters May Young and Imogen Teale who rarely missed a shot. The quarter ended 28-11 to Kiwis.

AHS fought back in the third quarter with the strong defensive duo of Astri Balfour and Alice Haddon applying great pressure to the Kiwis attack. AHS linked well all the way up the court with the support of Kirsty Thomson and Eve Wiseman and converted most of their steals to goal. Kiwis kept pushing on with fluent movement from Holly King and Kylie Wood. Even though AHS got more goals in this quarter alone, Kiwis were still ahead 37-21.

Kiwis came back strong with powerful attack from Sanna Aitken and lovely shooting from Rhianne Johnston. Kiwis Libby Fox supported well at WD. A lot of end to end play but Kiwis dominated winning the game 45-29.

Players of the match were Kim Johnson for Kiwis and Kirsty Thomson for AHS.
