Lady Carroll Shield Hockey

In a very evenly contested tournament, played on the Childers Road Reserve in perfect conditions, Napier narrowly retained the Lady Carroll Shield with a one point margin over the Poverty Bay A team.

Suspense was high at the beginning of the final round as both Poverty Bay A and Napier had seven points, but unfortunately for the home-side's supporters, the A team was held to a draw by their opposition, Poverty Bay B. Napier won their last game, and in so doing, claimed the shield for another year.
