Open games split

The South and North Islands have split the opening games of the series in Hamilton.

The South women edged the North in a closely run affair that ended 2-0, while the North men dominated in a 3-2 victory over the South.

It was the first top-flight hockey for the Black Sticks players since the Tokyo Olympics.
