Rookies dominated early with a an eight goal to one first quarter but Steelers hit back in the second and third to go into the last change just two goals down.

A 12 goal to five final quarter sealed the win for Steelers.

Stormers also had a better start against Mana in the other Friday night match, but eventually went down 35-43. After being restricted to just seven goals in the first quarter, Mana managed more than 10 goals in each of the remaining quarters to post the win.

In Sunday’s match-ups, Rookies had a comfortable win over Sonix and Stormers won against an undermanned Steelers.
