The Southland men's team finished third and the women's team sixth at the national seniors tournament in North Harbour.

The men's side beat the home team 6-1 yesterday to finish third behind eventual winners Wellington and runners-up Canterbury.

They were runners-up in the same tournament, which is made up of association teams and runs alongside the national hockey league, last year.

Dean and Craig Ritani, and Nathan Gilbert were selected in the men's tournament team, while Brenda Hope and Megan Winsloe were named in the women's tournament team.
