The womens quarter finals schedule has been confirmed following the conclusion of pool play at the Ford National Hockey League on Tuesday.

Auckland came through the day as the only side to win all three of their pool matches after downing the Canterbury Cats 1-0.

Both sides played out a tight and goalless first half before Samantha Harrison delivered the winning goal with a cracking reverse shot in the 40th minute.

Auckland, who finish top of Pool A with 12 points, now prepare for a cross-over quarter final against the Central Mysticks (4th in Pool B) at 3pm on Thursday.

Northland wrapped pool play undefeated but had to work hard for a 3-1 shoot-out result over the Central Mysticks after the score was level 2-2 at fulltime.

Central scored the first two goals through Hope Ralph (7th minute) and Tinesha Carey (17th minute) to carry a 2-0 lead into halftime.

Northland stormed home in the second half with Jodie Nichol scooping a double from the field to force the deciding shoot-out.

The two competition points were enough to secure Northland a first place finish in Pool B, setting up a quarter final against the Southern Storm at 1pm on Thursday.

In other results, Midlands edged past North Harbour 1-0 thanks to a second half penalty corner goal scored by Gemma McCaw.

The Capital Cyclones overcame the Southern Storm 4-2 to close out the days play with a brace from Jess Chisholm and additional goals to Lydia Velzian and Amy Lawton.

The women now have a day off ahead of Thursdays quarter finals while the men play their final round of pool play from 1:00pm tomorrow.
