Celtic began the defence of their premier one netball title with a hard-fought 39-33 win over Gladstone Helloworld Gold on Saturday.

Celtic won the title when they upset Harcourts – for the first time ever – in last year’s decider.

That one-goal win was a major breakthrough for the Celtic club but has also put a target on their backs for this season.

The premier one division kicked off on Friday night with Harcourts playing St Matthew’s Collegiate A at Chanel College.

Harcourts proved too experienced and too strong for the St Matthew’s team, eventually winning 57-29.

In Friday’s second premier one match, Carterton New World Red took on Wairarapa College A and it was Carterton who got off to a winning start, taking a 54-35 victory.

In premier reserve action, Carterton New World Legends triumphed in a thriller against Harcourts Elite, 47-45.

Gladstone Helloworld Black beat Carterton New World White 41-32, while Greytown Homes Construction proved too strong for Martinborough 1, winning 47-26.

In the final premier reserve match, Mitsi Magic beat Hiona 49-34.
