Rezzers beat main rivals to seal title with time to spare

RESOLUTION IT GREEN have dealt with the last obstacle that could have potentially diverted them from Premier Division glory.

Rezzers Green trumped Titans 46-39 on Tuesday to extend their lead over the conquered to 13 points and although two match weeks remain, they are now assured of lifting the Winter League’s top prize.

The in-form Titans entered Les Beaucamps with a tiny outside chance of catalysing a league upset, which would have required a few hiccups for the leaders in subsequent matches, but Rezzers put paid to this with a potent team performance.

Expertly countering Titans’ ‘short-and-sharp game’ in the circle proved key to avenging last month’s one-goal defeat to the deft hands of that same side.

Titans shooters Kerri Brown and Steph Batiste remained highly threatening, Batiste extending her lengthy list of player-of-the-match nominations, yet they met their match in a well-contested thriller.

Rezzers' joint 'PoM' honours went to goal-attack Anna Burns and goalkeeper Abby McCracken.

To the delight of Rezzers captain Tiff Gervaise-Brazier, who worked tirelessly throughout at centre despite an ankle injury concern at the weekend, they stifled any hopes of a Titans comeback.

‘I’m pleased we managed to sustain the win throughout,’ she said.

‘Defensively, I thought we were really good today and once we settled, we started to make good use of our turnovers.'
