Hautapu Sports’ Premier A side ended their season in style with a 41-33 win against Hamilton Marist to secure the coveted Waikato Breweries Shield.

In front of their own supporters at Memorial Park, the Hautapu side led from the start and never relented.

After leading 26-12 at half-time, they repelled a late resurgence by Marist to take their third Breweries Shield in five seasons.
