Brown's boot defies Berry heroics to sink Dragons in thriller

The Titans have repelled a spirited Dragons comeback led by Teagan Berry to win 23-22 in the NRLW at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

A Lauren Brown field goal with 40 seconds remaining broke the deadlock after Berry crossed for four tries during the match to help the Dragons remain in the game after a 14-0 lead early to the visitors.

An early try to Jaime Chapman on the left edge quickly followed with four-pointers to Jessika Elliston and Evania Pelite through the middle of the field in the first half.

Pelite stretches over to score

A piece of brilliance from Berry, who produced a stunning effort 40 metres out from the Titans' line, reduced the deficit for the home side before the Dragons were handed a reprieve when Destiny Mino-Sinapati bombed a try. 

Mino-Sinapati's one-handed put down attempt was picked up by the NRL Bunker as she dropped the ball on the siren and it proved costly as Berry's blistering afternoon continued with a further two tries for the Dragons to snatch the lead.

The Titans held their nerve after Berry's 90-metre effort though to go over up the other end with Chapman burning them on the left edge to cross for a double. 

Lauren Brown's off day with the boot was keeping the Dragons in it with Berry going over again to level the scores before Brown stepped up with next to no kick pressure on her to seal the win.

Brown gets her first of the season
