Rennie celebrated its first win of the season after a 201-point caning of Blighty at Blighty on Saturday.
Both sides went into the clash winless after starting the season with 10 consecutive losses.
The visitors signalled their intentions early as they produced one of their best quarters of football for the season to pile on nine goals to nothing in the opening term.
The Hoppers inflicted further pain on their opponents in the second quarter to head into the half-time break with a 15-goal lead and the home side scoreless.

Chase Strawhorn led the onslaught with 13 goals but was pipped for best-on-ground honours by Jack Kennedy.
Marc Lonergan also enjoyed a day out in front of the big sticks to boot nine goals and also feature high in the Hoppers' best.
Tom McKimmie, Jack Welsh and Alex Brooks also ran riot in the thumping win which virtually guarantees the Hoppers will avoid the wooden spoon.
