A sunny afternoon greeted Batterham Reserve for the clash of the round.
With both teams undefeated much was at stake and the Bears clawed their way to an early 24 point lead. The 2nd quarter produced a more even contest with Upper having their share of the ball to reduce that margin to 17 points. A dominating 3rd quarter extended that buffer to 55 points on the back of a relentless team display, followed up with a steady last quarter to finish 42 point winners & remain undefeated.
Findlay kicked 5 goals in a powerful display, Mills & Christie ran relentlessly to snag 5 goals between them. A supreme team effort contributed to a great day at The Cave, names like Oxley & Billingham playing their roles too.
Chirnside Park awaits, another opportunity to maintain good habits with it.
