Round 6 saw the Redbacks come crawling into the cave intent on causing a bite.
However, with our Junior Cubs warming up with the Seniors pre game, the man they call “Ox” playing his 200th, Mitch Rule being handed his debutant jumper and equal top spot again on the line, much was at stake.
A diligent Ringwood outfit were up for the challenge early in the piece, as we were expecting & headed us at qtr time by 7 points. Better ball movement in the 2nd saw us create 9 scoring opportunities with “Ruley” opening his account with his 1st major & an 18 point buffer at the main break. Oxley weaved his way through the Redbacks web in the 3rd quarter & brought the crowd to their feet with a scintillating goal in his milestone game, the margin again 18 points at the buzzer. Both teams slugged it out in the last, going toe to toe in a willing contest, the Bears doing enough & holding their nerve to walk away 19 point victors.
A huge thank you again to the crowd who attended, hope to see you again at home versus the Cats this weekend.
