Win in local derby sends Barbarians to final match of division 3 season undefeated.

The Milwaukee Barbarians defeated cross-city rivals in the battle of the undefeated on Saturday. Facing 4-0 MRFC, the 5-0 Barbarians scored early and after 4 minutes lead 5-0 with a try from fullback Seay. 

MRFC would take the lead for the only time in the match with a converted try at the 17-minute mark. 

The Barbarians hit back almost immediately to retake the lead and by halftime had a comfortable 22-12 lead with a try by Klein and a double form Fendryk. 

MRFC narrowed the margin early in the second half. But a red card to the MRFC scrumhalf and additional scores by Hergert and a penalty kick from Drobot were too much for the home side to overcome.

The win gives the Barbarians a healthy lead at the top of the Northern Conference standings.

This week they meet the Maoris (Fox Valley, IL) — top team from the Southern conference — at their home pitch at 1PM.
