In front of the fifth largest crowd in Bakersfield history, the Condors beat the San Antonio Rampage 7-3. 

8,862 fans packed into Rabobank Arena for the team's 19th annual Teddy Bear Toss. 

Thousands of bears were thrown onto the ice after Brad Malone netted Bakersfield 1st goal in the 2nd period. 

All of the bears will be counted Monday morning and donated to dozens of organizations by the United Way of Kern County. 

The team is expecting another sellout crowd for "Field Trip Day" Thursday at 10:30 AM.
