Oilers 32 – 26 Eagles
UniSA opened strongly behind a powerful Seve rushing TD, before the 2016 Southern District offence finally awoke after being largely ineffective through 4 games. Munce gave the Oilers much needed momentum, furthering the margin with a 95-yard kick return for the TD.
Further capitalising on UniSA errors, the Oilers continued to pressure the scoreboard with two Tedmanson passing scores (Procter, Eves).
The Eagles continued to fight, erasing a 12-point halftime deficit to tie the game in the fourth. Tedmanson responded with another passing score to Procter, sealing the first Southern District win for 2016.
OILERS: Tedmanson 3 passing, 1 rushing. Munce kick return. Procter 2 receiving. Eves 1 receiving.
EAGLES: Wyten 2 passing. Naulty 2 receiving. Seve 2 rushing.
