72 reasons

Hogs 15 – Oilers 6


Team 1 2 3 4 T Outcome
Hogs 0 6 2 7 15 Win
Oilers 0 0 6 0 6 Loss

Being the final game for club legend George Williams, the Oilers had 72 reasons to get up and about Saturday. Undefeated Adelaide University perhaps overlooking the last placed Oilers, opened strong but drops and turnovers prematurely ended repeat redzone possessions.

A strong performance from Pedler (100 yard receiving) kept Adelaide University moving the chains, whilst adjusting to multiple new starters after the season ending injury suffered by league TD leader Olive last week.

The Oilers and Williams continued to bring defensive pressure, forcing 4 turnovers, with Munce returning an INT for a TD in the third to make it a one score contest.

The hog defense held strong for a second week, providing good field position late to ice the game with a Welbourn sneak. A strong effort from the Oilers, sending club legend Williams out in style.


HOGS: Welbourn 1 passing, 1 rushing. Pedler 1 receiving. Safety.
OILERS: Munce INT return for TD.
