Hogs 27 – 18 Chiefs
After two underwhelming performances from their past three, Adelaide University had a point to prove. South City opened the scoring and the Hogs responded swiftly with a quick scoring drive to take a one point advantage. South City responded taking a 12-7 lead, both scoring drives coming off the back of an explosive (40+) passing play.
The Hogs replied with a 10+ play statement drive, not attempting a single pass whilst driving the length to take a lead they would never relinquish. The physical Adelaide University run game combined with key drive extending receptions ensured the Hogs won the time of possession, wearing the Chiefs thin.
The Chiefs scored late in the third, but Adelaide University replied immediately with a 94-yard kick return from Berrington, sealed with a Dietrich 6-yard TD.
Injuries eventually taking their toll on the Chiefs, they forfeit at the conclusion of the 3rd, the Hogs now headed to The Great Southern Bowl for a third straight season.
HOGS: Buckskin 2 rushing.Yun 1 rushing. Dietrich 1 rushing.
