Eagles 38 – 28 Hogs
Resting several key starters on both sides of the ball, how would the Hogs respond to an energized UniSA squad more than likely playing their last game of the season?
UniSA opening strong scoring on their first possession, building a 14-7 lead midway through the second. Both Wyten and Welbourn threw early and often, trading touchdown passes, with a Knight TD giving the Hogs a 20-14 lead at the major break.
The Eagles stormed home off the back of special teams’ miscues (giving them excellent field position), scoring 24 unanswered points. While the hogs continued to move the ball, the second half belonged to the Eagles, their finals hope now resting in the hands of South City and the Oilers.
EAGLES: Wyten 2 passing, 1 rushing. Naulty 2 rushing. Draper 2 receiving.
HOGS: Welbourn 2 passing. Yun 1 rushing. Dawson 1 receiving. Knight 1 receiving. Kulumbu 1 rushing.
