Eagles 8 – 8 Oilers
With both teams needing a win to have a chance and advancing to the postseason, we have a tie! Both teams now playing for pride and the 2018 season, or perhaps hoping to be a late season spoiler…
The Oilers had chances early, turning over the ball inside the 5-yard line, and having a first quarter TD called back via penalty, something that would haunt them late in the game.
The game turned into a defensive battle, with both teams committing multiple turnovers, the Eagles throwing interceptions on consecutive drives, the Oilers just unable to capitalize on good field position.
After the Oilers took the lead via a rushing TD, Burford injected some life into the Eagles squad, connecting with Wyten to tie the game.
As both teams look toward 2018, the Oilers will look to build on an impressive two weeks while the Eagles need to settle on who will be their trigger man next season.
EAGLES: Burford 1 passing, Wyten 1 receiving.
OILERS: Smith 1 rushing.
