The Hogs arrived at Riverside looking to defend their title, with the Eagles looking to get their first W of the season. Conditions would prove difficult, as strong winds and rain drove onlookers inside.

Welbourn returned for the Hogs (post 2017 season-ending surgery) to move the chains early, although overthrowing potential scores twice early in the 1st kept the contest close.

The Hogs defense allowed Crummy to throw for 3 scores, but swarmed the Eagles running game.

Eventually the Hogs found rhythm, the efficiency of their passing game being the decider.

Thera-Plamondon being the difference maker in round one, with 3 scores (2 receiving, 1 rushing) and several key receptions to extend drives.
