OILERS 14 V 13 EAGLES
After a high-octane early game, passes were flying early in the second game… into the hands of the opposition. The Oilers and Eagles took turns throwing interceptions (5 combined), yet the Eagles were unable to convert these opportunities into points at critical moments.
After completing a bomb, the Eagles were presented with 1st and goal inside the 5, The Oilers defense held strong and prevented the Eagles from taking an early two score lead.
Tedmanson showed great individual effort running the ball, on a day when he struggled to hit targets, Anderson’s extra point being the decider. The Oilers, lucky to win a close game, will look to tighten up their offence against the Chiefs in week 5.
The Eagles head to the break wondering how they let this one slip away and will need to improve as they prepare to face the Spartans.
The Gridiron SA community wishes Jarrod Shiels a speedy recovery after suffering a broken leg during the contest.
OILERS: Tedmanson 2 rushing.
EAGLES: Crummy 1 passing. Burford 1 receiving. Kelly 1 rushing.
