Eagles 31 v 13 Hogs
With the Bowl game wrapped up, the Hogs had nothing to play for… other than a perfect season. Were the Hogs coaches influenced by the injuries in game one, the Spartans losing two QB’s the week before finals. Probably. The Hogs sat Valles, Plamondon, Berrington and Renney, while playing Morton and Welbourn sparingly in the first half. The score at the main break Hogs 13 v 10 Eagles.
Would the Eagles handle the Hogs backups? Indeed. Stewart saw extended action for the first time in his young career, and in difficult conditions struggled. Poor decisions resulted two interceptions, one going to the house via Wyten. As the Hogs struggled to mount an attack, the Eagles took advantage of excellent field position, scoring three second half TD’s.
In windy conditions the Eagles coaches took the ball out of the air, Crummy attempting less than five passes in the first half. Given the Eagles recent INT woes, will this be a tactic employed during the prelim, where Spartans injuries could affect their ability to score…
Should be a tight one this weekend, see you at Riverside 3pm.
EAGLES: Crummy 2 passing. Burford 1 receiving. Wyten INT TD. Seve 1 rushing. Lonko 1 receiving. Plowman FG.
