Round 9 - Spartans vs Eagles
Round 9: Spartans Vs Eagles
The Eagles looked to rebound after a loss before the bye week and regain second position on the league ladder but the Spartans had other ideas.
UniSA opened strong behind an 85-yard TD reception from Ollivier, before former Eagle and new Spartans starting QB Van Pamelen hooked up with his new BFF Nassaris for two long TD’s.
Both defenses stepped up in the second half, forcing a scoreless third quarter, before Nassaris added a 73-yard TD run to open a two score lead.
The Eagles scored late, but were ultimately unable to close the gap.
Both teams now sit at 3-4 tied for 3rd place.
Spartans 22 – 13 UniSA
SPARTANS: Van Pamelen 2 passing. Nassaris 2 receiving, 1 rushing. EAGLES: Wyten 1 passing. Ollivier 1 receiving. Naulty 1 rushing.
