On a cool, windy Saturday the Pigs took on the University of Minnesota at the National Sports Center in Blaine. With both teams missing some regular players the match was a bit sloppy. Nonetheless, the Pigs took an early lead with tries by Will Bryant and Joe Lang after some nice backline work. The U came back stong, however, and traded tries with the Pigs before scoring two more of their own to make the half time score 19-17.
The second half saw the Pigs score 17 unanswered points through some strong running and the kicking of Jason Naber, leaving the final score at 36-17.
