Last week the Manhunters faced the Innsmouth Shadows in a tense Semi-Final match in the Ankle Biter Competition. The match ended at full time with both teams having scored once during fierce blizzard conditions (in an underground stadiumâ€¦). We can exclusively reveal that shortly after the match went into the â€˜Golden Touchdownâ€™ period, the match was won by the Manhunters! None where more shocked then the Manhunters Head Coach who jumped into the air screaming â€œManhunters Win, Manhunters Winâ€.
The Shadows were less than impressed by this display. Moments before the Touchdown was scored they had the Manhunters on the ropes and where poised to score the winning Touchdown themselves. However the ball bounced into the crowed where it was thrown with perfect accuracy from the halfway line to the Shadows Endzone. From there it was a straight sprint as several players from both teams raced to get the ball first. To be honest the Shadows zombies and Flesh Gollumâ€™s didnâ€™t stand a chance against Blitzer Moist Von Lipwig and the Manhunters go through to the Ankle Biter final in 3 weeks time.
Questions where raised when it later turned out that the area of the stands where the ball was thrown in from was occupied by the entire Loren Rangers team. The Rangers deny any involvement and claim they where there simply to watch two of their old rivals battle it out. To quote the RangersÂ Star Thrower Erison Youngwhite:
I have never touched any of the Manhunters Balls
