Season 3 – Week 29 – League and Shield Champions Crowned

After almost 30 weeks of matches, we have our first two champions of the season!

The first final of the season was the climax of the Hunts Havoc 2508/09 for the HDWSBBL League Championship. 58,000 fans crammed into the HDWSBBL World Stadium to witness the clash between the North Division winners, Karond Kar Corsairs and the East Division winners the Mc Cauligh Reavers.

This wasn’t the first time these two Dark Elf teams had faced each other. They have recently faced off in the Semi-Final of the Championship III tournament in which the Corsairs where victorious. By all accounts this was a violent affair with many of the Reavers finding themselves being carried into the dug-outs during the first drive.

Although his ‘demonic’ form wasn’t too evident during the match, Takarath Balefire was crowned the Corsair MVP and as a result officially became the best player of the Hunts Havoc, beating Fredrick Roeder by only 3 Star Player Points! (cue Mr Rockstein to kick off).

The Corsairs will now celebrate this victory at their home stadium before focusing on the Championship III final in a few weeks time. They could be the first team to ever win both the HDWSBBL League and HDWSBBL Championship cups!

The other final played was the final of the Ankle Biter competition. Although it has received some bad press as being a ‘loser’s cup’, both the Beaumont Blitzers and the Middenhein Manhunters gave it their all. After missing out on any other chance for glory this season both teams where desperate for a victory. The Blitzers have been unstoppable during the competition and arrived at the match in peak form. The Manhunters where also on a rare winning form not seen since the end of the 2506/07 season!

A lot of the fans where surprised by this encounter as there was not as much blood as expected. Instead we saw a tactical display as both teams tried to bring some prestige to the shield. This credibility was blown away the instant a goblin was thrown deep into the Manhunters defence to score the winning Touchdown!

The only controversial moment of the match was when the Manhunters where about to equalise moments before the end of the match. The Blitzers managed to push the Manhunter catcher towards the crowd. With some amazing agility he managed to leap out of the way but the Orcs in the front row jumped onto the pitch and pulled him back in! The result was the ball being thrown back towards the line of scrimmage right into the hands of the Orcs (almost exactly like the Manhunters game against the shadows in the Semi-Final of the very same competition, only this time the Rangers where nowhere to be seen). Without this intervention the Manhunters may well have equalised and forced the game to go into golden Touchdown.

Rumour has it that after the loss the Manhunters have already quit the league and are heading towards the port for a long voyage to Lustria. We will provide an update should this be confirmed.

    You know it is nice of you guys to think of me but I really cannot be bothered to play politics today. If the lying, scheming, scumbag Eleves want to play dirty then let them. We all know who the better player is.
