Season 4 – Week 9 – First points for some and Business as Usual for others

Compared to recent weeks, this week appeared to be quiet with only four games taking place. Three of the divisions saw at least one game.

The match of the week was in North Division and saw the Wee Tree Fellows take on the Innsmouth Shadows in a clash of the bottom two teams. Going into the match, neither team had ever legitimately won a match in a league competition before (although WTF had won a game once via forfeit) so the stakes were high for both teams. The spectators were on the edge of their seats as the grinding Necromantics clashed with the agile Elves. In a close fought game it looked like the Shadows had a chance to take the victory but WTF fought back hard and ended up scoring four Touchdowns to end the game 4-2. As a result WTF picked up their first win in the HDWSBBL. Unfortunately for WTF, they lost one of their star Catchers Ant ‘Parky’ who managed to break his own neck trying to dodge around the Shaodws. Don’t worry though. Ant will be back next week, playing for the Shadows as a Zombie!

South Division saw two games this week. The first was a game between the Orcland Cleavers and Teotigua Predators. Early in the match the Predators took the lead with a swift Touchdown. It looked like the Predators would hold the Cleavers off but in the dying minutes the Cleavers Blitzer Horbag pulled of a spectacular manoeuvre which saw him dodge around multiple players, receive the ball under pressure and jump into the End Zone! In the end the match ended 1-1 resulting in the Cleavers receiving their first point in the Open Scramble 2509/10!

The second game in South Division was the return match between the Grappler Flesh Grinders and the Bile Blitzers. The last time these two teams faced each other the result was a disappointing Draw. This time both teams gave it their all. Gigantor, the Blitzers new beast of Nurgle managed to tie up most of the Grinders but in the end T’Yrong managed to slip free and score the winning Touchdown. After the match, the Grapplers announced that they had signed a Troll to the team. They hope that this will give them the boost they need to catch up the Rangers whoa re only 2 points clear at the top of South Division.

West Division only saw the one game between the top two teams of the division, the Valhallen Vixen’s and the Ruskin Arms Bar Flys. With both teams missing critical players through injury, invention was the name of the game as both teams attempted to adapt to their reduced rosters. This did lead to some interesting plays by both rookie teams and going into Haf time the result was 1-1. In the second half it was the Vixen’s who managed to adapt the quickest and score 2 more Touchdowns ending the game at 3-1. Both teams were relived after the match to find that none of their players were injured and they would be able to field a full squad for their next games. The Vixen’s are now quickly escaping the rest of the teams in the division and look like a sure thing to win it.

Coaches comment of the week goes to the Orcland Cleavers on the historic non-loss!

Fungus showed his true quality as I knew he would when I signed him, he inspired the Cleavers to an impressive drawn game. Last minute touchdown are something special to savour. And as Horbag blitzed through the last defender and spiked that ball all hell broke loose……magic!. The Cleavers are on the way up!
