Season 4 – Week 17 – A legend is born

After a couple of weeks off for the Empire Mordstill celebrations, the league was back in action this week. Officially 5 games took place however 3 of them where sadly forfeits including the qualification match for the Slammer Shield!

The first match was the final game in South Division between the Cleavers and the Bile Blitzers. A win for either team would have cemented their position in fourth place in the division meaning that they would have to avoid the qualification match for the Slammer shield. The last encounter between the two teams resulted in a win for the Bile ones so the Cleavers came out strong for the match. The Cleavers used their superior strength to plough through the rotten bodies of the opposition to score 4 times. Although the Blitzers fought hard during the match, in the end they could not keep the pace resulting in “another rotten” game.

The second game to take place this week as between the Corsairs and WTF. The Corsairs where looking for the win as it would almost guarantee them the North Division championship. From the opening moments, WTF knew they had a fight on their hands. The Corsairs rampaged through their team resulting in some serious injuries including top thrower Hamish who was taken out with a smashed collar bone before he had a chance to pick the ball up.

From there the Corsairs ground them down to a man ultimately killing two of the Elves and maiming three others. One of these deaths was by Balefire himself who can now claim to have killed 6 HDWSBBL players on the pitch (out of 9 attempts). The Corsairs ended up scoring 5 times although WTF did manage to score once when their mercenary Thrower managed to end up with the ball in the Corsairs half.

The highlight of the match though was Corsair Blitzer Valdrek Bloodgate scoring a Touchdown, causing a (fatal) Causality, catching an Interception and making a successful pass in the same game. After the match, the fans declared him the MVP of the match making Bloodgate the first person in HDWSBBL history to accomplish this amazing feat! The HDWSBBL commissioners where so impressed that a new award has been created called the Bloodgate which will be awarded to any future player should they accomplish this amazing feat.

The Slammer Shield was also due to have its preliminary qualifying match this week between the 5th placed teams from North and South Division. The Innsmouth Shadows where due to take on the Bile Blitzers but the Bile ones just didn’t have any fight left in them after their defeat at the hands of the Cleavers. As a result they forfeited the game.

The remaining two matches was the conclusion of the Bar Flys career here in the HDWSBBL. Their two remaining league opponents the Man Eaters and RSV where awarded the automatic win as a result of the Bar Flys Dropping out.

This week should see some action but most of the teams will be preparing themselves for the start of the recently announced Slammer Shield and the Championship IV.

Obituaries for Week 17

  • Quakesweat (Rotter for The Bile Blitzers): Hisdiseaseridden flesh was torn open and sprayed over his body. what a rotten way to end his career. 

  • (11) Dougal ‘Furball’ (Linesman for We Tree Fellows): Had the “honour” of encountering Balefire in one of his moods. It was noted that the spray of blood from his ruptured neck drenched the first three rows. impressive. 

  • (16) Mcoist ‘Ranger’ (Linesman for We Tree Fellows): Killed by Bloodgate on his way to setting his immortal record. Poor Mcoist learnt that you cannot stop destiny!
