- Competition(s): Pepslay Challenge 2509/10
- Season: 2509/10 Season
Compared to recent weeks it has been quiet around here. The most dominating news story of the week has to be the Karond Kar Corsiars reaching the milestone of 30 games here in the HDWSBBL. We are all proud of them here in the WarZone as they have given us many hours of the carnage and bloodshed that we desire!
Of course the 30th game itself was played this week against recent nemesis the Drackwald Deadheads. Of all the teams the Corsairs have faced this season it has been the Deadheads who have been the biggest thorn in their sides after almost costing them the North Division title. This time around the match was in the 4th and final round of the Peplsay Challenge 2509/10. To the surprise of many the Corsairs had already had their chances of winning the HDWSBBL Challenge Cup ended by the Loren Rangers in the 3rd round. However the Deadheads where still in with a chance considering the two tems at the top, where only 30 points away from them. A decisive win would have swung it for them.
The Corsairs 30th game didn’t get of to the best of starts. Their offensive push ended badly when most of the Corsairs ended up on their backs after the Deadheads fought back. Ian Crush sprinted down the field hoping to capitalise on the fortunate turn of events but he was ultimately unsuccessful. The Corsairs fought back hard though and just before half time the Corsairs ran down the pitch and scored their first Touchdown of the match.
The second half saw both teams fight it out across the pitch trying to gain possession of the ball. The Corsairs managed to finally free it up to run home their second Touchdown. The Deadheads didn’t give up though and they managed to gain back some pride by shambling over the line to score a late Touchdown. The match ended 2-1 to the Corsairs and the Deadheads had their hopes of winning the Pepslay Challenge smashed and it looks like they will ultimately end up outside of the top three spots.
The second match this week was the final games of the season for both the Grappler Flesh Grinders and the Beaumont Blitzers. The Blitzers where still furious about their loss to the Tail Slammers in the final of the Slammer Shield and where out for revenge on what they saw as an inferiour Orc team.
As is the norm when two Orc teams clash the match was a giant slug fest with neither team willing to back down from the fight (as Deadhead coach Bob Pastey once put it “The Orcs turned up for a fight and a game broke out”). It was the Grinders who opened up the scoring managing to use their speed to dodge around the BLitzer defence. Our fearless reporter got totally confused at this point in time as the large number of greenskins merged into one blur for him. Both teams managed to score Touchdowns and with the end of the game in sight the Grinders where winning the match 3-1. The Blitzers never gave up though and used their desperation tactic of lobbing a Goblin through the air. Despite a rocky landing Bodgeit n Scarper managed to weave his way though the defenders and score a final Touchdown for the Blitzers.
The game ended 3-2 for the Grinders. After the match the Blitzers coach commented that this may be the last time we see them within he HDWSBBL. It would be a shame to see the largest team in the league go and we think the Blitzers have a few more fights left in them yet!
This week should see more of the final round of the Pepslay Challenge taking place. We are expecting action from the Tail Slammers, Ragnars Swift Velocity, the Wee Tree Fellows and the Valhallen Vixen’s. Rumour also has it that the Predators will take on Atrocity in what could determine the final winner of the Pepslay Challenge.
See you all next week with the results.
