Season 7 – Week 9 – The Playoffs in Sight!

Nordenringen Titans vs Sect of Temptation

The Sect seem to have lost what little momentum they had over the Christmas break, going down 2-0 in the first half. This sort of performance doesn’t look good for their shield chances.

Drakwald Defilers vs Har Ganeth Heartbreakers

The now resurgent Defilers made good work of the Breakers, who still managed to buck the trend and only take minimal casualties from this infamously violent team. Another win for the Defilers as they continue their crusade to try and take the Slammers top slot and ensure their position in the second round of post season.

Barak Varr Rebels vs Talos Tobacconists

A game of ups, downs and deathrollers saw the Dwarves leading in the first half, only for the baccies to stage a comeback in the second. Both teams gave performances to be proud of and both teams are looking good for the post season.

Tail Slammers  vs Gitz & Shiggles

These two outlandish and unpredictable teams met on the pitch with an almighty splat that saw the Gobbos come off the worst. Numerous knock-outs and the odd injury saw the Gitz unable to respond to Arcani Sparks trademark “Slammers Style” and the rats beat the gobbos two goals to one.

Another win here for the Slammers continues to keep the Defilers are bay, but the top spot in NWS south is going to go right to the wire.
But with the Slammers looking at Atrocity for their final match and Defilers playing against whatever Dreddmen are calling themselves these days, is this one hurdle too far for the “Jammiest rats in Jammy town.”?

Temper Bay Maruaders vs Jimps and Perps

Oh dear. Not even multiple name changes can save these poor buggers as they continue to face hard team after even harder team. Maybe the last game of the season will earn them a reprieve? Nope. It’s the Defilers.

Nacthaften Nightlords vs Asgard Marauders

A game that proved to be a lot harder for the Nightlords than it appears on paper. The Other Marauders put on a sterling show against a team that given so many so much trouble over the season. In the end though the Vamps managed to secure a 1-0 victory.

Atrocity Exhibition vs Brimstone’s Shadows

Even though a draw against the Atrocity counts as a win against any other team, the snooty elves of the Shadows still left in a huff due to what they called “highly unsportsmanlike behaviour” from Atrocity Exhibition.
One can only assume that some kind of long term brain damage has occurred causing them to forget that they are playing bloodbowl and not some kind of knitting competition.
…that said, I’ve met some old grannies who were lethal, and I do mean lethal, with a pair of knitting needles in my day.

Blackburners vs Finbar United

Lacking two of their players, Blackburners were looking at an uphill struggle against the FU. Despite this they put in a good showing and were able to go 1-0 up by half-time. However despite all of their best efforts they just couldn’t stop the FU from equalising in the dying seconds of the match. It also saw more unfortunate casualties for the Burners, with Bogoff, their primary fouler taking on a back injury that will keep him out of the Burners – Asgard Marauders game.
