Causing Havoc in the old world since 2506

Season 12 – Week 1 – Here We Go Again!

Season 12 league play kicked off with a bang as seven matches took place. Here is a quick round up of each of the matches.

New World Conference

Averheim Eagles 0 (1) – 4 (1) Nahuontl Natterjacks

The Natterjacks started their season off in style after dismantling the Eagles 4-0. The Eagles unfortunately continue their bad form off the back of the Challenge Cup and really could not get started at all. Anything the Eagles tried the Natterjacks answered back and most of those replies resulted in a touchdown. The Eagles are surely due a win soon to end this bad form.

The Mousillion Patriots 1 (1) – 1 (1) Vidarheim Thunder

The Championship champions were back in action against newcomers Vidarheim Thunder and most pundits and bookies had surely backed the Patriots to do the business. However the norsemen gave the Patriots fans a big scare going one up before halftime. They almost came close to a second but the Patriots hit back on the counter and tied the match. Neither team gave way in the last moments of the match and the Thunder will surely feel somewhat disappointed that they couldn’t come away with the win, but a tie with the Patriots will surely be a debut to remember.

Quenelles Chevaliers 2 (3) – 1 (3) Ragnar\’s Raiders

The fans of both teams were treated to an action packed match as newcomers the Quenelles Chevaliers took on the Raiders. The two teams traded blows with each other as the casualties on both sides mounted. The Chevaliers proved to hold their nerve however as they rode out the eventual winners in this close match. The Raiders will be disappointed to of lost this and a few players too.

Warpstone Wanders 1 (1) – 2 (3) Ghouly Grabbers

A frustrating match for the Wanderers as they took on a very formidable team in the Ghouly Grabbers who in the first few moments of the match took out a lot of their players and the early lead. The Wanderers tried to pick themselves up again but the Grabbers kept pushing them back each time. The Grabbers proved to be too strong in the end for the ratmen as they came out winners with the Wanderers walking away with a consolation touchdown.

Old World Conference League

Osterwald Ravens 2 (3) – 2 (0) The Deadly Spawn

The Ravens and the Spawn met once more in this season with the Spawn having beaten the Ravens in the last meeting. The Ravens, from the back of their League Cup last season, started the strongest of the teams and really hammered into the Spawn from the get go. Taking the early lead in the first half the Spawn responded as they normally do. The second half started with the Ravens receiving the kick and holding the Spawns defence off until midway through the second half to finally run in the touchdown. The Ravens defended well against the Spawn and the game was all but finished until in the last moments of the match the Spawn pulled out the craziest play for many years in the league to run in the touchdown drawing the match. Ravens fans will surely be very disappointed with the result, but can surely take some positives away.

Grudge Corsairs 0 (1) – 3 (3) Atrocity Exhibition

Super Bowl and Conference Champions Atroicity Exhibiton made their return once more to the pitch in a “Business as normal” match against newcomers the Grudge Corsairs. It was really only to end one way with the experience of the Atrocity line up as they punched and bashed their way to a 3-0 win. The Corsairs showed themselves well and were unfortunate that their hired stars didn’t get a chance to do a great deal.

Pastafarians 2 (1) – 2 (2) Bogenhafen Rams

The experienced Pastafarians were given a tough match against the new Human team the Bogenhafen Rams. Both teams played a fairly similar match and kept cancelling each other out. After a long slog of a match the game ended with a 2-2 draw. The Rams will surely be happy with this result against an experienced side.
