This feels like the third round, but I can’t tell for sure without looking it up and HA HA HA Good luck with that. Whatever:
At this point, there can now be no doubt that there’s at least one elf team thats playing to expected form.
Three touchdowns before the end of the first half? That’s a proper elfing that is.
They then kindly took a siesta in the second half, only scoring one more time before deciding to let the Norse have the ball as those berzerkers were beginning to take things a little personally, as one elf with a hilariously fractured skull could attest.
The Blitzers were eager to prove that they weren’t daunted by the Beard’s win over potential league favourites the Brak Var Dreadnaughts last round.
Putting down a drive mere yards away from the TD zone with almost comtemptous ease the beards then ground downhill in their traditional fashion for the first touchdown.
Second half saw the Dwarfs casually maintain their lead against an increasingly desperate Blitzers and score again. In two games, the Beards have shown themselves to be the ones to beat in this division, with the next rounds match-up between the Stags and the Dreadnaughts being as crucial as their own with Norsca Fire in determining who will come out on top.
I was going to start this report by pointing out that Elf teams have had mixed results this season, but then this round happened and unfortunately I don’t get to say that anymore. Bastards.
In the beginning it looked like Lustria Loco weren’t going to do anything to shift that trend as they gleefully smashed their way forward with the momentum they’d built up so far this season. Leading 1-0 in the first half, Locomotive seemed to have everything in hand. Then the Vipers had a singular moment of elvish bullshit that turned a 1-0 win and potentially an unassailable position top of the league for the Locos into a one all draw… that still puts the Loco’s in a pretty good position on the top of the table to be honest.
These “elves” managed to get an early TD, but the Lizzies rallied back to equalise. A scrappy second half saw neither side able to break the deadlock, resulting in a one-all draw that sees Liz N Let Die maintain their 3pt trail from the division leaders Lustria Locomotive. At this point it seems like only the Thunderers could possibly beat the Loco’s in points in the South Division.
The next round will be crucial it seems…
