The pundits were all backing Norse to win this game, and some fool told the Dwarves. The resultant carnage would have made even a Khornate team flinch and go “Steady on lads”. Nothing could stop them in the first half, dispatching player after player, not Zara, not Wilhelm Chaney, and the Death Roller wasn’t even on the pitch yet!
And they just kept going in the second half, until the Norse managed to tackle the Deathroller as it was trundling along, leaving the ball uncovered. But the fury and carnage was too much, the Norse must have been too intimidated, as nerves got the better of the players again and again.
There were opportunities to be had, but in the end they couldn’t capitalise on them, 2-0 to the Dreadnauts and a resounding tournament victory for the Dwarves.
We managed to get a quote from the Halfling team mid game here, lemme see if I can find it (rustling of various pieces of paper) ah, here it is:
“One day I dream of getting the ball into the other half”
…yeah. At one point those frogs actually managed to cleanly separate the entire Halfling part of the team from the Treemen part of it, and there was a LOT of Treeman in this game.
It seems like after multiple years, the Spacehoppers have finally found their groove, and thanks to that, they managed to secure third place in the tournament and more silverware for this, the only Slaan team with any.
The Bile Blitzers’ lone pestigor continues to the be the only player who realises this is (allegedly, I don’t believe it either) a ball sport, and he’s beginning to get really good at it. However unlike the ‘flings of the last round, these amazons weren’t going to be intimidated by the beast, and they dragged it down and fouled it off the pitch.
For a moment glory loomed for the Blitzers but at that last moment, the ball carrier tripped over his own fetid toes, and the tide turned.
Rallying back, the Thunderers mounted the charge and scored twice in the second half, coming back from being one behind in the first half for a 2-1 win, and to beat off [ooh er missus – ed] the Blitzers for the 2nd place finish.
A tight game were nothing noteworth happened. EXACTLY what the Elves have been waiting for, and they must be praising Nuffle for that.
The elves for once proved all of their detractors wrong and actually managed to outscore their opponents, denying the Rainmakers 3rd place. But whether this last spurt of performance is enough for us to ever see them again only time will tell.
Confidentially, I don’t think these Jr division players for the Pastafarians are going to be seen again in this league. I mean, those three that the Troll ate this game wont be for a start.
