The game started with a pitch invasion, leaving the receiving Tree huggers short of a few essential players. They managed to pick-up the ball, but without enough players left to protect the ball carrier, the Mighty Zugs, cheered from the sideline by Kari Coldsteele, were able to release the ball very quickly, and then to secure it. Yeregg Bone-Chewer quickly sent Bregalad to contemplate the flowers on the ground, and the poor Treeman was unable to stand for the rest of the game. Gorcng Oakenrun got sent to the infirmary by a vicious foul from Eber Wendel, and for the rest of the half, the Mighty Zugs kept fouling Enggoth Sagerock, who somehow survived (although he was stunned all the time). The Tree Huggers, through very brave and slightly desperate maneuvers, did manage to deprieve the Mighty Zugs from the ball a few times (even killing Uther Meinard in the process), but failed to bring it to security, allowing, in the end, Admund Ulman to take the ball accross the touchdown line in the last seconds of the drive. In the second half, Kari Coldsteele joined the Mighty Zugs on the pitch. The strength contest continued between Bregalad and Yeregg Bone-Chewer, with a clear advantage for Bregalad who nevertheless failed to make a decisive blow. The Tree Huggers managed a few impressive acrobatics, keeping a strong pressure on the Mighty Zugs, but a failed pass and the death of Enggoth Sagerock at the hands of Jörg Leopold tolled the bell for the hopes of the Tree Huggers (let Enggoth fans be reassured, the Tree Huggers Apothecary was able to revive him). Having freed themselves from the Elves, the Mighty Zugs were able to bring the ball accross the touchdown line again, in the hands of Seneschal Ottoman. The game was nearly at its end, and the Tree Huggers tried a last desperate maneuver, which failed miserably when Daggael Riverbrook failed to pick the ball. 2017-09-14 09:11:10 Match: The Mighty Blow's (1) vs. Temple of Doom (0) The Norse team sneaked a 12th man onto the pitch for the first drive, and Hack Enslash took himself out of the game early meaning the Norse had a player advantage for the first half. They gave the Khemri a few rough shoves including permanently injuring one of the four tomb guardians and scoring in turn 7. Sinnebad came on to stab someone and was also sent off to end the half. In the second half the Khemri team got mid pitch position. The Norse managed to chain push into a position where the Khemri team had to make a break for it, which they did. The Norse star lineman was going to blitz the lone throw ra down at the touchdown line but tripped and fell stunning himself.... with no threats near him, instead of scoring and thinking he was safe the throw ra danced along the TD line and fell in a pit trap spilling the ball lose and his poor agility meant he was unable to recover it. The Norse team were able to hold the Khemri off for a few more turns to take the victory. 2017-09-12 20:38:45 Match: Yog-Sothoth Beardies (2) vs. Snottown Crushers (1) First half was full of fun, Snottown Crushers won the toss and chose to receive. The Snotlings were uncannily strong on their feet and Frodo survived his fare share of blocks and scored on turn 4 after dodging like his life depended on it (which it actually did). Meanwhile, J'Jug G'Crunch sent Moe to the infirmary. Surprisingly, the Chaos Dwarves managed to counter-attack quickly and after a running game which would have made a Snotling proud, Ga scored in turn 7. The ball then was thrown back deep field and the Chaos Dwarf got a blitz, preventing the Ogres from trying to throw a Snotling across the field. Second half was typical dwarven game, with a high kick ensuring that Ga got the ball again, and then a slow and painful grind through the Ogre lines, helped by a lot of boneheads, to a last minute score. Having used all their re-rolls, the Ogres chose to rather use their last turn to bash some hobgoblins, with M'Grunch Elfeater killing the poor Meu for some endgame satisfaction. 2017-09-10 06:29:36 Match: 21 Jump street (0) vs. Tangled Up In Blue (0) Unplayed 2017-09-04 07:48:41 Match: Kaospiloterne (0) vs. Gobpoppers (0) Unplayed 2017-09-04 07:48:11 Match: Milk of the Puppet (0) vs. Pot Belly Jammer (0) Unplayed 2017-09-04 07:47:50 Match: Scrats (2) vs. Sons of Korhal (1) The Bloodbowl. 2017-08-29 16:33:06 Match: The Turkeys of Doom (0) vs. Dead Slann (0) Created in error 2017-08-27 15:35:28 Match: Scrats (0) vs. Sons of Korhal (0) Game scheduled in error, please see the other one. 2017-08-22 09:38:31 Match: 21 Jump street (0) vs. The Iron Ladies (2) End to end stuff. In their first drive the Frogs flunked a couple of pick ups which allowed the Zons to pressure the ball which eventually led to a interception. The Zons then failed to cage up, allowing the Frogs to move the ball up to within scoring distance, before the Iron Ladies managed to recover the ball and work their way to the other end of the pitch for the TD. The Zon's drive went up the sideline and almost got derailed when the ball carrier could have been surfed but for a failed leap, the girls then managed to squeeze one in to get their second. A steady stream of KOs and CASs helped the Iron Ladies to hold off 21 Jump Street so they could emerge victorious. 2017-08-22 09:15:07 Match: No Gain No Pain (1) vs. Tangled Up In Blue (0) Because of delay of previous round: 1-0, no postgame. 2017-08-11 22:24:10 Match: Kaospiloterne (0) vs. Testery (1) A very unlucky game for Chaos. thanks for the game 2017-08-02 19:14:26 Match: Milk of the Puppet (1) vs. Scrats (2) Top of the table clash. Close game with multiple sackings for both teams. A score each the first half and then in the second the defining moment was when a vamp snaked a gfi whilst sprinting clear and BHed himself. This allowed the rats to collect the ball and eventually (after yet another sacking) get to the other end of the pitch to score the winner. After a horrendous last season, the Scrats have bounced back and have (I think) topped their group. 2017-07-24 22:37:16 Match: The Turkeys of Doom (1) vs. Delting (1) In a very sunny game, the Elves scored in turn 3. There was a scuffle in the middle but the humans broke free and scored near the end of the half. The second half saw a get the ref result early and while the humans lost the benefit of the doubt early the elves got some brutal fouls in and reduced the humans numbers and allowed the elves to contain the offence and briefly steal it. Hilariously the humans took a weeks break before playing turn eight and dodged out of heavy coverage and made a hand off and a double gfi into the endzone.... and then realise they had gone the wrong way. The Elves got another stat freak to go in their collection of stat freaks. 2017-07-19 21:32:02 Match: Memes (0) vs. Old World Kings (2) Vampires scored early on a passing play. Memes struggled to stop the vampires stealing the ball and it looked like a 2nd TD on turn 6, but Memes stripped the ball carrier and threw a long bomb to set up the TD on turn 7. Unfortunately the dark elf ball carrier failed his GFI in the end zone and KO'd himself. The second half was similar, with the vampires stealing the ball and looking to score, but the memes managed to steal the ball and Putin the goblin looked to even the score until he was killed by Romulus. The Vampire pulled off the pitch length pass/hand off play to go up 2-0. 2017-07-16 16:51:39 Match: Testery (0) vs. Dirty Night Rockets (0) Unplayed 2017-07-14 07:12:55 Match: Rat'vengers (4) vs. Tree Huggers (1) Another game for the Tree Huggers, another defeat, probably their lamest in their losers' career. They dropped balls, they knocked themselves off when trying to block, they tripped on their own feet. They somehow managed to score one touchdown, although nobody really understands how this happens. The Rat'vengers, on the other side, had obviously performed some secret ceremony in the Skart tower to please Nuffle. Not only were they better players (nobody doubted that), every thing they tried succeeded, and when they failed, they still managed to succeed. A very unbalanced, but quite fun game in the end. 2017-07-10 11:26:27 Match: The Mighty Blow's (1) vs. Jurasic Thunder (2) With the winner of this game going to the final, there was a lot at stake. The Lizards opened with a blitz on defense, and the Norse countered by having the dauntless player blocking the kroxigor and knocking himself out. With most players marked one to one the Kroxigor was able to tie up the +AG ball handler. For the next three turns the Krox would flatten the Norse-Elf who would stand up, dodge into the tackle zone, grab the ball and run away while the rest of the players hit each other. Eventually the Norse made a passing play and the pattern continued with a blodge skink instead of a kroxigor. The Norse managed to cross the line in turn 8. The Lizards scored quickly in turn 11 while the Norse tried to force a "score or lots of your players go in the crowd" situation which almost worked. For the final drive the Lizards used a card to gain some dwarven runes, but the skink who used them swiftly blew himself up. The Norse drove back down the field under duress from the lizards. but crucially took some both downs on some blocks and sealed the ball carrier in a bad position. The Norse brought a receiver into range to turn a 4+ pass into a 3+ pass (and naturally rolled a 6) meaning instead of being a square from a TD with a turn to go and only vulnerable to a single skink, they were blitzed by a kroxigor and the ball was quickly transferred the length of the field for Lizard victory and playoff berth! 2017-07-10 09:21:31 Match: The Great Northern Light (0) vs. Omnicide (1) Concession/Walk-over 2017-07-04 00:42:32 Match: Omnicide (1) vs. Ladies of Lust (1) Crazy game. In the first half the Khorne team utterly brutalized the Iron Ladies, who eventually had to run away and leave their half of the pitch to the Khorne team. Second half started no better, when the Khorne team Again landed a few dirty hits, leaving the Amazons at just 8 players. However, the girls knew that a loss here would cost them their championship game, and just as all seemed lost, the girls managed to slip through a pretty decent khornate defense. Lord Skulloz the Bloodthirster followed that up with a massive turnover, suddenly making that seemingly impossible TD very possible. And the, just when Things looked good, the AG4 amazon blitzer snaked a Dodge, leaving the ball carrier exposed. The Khorne players pounced, leaving just 2 Amazons for that final play - with the ball on the ground. And what a stellar play it was. TD! So, the Khorne players will be missing the finals. So will 4 Amazons. 2 nursing bruises. And 2 suffereing from a severe case of death. 2017-07-04 00:33:58
