The Blockers By Choice remain undefeated in this group, after playing the very inept Tree Huggers. Strength was on the side of the dwarves, and agility obviously not with the Elves who missed most of their dodges. The game started fairly classically, with the Elves receiving the ball and the dwarves bashing them, scaring (and scarring) them to force them to score in the third turn. Then, the grinding machine started. By the end of the first half, when the Blockers scored their first touch down, three elves had been sent to the infirmary, including a Wardancer with a smashed collar bone and the Catcher with a damaged back, while the other Wardancer had managed to KO himself.
No amount of Bloodweiser could bring the Wardancer back, so the elves started the second half with a team of 6 linemen and a tree vs a full team of dwarves. Two of the linemen were quickly KO'd, and the rest of the team, apart from the rooted tree, spent their time wriggling in pain on the ground or emulating Sir Robin. By the end of the drive, a third lino had been badly hurt.
Hope was low for the few remaining elves, and thing got worst when they got blitzed by the dwarves. Yet, the dwarves didn't manage to do more significant damage, and the elves had a little time to play ball before having to admit defeat, for the tenth time in a row.
Congratulations to the Blockers By Choice for finishing first of the group.
