Yet another failure for the Tree Huggers, who are keen to preserve their title of "Worst team in the tournament", but with style.
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.
