Mbbl Round 3

Now dont get confused the Orcs are going to the left, I just turn my players around so I know they have moved. And Yes the Troll does have the ball and heading for the TD........

These last 3 pic's are from the last couple of turns before the end of the match.  My Thrower has the ball and looks very vulnerable with the Centaur.

Match Report:
The game between the “Hashut Horders” and “The Stomp” was always going to be an interesting game.  And it didn’t disappoint.  With a large turnout for the game of 32,000 fans and with fantastic weather for the game they were remarkably well behaved for once.

The Chaos Dwarves won the toss and elected to kick.  I’m sure hoping to get a quick turn over.   In a remarkable turn of events the ball landed in the line of scrimmage and was caught by Gnarl the Troll. A bit befuddled with what to do with it apart from using as a weapon his team mates tried to point him in the right direction.  The Chaos Dwarves formed a formidable line and was unbreakable for the first quarter.  The Dwarves were able to knock the Orc’s about a bit but their fallen bodies got in the road of any true breaks in the Orc’s cage.   Late in the 2nd quarter the line was broken and Gnarl trotted for the open back field and ran it in for the TD just before the half time break.  But with one last drive before the half the Dwarves almost pulled off a 1 turn TD with the help of a quick snap, bad field placement by the Orc’s, only a fumble by the Centaur stopped them from running into the end zone and scoring.

The second half was were the Horders regrouped to receive the ball and pushed The Stomp players around and made a break down the wing.  Yurg the Lineman had a chance to tackle the hobgoblin ball carrier Dandelion but fell flat on his face.  Dandelion strolled in for a 2 turn TD.

 The Stomps received the next kick and hoped to create a cage, but once again the Horders went straight for the ball carrier.  Things looked bad but Tonk the ball carrier was able to keep his feet as Daisy Hater the Centaur went for him.   With the Horders converging on the Stomps thrower, Wranngah the Blitzer was able to find some space after a Black orc placed his opponent in to the crowd of screaming fans.  Tonk wasn’t able to throw directly to any player but aimed for space so Wrannagh could run on to it.  The Horders where out of position and with some very unlucky roll’s wasn’t able to get near the Blitzer who ran it into the end zone and scored just as the game came to a close.

The Stomps fans praised Gork for the win and the Hashuts Hoarders looked to their gods in disbelief.  Nuffle truly had a hand in this game.

MBBL Round 2

Match Notes:
The Crowd was expecting a lot of biffo in the game between "The Stomp" and "Sultans of Sth'ss Tor". Two Large and powerful teams.

Both teams put up a tough defense which did make it difficult for the smaller players on both team to squeeze through. The Sultans skinks were hard to put down even for one of the Stomps Black Orcs who rolled Double skulls twice. That and a rampaging Korxigor opened a sizable hole for a light footed skink late in the the first half to hand off the Sultans Journey man skink for the one and only TD for the game.

The Second half The Crowd grew restless and an unknown assailant took out a Saurus.(Police description mentioned he was green skinned and heavily muscled. But this could have been a supporter from either team.)

The Stomp tried to capitalise on the numerical advantage and looked like they were going to equelise but a fumbled catch stopped them from scoring. The ensuing scramble for the ball and who was carrying it ground down both team but ended really any chance for the Orc’s to equalise.

A win for the "Sultans of Sth'ss Tor".
A 1 - Nil win to the Sultans.  I would have been happy with the draw though.  I'm starting to think I might be a jinx to my teams that I play with apart from my Dwarfs.
