|The Round 5 Game between the “Blood Bay Maple Leaves” and “The Stomp” was awaited with baited breath by both coaches and fans alike. I’m sure that the Elves were hoping that the Orc’s just held their breath instead.|
The Day started off with fine weather but as the kick off drew close the heavens opened up and the rain came down in buckets.
Even with this draw back the Elves won the toss and elected to receive. With their supreme elegance, once gaining the ball the flanking players streamed down the field, while their poor brothers in the line of scrimmage had to deal with a cranky Troll and a couple of brutish Black Orc’s. Once again The Stomp lacked any ability to do any serious damage to any of the Elves. The Elves were looking for a quick score and thought that they had found an opening. Even in the rain the pass was perfect but the Receiver was unable to brake though and back tracked. He attempted to pass to an open player but the ball was intercepted by Stuffem, a Black Orc.
With the ball in the Orc’s hands they attempted to get into their scoring half but were not able to get past the half way line. The Elves defenders ran rings around them but were unable to strip the ball from The Stomp players. During this half The Troll spent a large portion of the half just picking its nose and watch the little dancing thingies that ran around him. 2 casualties were rendered though, one by the wayward Troll and the other by one of the Blitzer’s. (The Dice ran hot and cold for this half…)
With the coming of the second half the weather cleared and the Orc’s were to receive the ball. “The Stomp” knew that the “Blood Bay Maple Leaves” were too quick for them. So they tried to grind them into the ground, with only a modicum of success. With some luck and a fair amount of time the Orc cage had made its way through the Elves line and left them pummeled. Tonk strolled in the Touchdown with only two turns left for the Elves.
On receiving the Ball the “Blood Bay Maple Leaves” players didn’t give up the Orc’s stopped one side of the field though. But 2 Elves made it close to their scoring end but were held up and unable to get the ball to the player that had the best chance of scoring.
