ESPN Headline: "TPK! Norsemen inflict a Total Pitch Kill on the Companions in Crimson!"
Hogtown Fjord kicked arse and took names in a 3-0 wipe out of the Companions in Crimson.
Stigg Stuggmundson piled on the pain, while Lemmy Sigviddson took his lumps but still ran in no less than three touchdowns himself.
A paltry 16,000 fans at the 401 Games stadium were privy to a rare achievement late in the first half, as Hogtown Fjord knocked out or badly injured every single vampire and thrall, and cleared the pitch of all opposition. The Norsemen leisurely moved the ball uncontested from their 30-yard line in to score.
An even rarer feat followed thereafter, as an irate 'Spruce' Wayne tore the head off Lars Fodderson on the ensuring kick-off - the first casualty the vampires had caused since the Open League pre-season. For this kill, the vampires won a bounty of 100,000 gold from a mysterious, bloodthirsty patron.
In the post-match presser, Coach Duckula avoided talking about the result and instead spoke about the need for his vampires to be well-hydrated before a game.
"You can't step onto a pitch, then immediately get thirsty and crack open a tall one. Or a short one, or any-sized thrall standing nearby!"
"This team needs an injection of fresh blood. That's why I'm going to spend this bounty on a bounty of delicious, refreshing thralls. I expect to see a much improved team now that the Companions will have plenty to eat before the game."
For his part, Coach Rob Fjord said that his team gets more than enough to eat at home.
