"BENGALS BLOODIED BUT SCROWERS STYMIED!"
Blood Bowl lived up to its name in a brutal mid-week fixture that featured injuries and touchdowns aplenty. Literal slip-ups from the Bengal Runners left the ball unprotected early in the half, and the Scrowers' Baskeet "The Hound" snuck in and scooped it up to score a defensive touchdown. The Bengals' Tryg Magnisson scored in the following drive, and the half ended 1-1.
In the 2nd half, "Killer" Culverton tore into the beleaguered Bengals to rack up a league-leading 11 casualties, while Baskeet took advantage to score a second touchdown. Looking at a 2-1 deficit and with time running out, things looked grim for the doughty Dwarfs, but the Scrowers ill-discipline got the better of them. The Scrowers' Troll "Unholy" Pete was left without a minder and started picking dandelions at a crucial moment, allowing the Bengals to grab an unprotected ball and, in a daring hand-off play that would make the Elfheim Eagles blush, run the ball in to score and keep their playoff hopes alive. Jarek Brokkisson III was hailed as the MVP, while the Scrowers were booed off the pitch by their fans, many swearing never to support the team again, for letting an elusive victory slip away.
