The noise of the cheering and stomping fans was nearly unbearably loud, as the crowds filled the sold-out Meeplemart stadium. In their final match of the season, the Skullcrushers and the Rotskins met to determine the division champion, and expectations were high.
As it turned out, the fans would not be disappointed. The Chaos Chosen had won the toin coss and decided to kick. Riverdale decided to make it count, and with the first block of the game, Lolo Lovebear badly hurt a beastman. Terry "Tickleme" Tongueface aimed to follow in his steps, but instead rolled a triple skull - and knocked himself out in the process. The game remained exquisitly violent, with two more Skullcrushers getting knocked out and Skullabalaktus the Untamed injuring a pestigor. Just to be seriously injured himself by hired gun Lord Borak the Despoiler, who added a second niggling injury to the minotaur. With time slowly running out, ball carrier Bobby Bellychick was forced to dodge away from the Chaos warrior threat, but managed to stay on his feet and score at the end of the half.
Second half started as exciting as the first half had ended, with a drunken dwarf throwing his empty beer keg on the pitch, nearly knocking out Zebulon, the strength 6 chaos warrior. A blitz on Lord Borak, who was guarding the sideline, left him standing on his feet, unimpressed by the Chaos onslaught. Bobby Bellychick did not let this opportunity pass, counterblitzing and killing his target, while chainpushing another Skullcrusher into the crowd. Borak finished the turn by catapulting one more opponent into the fans. Down to five players, all hopes were on Blood Frenzy, the strength- and agility-boosted dodging beastman carrying the ball. Who also fell victim to a blitz by Borak, but was able to get back to his feet and pickup the ball. Left with no backup, his escape run was finally stopped by Bobby Bellychick, who - in top form and true MVP of the match - later managed to pick up the ball and pass it to Ferdinand Foulhoof who scored in the the last seconds of the match for the final 2-0.
