"Bob, I'm on a scarlet stained field here at 401 Stadium at what the analysts are already calling another "Slaughter for the Blotter". The Companions in Crimson came out energetically and drew first blood, putting down "Bootsy" Ivarrson early in the first half. This seemed to rouse the Fjord from their hangovers and they began to act like they came to play. Mr. Hugs quickly killed a thrall outright in retaliation. Thrall Holyfield tried to slip the boot to Sting Stuggmundson but the Ref caught the move and quickly ejected him and the Companion's coach in the ensuing chaos. Stigg jumped to his feet and laid the slay down on another thrall leaving little for team medics to work with. Lemmy controlled the ball well for the half but in the end got too cocky in his showboating and was stripped of the ball in the final moments. Not even a little magic item could help the Fjord's passing game though and the half ended scoreless.
It's unclear, Bob, what was said by either coach in the locker room during half time but both teams came out hungry for blood. Unfortunately for the Companions this was a literal hunger for blood and the vampires spent the first few moments of the second snacking on thralls or ducking out to the sideline for a splash. When the vampire's did try to get a play going, the field was so slick with blood, they'd slip and slide on their own dodges, frequently injuring themselves. The Fjord capitalized on this opportunity, Stigg quickly killing another vampire distracted by thirst, but the Companions in Crimson apothecary was able to stitch him up and get him back in the game with little damage. The Fjord onslaught continued, with a journeyman seriously injuring another thrall and culminating in the Norse Yeti's first kill, rising Companions in Crimson star "Spruce" Wayne. The Yeti's massive claw had sheared the vampire's head clean off and regeneration proved impossible. Lemmy drove the ball in late in the second half.
The vampires attempted a last minute rally, tossing the ball ably around the pitch, but couldn't muster a rally.
Fair to say this is a match neither team will soon forget, nor the groundskeepers who will have to try to get the blood off the pitch before the next match. Back to you, Bob"
