The Knuckle Heads (Ogr, X_kot) 0 - 2 Rock Paper Supper (Hal, Zoraster)
The game was a bloody one, with no KOs, seven injuries, and one death. Three ogres were felled by zealous plant life, one of whom suffered a detrimental gash to his left ankle (the doc offered to replace the defective joint with the right foot, but he failed to understand why this was not helpful). The Supper crew ran a strong offense, taking advantage of the Knucklers' inability to hit anything successfully in the first half. A deft running game provided the halflings with a 1 - 0 lead going into the second half; the only gloomy note was the unfortunate passing of hired star player Zara the Slayer, whose skull was caved in by a pack of snotlings.
The second half saw the Knucklers pull back from the scrimmage line in an attempt to draw the halflings in. Progress was tentative, and a blitz on the ball carrier almost saw the end of the ogres' hopes. However, defying the odds, a successful pick up, hand off, and throw maneuver (a play dubbed "The Green Dream") saw a hopeful snot a mere dash from the end zone. However, the canny Suppers responded in kind, and a blitz ended any chances of equalizing the score. One final TTM in the closing minutes secured RPS a solid 2 - 0 win.
Zoraster was a charm to play against, even as he dismantled my team. A good game that could have ended any number of ways. Sadly, I must hang up my manager's jacket after this season due to time constraints, but this was a fine way to go. I'll be watching the division from the sidelines, though, so keep those entertaining game reports coming!
