2498 GAME REPORT: Week 1

Skelly Bobs 0 - 2 Gorechildren
15,000 rabid Bloodbowl fans turned up to watch a brutal game between the evil Undead and the equally evil Chaos teams. The Skelly Bobs won the toss and chose to kick off.

Early on vampire star player Count Luthor went toe to toe with Lord Borak and stunned him, only to be knocked out by Lord Borak in a dirty foul later in the game. Meanwhile the Gorechildren broke to the left with the ball and, with the aid of a magical thunderstorm, beastman number eight shrugged off a fingertip tackle from the undead ghoul and ran over for a Touchdown.

In the second half Count Luthor threw a perfect spiral, using an Eye of the Eagle spell scroll, to a waiting Wight. He was wiped out by a beastman, though, and the Chaos team drove down the left again, even as on the line of scrimmage a Chaos warrior was badly hurt and Lord Borak fouled the vampire again, knocking him out of the game. Beastman number seven carried the ball over the line in the final seconds to win the game for the Gorechildren 2-0.

The Bobs had the last laugh though, as they kidnapped their rival head coach and ransomed him for the game's winnings!

Moriar Crushers 2 - 0 Lorien Avengers
This elf versus dwarf grudge match ended almost before it began. When three elf lineman were badly hurt and one elf blitzer was seriously injured the elves conceded the match. The dwarves were awarded a 2-0 win.

Gutter Runners 3 - 1 Hexgate Slammers
This game between dark elves and skaven was typically vicious, and as the score racked up so did the casualties. The Slammers scored through Angelica Hewstone, but the skaven, helped by an interception, marched to a 3-1 victory, putting three of the Slammers in the apothecaries tent.

Middenheim Raiders 3 - 1 Hells Teef Rippas
In a controversial start to the game Griff Oberwald was laid low by a magic spell, while Morg 'n' Thorg was killed by Ike Goblinbaiter and his trusty stiletto blade. The Orcs regard for the rules of the game did not improve with time however, and three players were sent off. Going into half-time 1-0 up the Orcs were confident of a win. Griff had other ideas though, and set about single-handedly saving the game with a succession of outrageous and skillful plays.

At the end of the game the Orcs were bewildered, and at the wrong end of a 3-1 result.
