Artful Dodgers came out blazing with a double blitz in the first seconds, to recapture their own kick-off. Hashut did well to recover, with Stonehammer making the covering save and Cinderaxe moving the ball slowly upfield. The Dodgers tightened their grip however, surrounding the ball carrier and forcing the ball lose several times. In the final moments of the half, Hashut were hanging on desperately to keep things level at halftime and fully exhaustied their coaching options. With 5 Dodgers around the ball, it bobbled lose once again - only to fall miraculously to Stonehammer who took the catch in two the shadow of two Dodgers defenders, before breaking a tackle and storming away for an unlikely score. 1-0 Hashut, and the only time the Chaos Dwarves would cross halfway.
Added MVP and 50k winnings, for training and promotional work during the bye week.
The Dodgers began the second half equally purposefully, though still buzzing from their misfortune. With Hashut setting a stalwart defence, a blaze of Elf rage ensued as they sought to bully Hashut off the field. Seyveril was clearly out for blood, and attempted to foul the heroic Stormhammer!
Needless to note that Chaos Dwarves are not easily pushed around, and within moments of Seyveril being sent from the field the Dodgers were 4 players down. Pressing hard, they were not able to secure the equaliser against the clinical Hashut, and now await an anxious countback to see if their playoff hopes are still alive.
