Nagend Zweifel Freiman last met Hashut Helles Raisers 15 months ago, with the latter triumphing 2-1 on that occassion.
While fans savouring the long-over-due rematch, both sides entered the match with injuries. The Skaven outfit likely had the better of the build-up losing one Gutter Runner, the inestimable Brain. The Chaos Dwarves for their part started down 2 players with key Blitzer and Line positions vacant due to a tough match last month against the Booyaa Tribe. Bridging the divide and flooding their bench, the Hashut coach elected to call upon veteran Hoblin players Rashnak Backstabber and Zuvtik Shadowmouth for the match. The teams lined up 15 on 14, with Lemmywinks and Remy eagerly sharpening their claws in anticipation.
It was really sunny day, and a few overzealous fans invaded the pitch at the kick-off. Astonishingly ZERO players were harmed. After the brief delay Hashut worked the ball upfield for a regulation score. Defending well, they then placed a well planned short kick. Unfortunately, Nagende were equal to the task with Pinky scoring in a single play to close the half. 1-1.
Second half was eventful. As the weather cleared, Hashut applied early pressure forcing Nagende wide. Pinky found himself cornered this time by Iskdug Leadnail, who forced the ball free and into the crowd. The crowd obliged by throwing the ball across the pitch with it bouncing into the Hashut end zone. Felvel moved for the pick-up on the subsequent play, with no Hashut players in reach, and after briefly bobbling the ball scored.
That's how the game ended, though Doruak Cinderaxe came close to delivering a long bomb to tie up the game in the final play of the game. Off the ball, Rashnak Backstabber got the better of the opposing Rat Ogre, Carlo, slicing into his tail. Though badly hurt he'll return next week, much to the relief of the Nagende coaching staff.
Final score: 2-1 to Nagende.
