With much fanfare ahead of the match, Hashut Helles Raisers once again called on the services of Grashnak Blackhoof for their match against the Orcoholics this week.
The greenskins elected to receive, but their play was well anticipated by Hashut with the perfect defence led by Blackhoof. Hashut could not force the turnover however, and the Orcoholics releaved the pressure wheeling away towards the centre of the pitch. Blackhoof would have none of it, and pressured the Orcs into a key turnover late in the half. Much to the frustration of the Chaos Dwarf coach, he then proceeded to try and pick up the loose ball. It proved too much and scattered into the crowd, who heaved it across the pitch. Orcoholics recovered through Bringo Star for the score.
As the rain began to fall heavily in the second half, the match descended into a slug fest in the mud, with Hashut gaining the ascendancy late in numbers but struggling to keep possession. Late in the half, Blackhoof was again in the action blitzing an orc lineman onto the ball, and the ball into a solitary tacklezone. He motioned to pick it up (again), but this time Doruak Cinderaxe was on hand to collect it with a cool head, and dodged away up field. With reduced numbers opposing him, he was unstoppable.
As the Orcoholic's own Goblin savant Uwu Zela prepared for the improbable winner, Hashut launched a deep defensive kick. It looked enough, but the fans wanted to see more! In the ensuing riot, the orcs bought a little time. They used it to good effect, not to get the ball, but to beat down Blackhoof - Uwu applying his boot to good effect smashing the big guy's collarbone. Fortunately, the apothecary was on hand to heal the wound, as both teams were booed off the pitch.
Tough crowd. Final score 1-1.
MVPs went to Duruak Cinderaxe and Hurgan Ungemut. Both big guys were outstanding, with Blackhoof overcoming his loner nature for the good of the team, on three occassions. Hermes Phettberg was equally unflappable putting in a flawless performance in the heavy hitting, but ultimately pointless match.
