MD4 : VS. Zulu501 Amazones (Sugar_n_Spice)
Matchup looks pretty tough : no tackle skill for me, 4 blodgers and 2 guard to face. Deeply counting on my Troll tentacles and some lucky block rolls...
The zones start to attack, but the creepy squad have none of it (some scandalmongers would say they ran before the first whistle blow) and penetrate into the opponent pitch side.
But the amazones don't really matter about it and easily repel those cheaters.
Nevertheless, one forgotten gob keep sticking the ball carrier, slowing down the 'zones progress.
After bypassing the ad hoc UW los, composed by a lazy Troll and few goblins busy to foul a Blitzer who had the kindness to fall down, the bikini warriors looks more aggressive. They stick to my players, stamping to death my guard skaven lineman on their way ..... but my apothecary brought him back to life (smells like black magic) and the murderer is sent-off by the referee. Scared by this savagery deed as much as this evil ritual, my players dodged back, trying to save the most time they can.
Finally, the amazones can't score at T8 and I attempt to block the ball carrier, without success. End of first half, 0-0.
It is my turn to attack now. I am now 11 players to 10, with the optimistic ambition to widen this gap. The ball goes kicked in the air... and the amazones immediately rush before my players can move, pressuring all my los. They even find a way between my formation to set a catcher below the ball fallout, but there is too many players around and she didn't. After some blocks, I succeed to pick the ball up and take away from the battle area. But it is a huge mess, the 'zones compacting my players to make possible blitz actions on my ball carrier. I lose the ball, quickly picked up by a goblin and I set off a move to finally quit my half side. But he get nastily blitzed by behind and injured.
A new fight for the ball control begins. Meanwhile, a goblin stand out ; dodging away from amazons blocks, he strolls, fouling in his path. He didn't know at this moment he will probably be the gob for the job. After some bounces, the ball is picked up by an amazone thrower but still next to a gob. He pushes her next to the touchline, and she finishes in the middle of the crowd, punching her to KO. In the fray, a spectator confuses his initial target and the ball, sending that one right in the middle of the 'zones pitch. A Premature Scamp, the fouling genius, seize the opportunity and after dodging, pick the ball away and run as far as he can. A blitzer tries to catch this silly gob, but no... he gets away and score!! 1-0 to UW.
The 'zones are reduced to 8 players and have 4 turns to score. But, guess what?... Another blitz event! The invasion is quick, 27,4 Pounds Baby killing a linewoman by the way. The amazones fail to pick up the ball, then my skaven thrower. The ball is finally caught by a catcher who starts to run away. But the timer is close to the end, and the amazones can only make a TD possible by a pass... which failed. The ball is recovered by my thrower and gave to my killer blitzer who run across the TD line! End score 2-0.
No Burping Baby get a level up, I took him Leader (finally a third reroll)!
27,4 Pounds Baby get a level up too, I took him MB as my team needs to hit harder.
Next match, I will face a chaos team with a block goat and an AG4 other one. I will have some inducements as my guard lineman had to take one week to regain his composure after being back among the living.
I have now 150k gold in the bank, as I'll have 12 players for the next match, I think I can conserve it for the stadium upgrades (I need the Enefel shrine asap).
