BloodBowl Match Blackmountain Bloodjaws vs Valhalla Vixens
This match saw my Orcs square up Nics Norse in the Final of our wargames clubs BloodBowl League Cup - The Vase.
It had been a hard slog playing though the cup matches as well as the league and throughout it had thrown up some unexpected results. So it came down to both these teams vying for the honour of the Vase. The weather was nice (for a change) and the Vixens had a slight advantage in the screaming horde of fans in the stands. The Orcs kick off, with the ball landing right next to the line of scrimmage on the Vixen's side.. The Norse start their drive and the Snow troll blitzes a Black Orc and KO's him.
The Vixens Thrower goes for it to collect the ball but trips over his shoelaces and falls on the ball. The Bloodjaws consolidate their line and collect the loose ball. The Snow Troll goes on a rampage and after crunching the ball carrier the Vixens control the ball and pass it downfield resulting in a TOUCHDOWN 0-1.
The teams set up again and the Vixens kick and BLITZ!!! it comes to nothing though and the Orcs steam forward with a Black Orc killing a Vixen Lineman with a block, but the Orc Thrower cant gain the ball even with Sure Hands. A Norse Runner Jumps Up and Blitzes down the line and eventually with a Go For It gets the ball and scores again TOUCHDOWN 0-2. The Orcs are reeling and its not even half time yet.
The Norse kick to the Orcs again and the Bloodjaws cry Waaagh storming forward and causing a few CAS finally driving into the endzone at the end of the half to score TOUCHDOWN 1-2.
Second half and the Norse are down a few players. The Orcs start well and gain the ball as well as causing a few more CAS including a death!! with Vixen players being dragged off the pitch, its wide open for a Bloodjaws Blitzer to sprint in to score TOUCHDOWN 2-2. The Vixens set up and receive the kick. They try hard moving the ball around and keeping it away from the Orcs but finally the Bloodjaws numbers start to tell and and the balls falls into their possession. The Orc Thrower pumps a long pass downfield into the waiting hands of a Blitzer and the Bloodjaws score TOUCHDOWN 3-2.
