As a good example of how nuts this game was, every single kick-off roll was a Blitz! result.
Rex was clearly missing his kennel buddy, Fido (who was MNG for this game) as he had a shocker of a game, at one point making a 6+ dodge to get the ball carrier, before rolling a skull for the hit.
The first touchdown was against the run of play, an early Blitz and failed pick-up meant the Buccaneers were able to flood the Departed's back field and put some pressure on the ball, before scoring.
As expected, the Buccaneers took a hell of a beating, though the first few casualties were actually Departed players, though they all passed their Regeneration rolls.
The equaliser was a typical Swinyard-esque Hollywood play, involving a pick-up, hand-off, short pass into the endzone, meaning the teams went in tied at half-time. The Dark Elves were a player down by this point (meaning the Necromantic were a player UP, having raised Hlorral Nilvlen back from the dead).
The second-half saw several more Dark Elves head to the dead and injured box, which meant overtime would be a struggle, if it got to that. A few more trips and falls from Rex meant the Buccaneers were able to get to a 2+ dodge (with Dodge) to score which, to the cameras' disappointment, Blitzer Nilvel made on the first roll.
The Buccaneers face a depleted Scumbags side next, but there will be a few new (journeyman) faces in the squad, given the pasting this win cost them...
