The third game of the Blood Paladins season was an away game at the Nobles of Pig Hill. Although there was a gulf in the players skills, the fans packed in to the stadium - 28,000 of them! This was, in part, due to the fact that no less than three stars of the game had turned up to play.
Morg'N'Thorg and Prince Moranion had agreed to play for the Nobles, whilst Wilhelm Chaney decided to play for the Paladins. This was indeed going to be a game of three's...
The Vampires received the kick and on the ensuing drive scored quickly, a surprising burst of speed leading to the TD.
Not to be out done, the High Elves responded quickly and the scores were soon level. More passing shenanigans later, and the Elves found themselves in the lead. The Paladins needed a quick reply, and the spur for this was when Morg was knocked down by Chaney. Seeing the opportunity to put the boot in, the Paladins surrounded the prone star. Geraldine Tuscany ran in and launched herself up in to the air and then drove her knee down right on to Morgs' neck. There was a sickening crack and the big man had to be carted from the field. He would play no further part in this match. A second score for the Paladins ensued.
The second half saw a slight decline in scoring, with the High Elves once again taking the lead. Trying to get the ball back, the Paladins desperately sought to get into position to make the fumble from the High Elves count. Prince Moranion fell foul of Chaney, being well and truly knocked out. He would go onto stay unconscious for the rest of the half. Time was running out for the Paladins though, and desperate times called for desperate measures. Isabella Lebreton sprang up from her prone position and ran into the end zone. This was going to be the last action in the half, as the pass came in and was caught to tie.
3 - 3 is how it finished, with more touchdowns and less blood than expected.
