Lone Wolves Challenge Cup 2010 Week 7 - Results

The competition is rapidly coming to an end, not soon enough for some teams.

Bearded Clams 2 - 0 Storner Stoneheads ( Attendance 26,000 )

A good crowd turned out for the Clams final game of the season against the hated rival Chaos Dwarfs, neither team was playing for anything but pride but the Clams were not going to sit down and be counted.
With the bright sunshine beaming down on the pitch, the Stoneheads received but after some crazy throwing attempts trying to get their star bull centaur on the run failed the Clams soon had the ball and made the big hatted dwarfs pay. 1-0 at half time.

The Clams received the ball at the start of the 2nd half and after a quick snap were able to push one centaur off the pitch and tie up the other. A slow progression down the pitch eventually saw the Clams go 2-0 up as the Chaos Dwarf team started to dwindle. Only a crazy last minute Chaos Dwarf dodge and blitz helped save the Clams from going 3-0 up in the dying minutes of the game.

With this win the Clams will probably finish 4th, the 1st time in 3 years Binx has not finished top of the table. Maybe humans again next year?
The Stoneheads remain 6th but with a win next week and a Orcland Raiderz loss could see them finish 5th.

Invaders 0 - 3 Coffin Dodgers (Attendance 24,000)

The most important game of the season saw the resurgent Invaders take on the unbeaten Dodgers, both teams needed a win knowing a loss would see them out of the final.

A brutal 1st half saw the Invaders do everything in their power to throw the game away, the ball was like a greased pig and would not remain in the beastmens furry palms. The Invaders on the other hand were loving it and after 8 1st half turns the Invaders led by an unassailable 2 TD's to 0.

The 2nd half started with some trickery, as the kick off landed the ball transmuted into 2 balls, causing mass confusion in the Chaos ranks. Not knowing which was the real ball the Chaos took both of them the length of the pitch only for them to be stolen by the Undead who promptly took one into the endzone to make it 3-0.

The Invaders loss meant that they would finish at least 3rd, an improvement on their 1st venture into Blood Bowl but not good enough for their coach who will no doubt be sacrificed to some god spawn type creature.

The Dodgers, progressed to the final, still unbeaten. Next week they face their nemesis the Chaos Dwarfs. One of the Dodgers Ghouls will miss the next match but has been reportedly been undergoing surgery to increase his strength to a mighty 4!

The final weeks match between the Invaders and Warpstone Wanderers has been awarded to the Chaos after the Skaven advised the league they would not be attending. All results have been added to the league.
