Da Leeg Blood Bowl XII Final

Postby DaImp » Mon Apr 24, 2017 5:36 pm

Good evening sports fans. You join us this evening for the Blood Bowl XII Final between the High Elf Whitepeak Eagles and the Orcs of the New Orc Giantz. The Giantz are unbeaten this season, having played a smart series of games to qualify for the play-offs with minimal effort, while the Eagles are the leagues top scorers playing an expansive passing game thats sure to thrill the crowd. I think we are in for a tight game this evening.

The trophy has been polished up for the final and is presented on the sidelines for both teams to see what they are playing for.
Image
The Eagles win the coin toss and elect to receive the kick. No doubt looking to put an early score on the board and settle some nerves. The weather tonight is perfect as is befitting a big final.
Theres the kick and the Eagles scoop up the ball and are immediately on attack. They break through the Giantz defense and are set for a pass to score the opening TD. But the pass is fumbled!
Image
No a great start for the High Elves, but they have provided enough protection around the ball that the Orcs are unable to get close to it. This gives the Eagles a chance to make up for their early fumble, the ball is reclaimed and the pass flies deep into the endzone for the fist TD of the final! 1-0 Eagles
Image
Theres plenty of time for the Giantz to respond here. They collect the kick and press up on the left wing. The Eagles manage to stall their attack and look set to sack the ball carrier but the blitzing player trips up and the Orcs are let off the hook. They must surely break free now, but NO! Despite having all the assists he needs, an Orc makes a mess of his block and is floored by an Elf. It's a mess on the left wing , but the Orcs still have the upper hand - just.
Image
They look sure to make the Eagles pay for some poor defending now as an Orc Blitzer breaks free, but he is brought down just short of the endzone.
Image
The Eagles are still showing nerves though and can't cover the ball to put enough pressure on the Giantz. Its an easy task for the Orcs to clear the Elves off the ball and scoop it up to run in the equaliser! Thats the end of the half and we are locked up at 1-1.
Image

The Eagles coach seems to be having some strong words with the referees at half time. She is gesticulating to the Orc fans who have shoved right up tight on the sidelines and have been harassing any Elf that comes too close. The ref seems uninterested in her complaints however and the fans are not asked to move back.
Image

The second half kicks off with the Eagles taking advantage of a pitch invasion from the fans - it seems the Elf fans have taken offence to the Orcs getting too close to the pitch and half the stadium pours onto the pitch, leaving half the New Orc Giantz flat on their faces. The Eagles waste no time in flooding through the gaps to put pressure on the ball. The Orcs can do very little to avoid having their thrower getting sacked and the Elves break free with the ball. Just one square short of scoring!
Image
Touchdown to the Eagles! That puts them into a 2-1 lead with 5 turns left to play. Will that be enough time for the Giantz to get back into this game or is that a killer blow?
The kickoff is fluffed by the elves as they put it straight into touch and it's a touchback to the Orcs. The Giantz are not hanging about here and break through the Elves defence with alarming ease. The Eagles are looking to contain the Orcs and run the clock down but they are being overwhelmed. The Giantz burst free to score and tie game up at 2-2.
Image
Was that a mistake by the Giantz to score too soon? The Eagles now have 2 turns to try score the winner.
The Eagles collect the ball from the kickoff and set up a match winning pass... only it should have been match winning, but thrower Iragel Farseer fumbles the ball (double 1) to send the final into overtime!
Image

The fans are getting even more restless here and a riot has delayed the start of overtime, costing the Giantz a precious turn. The collect the ball again after another Eagles kick goes out of touch! The Elven kicking game is not on target tonight. The Orcs press forward again in their seemingly unstoppable fashion and are soon deep into the Eagles half.
Image
The Giantz are just a dodge away from scoring in overtime BUT the dodge fails and the first half ends without score! Thats a tough break for the Giantz who really needed that touchdown.
Image
The Eagles now get the ball back from the kick and are setting up their signature play. They flood the Giantz half of the pitch with players, all in range of scoring. It leaves thrower Iragel Farseer a little unprotected and she is put under pressure by a Lineorc.
Image
The Eagles though are irresistible now on attack and Iragel Farseer does what she does best: avoids a tackler to launch a perfect long pass down field to a waiting catcher...
Image
IT'S CAUGHT!
Image
The catcher spins free of her marker and runs in to score the winning TD! It's a 3-2 win in the finals for the Eagles!
Image

What an epic final that was, the Whitepeak Eagles claim the Blood Bowl trophy to become the first High Elf team to win the title.
