Thursday Night Blood Bowl Week 3 Recap

Hello fans and blood bowlers and welcome to special Tuesday recap of a special Monday Edition of Cabal TV Presents Nuffle Be Praised Presenting Thursday Night Blood Bowl! Our week three match features Coach Nollix's Aztecs vs Coach Silaninil's World Wide Webz!

Who will prevail in the match of lizard and dark elf? A clash of skink and steel! Let's get straight down to the action!

World Wide Webz was set to receive the ball in the first half. Nollix positioned his lizards very aggressively hoping to strike quick with injury and give the Aztecs the numbers advantage.

Unfortunately when you position your players aggressively you run the risk of leaving your secondary wide open, which is what happened as the Webz raced down the field into scoring position.

After some tough block dice for The Aztecs, The Webs took advantage of the field and were in prime position to put up the first touchdown of the game. After a key block and pass Malis scored the first touchdown of the match.

After the kick off the Aztecs once again found themselves in a tough spot. Due to continued unfavorable block dice and a shortage of rerolls it wasn't long before the forces of World Wide Webz were bearing down on the lizards. Taking advantage of the free bribe that both coaches received, The World Wide Webz fouled a prone Saurus removing him from the pitch with a knockout.

Sensing that the dark elf forces were bearing down, The Aztecs attempted a skink pass as a sort of downfield punt to prevent the quick scoop and score. Try as they might though, their stunty little arms make them poor downfield throwers, or lateral throwers, or any kind of throwers at all really.

After some quick moves and more successful block dice Istis scooped up the ball and put it in the end zone giving the World Wide Webs a commanding 2 touchdown lead.

After the kick, the Aztecs had one turn to try and put as many elves out of commission before the start of the second half. In order for that plan to be a success the Aztecs would need to count on their star kroxigor to come through in the (alligator) clutch.

After failing to do any damage to end the half The Aztecs needed a quick score to get back in contention and hope for at least a tie if not an unlikely victory. Pulling back the aggression the Aztecs focused on protecting the ball en-route to scoring a touchdown and making it a 2 to 1 game.

After the Aztecs finally got on the board, the Webz received the ball and set about scoring again to make it a 3 to 1 game. The Aztecs weren't going to go down so easily though, fighting to the last man and setting up many obstacles to hopefully prevent the turn 16 score. Showing once again that they had Nuffle's Blessing for this game The World Wide Webz executed a series of improbable moves to set up the turn 16 touchdown and the 3 to 1 victory!
