Queenstown Warriors 2- 2 Lucky Scales

HNN (Herpetological News Network) Sports Report

The Lucky Scales took on the Queenstown Warriors today in a pouring rain throughout. The rain hindered the agile elves throughout the day while the lizards seemed to enjoy it. The game started off with the Scales kicking off to the Elves who mishandled the ball in the rain. The elves recovered and Calfendrian scored despite a relentless defense. Munditeu-hi of the lizards was able to tie things up as time expired in the first half.

The second half kickoff went according to plan as the lizards muscled the ball up the center of the field. The persistent elves managed to knock the ball loose nearly destroying the drive but Uta of the Moon realized that the ball was something other than the other white meat and grabbed it as it bounced by. He followed this feat up by dodging away and scampering into the end zone to go up 2-1 Scales.

The ensuing kickoff was perfectly placed in the back of the end zone but the elves had by this time gotten acclimated to the rain and ran back, snagged the ball and tossed it down field. Nonetheless, everything seemed to go well as the lizard defense seemed ready to rise to the occasion as the ball carrier and all nearby elves were surrounded with only a turn to go. The lizard blitz caused the ball carrier to dump the ball off to Elii but due to some poor luck (and an inadvertent click not to use a reroll) the poor slob of a Saurus came crashing down leaving a small gap. This gap was used the next turn as a frenzied witch elf pushed a skink several squares before dodging away and scoring. The game ended as a 2-2 tie.
