It’s still very early in the year, but the Brew crew have separated from the pack after the first three weeks of play lead by co-league leading scorer Friday and Captain Tapper! Here’s the how the rest of the league fared:
Goals: Bonesaw (2), Shank (1); Take Outs: Ox (2), Shank (1), Boiler (1)
In a wild one the Butchers hung on to best the Morticians in the unlikely battle of two struggling teams so far this year. The Butchers paced the game with early take outs of Silence and Dirge thanks to Ox and Boiler, but Obulus found Bonesaw for two goals to even the score. Shank responded with a score thanks to another take out by Ox, on Silence again (because the midfielder kept Butcher players Shutout and Tucked most of the game). With a narrow lead Obulus siezed control of the moment; the Puppet Master had the ball passed to him by an unsuspecting player, after a few quick smacks on Tenderizer the Mortician Captain had a clear shot on the goal but alas despite a Bonus Time buffed opportunity it missed wide. The missed shot on goal left Boiler a chance to respond with a final takeout to end the game in victory for the Butchers!
|Goals: Velocity (2), Salvo (1)|
The surprising start to the season continues for the Engineers who jumped all over the Alchemists early thanks to unsuspecting strikes from Velocity and Salvo. In fact the only points the Alchemists put on the board were due to Rachet Overclocking Mainspring causing him to Overheat in an offensive play to damage the surrounding Alchemist players and buying time to create the last score by Velocity to put the game away. Tough start to the year for the Alchemists as they find themselves in a full fledged tail spin while the Engineers are one game off the early pace of the top team in the standings.
Goals: Flint (1); Take Outs: Chisel (1), Rage (1), Honour (1), Gutter (1), Brick (2), Blackheart (2),
The best contest of the week was this wild one between the Union and Masons, as they traded bloody take outs between Brick, Blackheart, and the rest of the crews in attempt to gain advantage. One missed opportunity by Mist left an opening for Flint to show why many think he is the best Striker in the game; taking a Pass and Move from Honour to score the decider and Run the Length! Union dropped their first match of the year and the Masons regain form after dropping a tough one in week two.
Goals: Shark (2), Friday (1); Take Outs: Friday (2), Stoker (1), Tapper (1)
Match of the week was this fast paced contest between the Brewers and Fish featuring the two league leading scorers in Friday and Shark. As one would suspect an early goal from Shark set the pace, but instead of trying to respond in kind Tapper had his team get physical and take out two Fisherman in the opening turn. With a level match starting the second round Shark seized the moment again and scored his second (and league leading) goal while simultaneously trying to choke out the game from the Brewers many of the opposing crew found themselves Caught In A Net. However not be deterred the Brewer game plan was firm, Tapper again lead the move to by physical with the light footed Fish and another take out despite the Legendary play kept the game close. With a momentum advantage to start turn 3, the Brewers seized control of the game, Friday picked on Angel, whom she found nothing charming about, and took her out for the second time in the game, tackled the ball and scored the game winner!
