In the opening week of the Dark Omen Guild Ball League we saw the stars rise to the top, and an exciting start to the season. Here are the box scores and summaries:
|Goals: Mist (1); Take Outs: Gutter (4), Ox (3), Shank (1)|
In the most exciting (and bloodiest) contest of the week, the Butchers and Union traded 8 take outs before it was all said and done! Gutter had his team out to an early lead with two quick take outs, before Ox evened the tally by taking out Rage and the opposing captain Blackheart. However after Meathook failed to take out Mist, this left her free to score. On the following turn Blackheart returned to the pitch to take out Boiler, just before he was taken out by Ox a second time, then Gutter closed the game by taking out Meathook; nobody left this one unscathed.
Goals: Jac (1), Shark (1), Colossus (1), Hoist (1), Take Outs: Kraken (1), Gutter (1), Ballista (1)
The Engineers win in a stunner in the opening week, as they mounted a comeback after being down to two early scores by Jac and Shark. The the Engineers responded by putting a flurry of shots on goal with Hoist and Colossus connecting to even the tally before Ballista took out Salt to win the game.
|Goals: Friday (2), Tapper (1), Obulus (1), Bonesaw (1)|
In an unexpectedly mild contest this one was a defensive struggle that ended in rapid exchange of goals in the last five minutes of the game where Friday took over scoring two of the games goals over the final few moments to end the contest in victory for the Brewers.
Goals: Midas (2), Flint (1), Mallet (1), Tower (1); Take Outs: Honour (1)
Masons put on a team effort with three different players scoring goals, in stark contrast to the one man show that was the Alchemists lead by Midas. Flint had his team out to an early lead with a goal, Midas responded by taking the rock down to the opposing goal but missed on the opportunity. Tower took advantage of the miss by giving his team an 8-0 lead on the follow up score. Calculous took the goal kick but was quickly taken out by Honour; however Midas was not going down with out a fight. He redeemed himself by taking the pig bladder from one end to the other and scoring, then stealing the ball on the opening possession of the next turn to bring his team within 2 and and within a goal of winning. However the comeback fell short when Compound lost the ball to Mallet who went on to score the game winner.
