KUBBL 5 - Week 3: The Devastators get Devastated.

Actually got in two games this week as I have a bit of catch-up play to do. This week's game was against Coach T Rex and the Detroit Devastators. It was the first time we have played together and I was really looking forward to going up against this team. I have a hit or miss record against Human teams and with massive inducements for Coach T Rex it really could have been anyone's game. The KRB gameplan going in? First eliminate the Ogre, then work our way through the Strip Ball and Guarding pieces until we only have a few others to crush. Here is the KRB going into the match:

Rolled doubles for Maim Fist'r after the win against the Lads. Initially thought about going for Dodge to make him a truly obnoxious force but with him being a league casualty leader I felt Jump Up would be better for his next skill of Pile On. So that's what I did!

Detroit Devastators kicked off to Khorne R'Backs to start the game, feeling confident in their Wizard, tons of rerolls, multiple Apothecaries, and Bloodweiser Babes on the sideline. The kick landed in the corner after nearly bouncing out of bounds but was quickly scooped up by Bitescum for a pass to the Sure Hands of Gorefoul. Caging up the Khorne R'Backs came out of the gates swinging, dealing a few badly hurts right away and immediately knocking several players into the KO box (including rookie Ogre Doc Savage  “Titan” ). While waiting as long as they could in an attempt to bait the Detroit Devastators Wizard into attacking the Khorne R'Backs finally scored on turn 7 of the first half to go up 1-0.

Detroit Devastators took the ball back and made a quick pass for SPP before calling it a half.

Khorne R'Backs then kicked to Detroit Devastators who performed a nice hook and ladder play in an attempt to break away from the sheer killing madness the Khorne R'Backs were bringing to bear against them. A drunken Wizard fizzled his spell but this did not dissuade the peppy Stretch Johnson as he made a long pass out of traffic and to his chosen receiver down field. It might have worked too if not for the nimble reflexes of Spittleslash who snatched the ball out of the air as it was sailing to an open Catcher in the Khorne R'Backs backfield. With this the Khorne R'Backs were able to regain control of ball and possession of the pitch, spending round after round trying to tear apart the Detroit Devastators before finally scoring on turn 8 of the second half.
