Failed dodges, catches, pick-ups, GFIs, passes and blocks were the orders of the day in this match, where both sides tried their best to lose it. The visitors scored first, after forcing the elven blitzer with the ball off the pitch in turn five. After a fumbled pass, and a fumbled pick-up, it was the high elven blitzer IS-2 managing to force her way clear, then race away. With her elven counterpart tripping over trying to get to her, she managed to go the extra yards and open the scoring right at the end of the half.
It was the high elven linewomen who then let the side down at the start of the second. Some poor blocking left the high elven thrower exposed, and despite ignoring the easier route, and stuffing up the slightly harder option, they still managed to score on turn four to even things up. The high elves responded with a determined drive down the right flank, with IS-2 losing her nerve, dropping a simple catch and failing two pick-ups in successive turns to waste point-scoring opportunities late in the game.
