Stadium: Luxury Stadium - Desperate for Exposure
Tonight's match was held at a newly built Luxury Stadium. Being desperate for exposure, they funded 50k towards any star players hired for the match. This gave the Walking Dead enough to hire Setekh for the match and pay the fee for a wizard for the game. Knowing the Walking Dead's reputation, the Heinous Hurt brought a waterboy for their KO box to help revive the inevitable unconscious players.
Heinous Hurt won the toss and elected to receive. Recovering the ball smoothly, they move up the field, but immediately the elves started to suffer casualties. On forming a cage, the wizard fired from the stands. With half the cage blown away, a wight dived through the flames sacking the ball carrier. Unphased, the elves dodge free, recovered the ball and passed to waiting elf hands for a quick score.
The elves lined up to kick for the next drive, already outnumbered. They blitzed the start, allowing their rookie assassin to run up and stab Setekh, who appeared unphased by a small knife wound. In retaliation, the assassin was pushed to the line and blitzed out. The drive continued as the undead slowly marched down the pitch. Desperate elf blitzes managed to pop the ball loose once, but ultimately couldn't stop the touchdown just before half time.
Outnumbered and suffering several injuries, Heinous Hurt lined up for the second half, but couldn't stop the might of the undead as they marched down the pitch. The last few turns of the half were uneventful as the undead milled around at the endzone, while the remaining few elves kept their distance. Walking Dead ultimately win 2-1.
Walking Dead were offered another sponsorship, which they took as a one-off payment for immediate cash.
