There were many empty seats in the stadium, as only 21,000 fans showed up for this match. The Canuck supporters were making themselves heard from the bleachers, giving them some added boost. Both teams only had 11 players as players were missing the match.
Canucks opt to receive, but the fans go crazy and invade the pitch, knocking 4 players down from both teams. Canucks immediately get the ball and start moving up the field, but with so many stunned players they can’t go far. Apparently the time off made them rusty, as they had some serious issues with blocking. Eventually, the dwarves were able to get to the ball carrier and get the ball free, take it and stall for afew turns and score on turn 8 to end the half up 1-0.
Second half, and the dwarves are receiving and Kegheads are down two players to Canucks one. Kegheads get the ball and start working their way up the Canuck right side of the field. Canucks still have issues blocking, but the lack of mobility from the Kegheads slows the drive down to a crawl, but they are pushing their way towards the endzone, knowing a second TD will seal their victory. Eventually Canucks have a chance. And blitz the ball carrier with an unskilled Ulfwerner. Two one-die blocks from the frenzied beast later and the ball carrier is chain pushed out of bounds (not injured), along the other runner (BH) and the ball it thrown into the middle of the field, but Canucks have no free players to get the ball. Kegheads blocker manages to GFI and grab the ball, but he is all alone. Canucks try and get it from him, but he stands up. His teammates come over to support him as he tries to blitz his way out, but it’s a stalemate. Canucks get another try at him and knock the ball free, the Canuck thrower Giv’r grabs it and runs to hand it off to Captain Canuck (who has been having a shit game to this point), but drops it. Dwarves try to get to the ball to slow down the Canucks, but only one player can make it. He is knocked out of the way, and Giv’r takes the ball and starts running it off himself. In the dieing seconds he gets into the endzone to tie the game 1-1.
OVERTIME!!!! Both teams are down two players now. Canucks receive, but quickly both teams get bogged down on the Canucks right sideline. Eventually the ball carrier is knocked down and the ball pops free, but no one can get to it easily. Finally, Canucks manage to clear a path for Captain Canuck who finally gets into the game, dodges, grabs the ball, and GFI twice to get out of reach of most of the Kegheads. Dwarves try to catch him, but are not made for dodging or running. Captain Canuck walks into the endzone to end this EPIC game…
