The Pandemonium Vanguards decided to challenge the Fin-El's Door Destroyers for their debut in the OGOBBL. Many fans expected an easy victory for the Wood Elves against the unskilled Chaos team but the shrewd acquisition of Star Thrower Lewdgrip Wiparm evened the odds considerably.
On a lovely day for Blood Bowl the Destroyers recieved, but the Vanguards were ready with a perfect defence. Several elves were removed but Thandorien scored in turn two.
For the second drive the Vanguards used their quick snap to gather around the ball. However, Angus was sent off for a vicious, yet ineffective foul and the Dorafin was able to steal another touchdown.
At this point the Destroyers fans were going crazy and inspired the team to greater efforts. This was in vain however, as Lewdgrip led the Vanguards down the field and threw a perfect pass to Braham to pull a touchdown back just before halftime.
After a close and thoroughly entertaining first half the game moved to a new stadium and once it started again everything changed.
The Destroyers, adjusting quickly to the new location Blitzed the Vanguards immediately! Thanwaen managed to KO Shorthorn and Thandorien recovered the ball. Despite the Vanguards best efforts, the Wardancer stayed on his feet to run in the third touchdown.
Shorthorn, enraged by this returned to play and killed Nimrondmor (fortunately saved by his apothecary). Despite Lewdgrip's best efforts the elves held on the for rest of the half and secured the win.
Entertainingly, Shorthorn and Nimrondmor each received their teams MVPs. It will be interesting to see if their careers intersect again in the future.
