Season 2, we hardly knew ye.

Hey sports fans! Season two is over and done with in record time! League sponsors are immensely happy and hope the rest of the rounds go as fast! No change at the top as the wily coach Hassett maintains his lead but the rest of the table sees a lot of movement. Check out the developments below and stay tuned for round 3 matches!

The first 3 matches from Round 2!

Feverish play today in Belfield, as the head coaches were keen to try out new skills, new plays and new MVPs. From Digby’s point of view it was an expensive day as the Pain Game between the Abusment Part and the Plastics saw the Orx kill Buzzcut, the Forge Father team avenged themselves by making Slippery Joe into a slippery paste. The day’s games also saw The Painmaster succumb to catastrophic injury. The Praetorian however, played a stunning game, showing the monkeys how passing, throwing and picking up is actually done. Monkey Zee Monkey Do now go second in the table, much to the terror of Coach Kenny who sees a giant target on his back now.

Round 2 fixtures are all confirmed, MVPs have been hired, corporate sponsors are salivating- that’s right folks, we’re ready for Round 2!

League officials are incorporating a new rule regarding friendly matches from this week onwards- no competing team may have a 2nd friendly match until all competing teams have had 1 friendly. This doesn’t change the rule that teams can’t have a 2 friendlies against the same team, or against their league opponent for that round.

So, here are the fixtures for this week-

Koopa   Troopas VS Bugs Life
     
Veer-myn VS Turing Testers
     
MZMD VS Killer Hippos
     
Abusment Park VS The Plastics
     
You’re Lyan VS Belfield Blitzkreigs
     
The Beards VS Sticky Steelers

Some interesting matches coming. One of the week’s highlights is likely to be the Pain Game between the Plastics and The Abusment Park- the addition of some goblin speed and the mighty Buzzcut to the mix should spice things up nicely!

The MVP auction also took place today via e-conference link from the coaches training grounds- here’s how the first round of spending went:

Reek   Rolat 9mc Killer Hippos
Yurik Yurikson 11mc Abusment Park
“Lucky” Logan 8mc Belfield Blitzkreigs
Slippery Joe 8mc The Plastics
The Preatorian 11mc MZMD
Buzzcut 11mc Abusment Park
Melisandra 10mc You’re Lyan

 

Not everyone had the funds to hire an MVP, but thankfully these coaches have secured for themselves some easier matches this week.

Finally, here’s out table going into this set of games- lets see can someone shake it up. Who’s got the skills and the game plan to kick the murder teams off the top?!

Press release from Belfield League, PR, a division of Game Holdings and SocTec enterprises.

And the results are in!

A. Nrd here from the luxurious Meeting room 7 in UCD. It’s been a long week, and a long day. We’re sitting here in the detritus and chicken tender & chip boxes at the end of round one.

Interim coach Cullen took the nameless to the field, and I’m sure the owners wish they’d just make their way back to the stygian depths of the ocean abyss. The Greenskins took a landslide victory as coach Hassett dropped his usual gameplan and ran the ball, with Rosa Parks and Denise scoring some impressive strikes.

Finally, the home team took a comprehensive victory over the Koopa Troopas. The Belfield Blitzkriegs moved second in the table, with the turtles dropping to the bottom in a disastrous debut  for Coach Tynan.

Tomorrow sees the first round of MVP auctions following the draw for next week’s matches. Keep an eye on the wires for live invas-tising of the event, as it happens!

Round one roundup!

This is A. Nrd reporting for GS Sports news-

Game results are coming in thick and fast here from the Belfield League- and for those who missed the live casts, GS sports news is here with the first exclusive reports! Things kicked off as the Killer Hippos faced off against the Bearded Ladies. This turned into a real slog of a match, as the score counter sped from side to side each rush, despite inflicting the first casualty of the league upon one unlucky Judwan (Yan ‘Skinny’ Yin was later revived by Coach Benn who couldn’t bear to part with any of his players this early) the plucky ladies lost by a one point margin, but having proved just how dangerous they can be!

Game two saw Bug’s Life take to the field to emerge victorious by a margin of 2 points in what was a confusing game. Gandolfi’s critters performed admirably, but Coach Kenny continued his recent run of form as his cheeky monkeys failed to maintain any consistency in scoring or handling. Despite being famous for his impressive coaching of the Sphere’s most impressive Toddler teams, he can’t seem to make the same lessons stick with Monkey Zee Monkey Do.

New coach Hanrahan took the Turing Testers to the pitch against the much feared Abusment Park. The Forge Father’s put their technological mastery to use by comprehensively dismantling the robots. Both Sudo and Flash being taken out of commission for the game, and requiring serious repairs at substantial cost to the Coach afterwards. The Forge Fathers spend most of their time trying to hurt things, and won by 2 points. This reporter thinks it may well be time for Hanrahan to reboot his game plan before round 2.

The final action of the day saw Coach Gilmore take a brutally fast turn 7 landslide as the Asterians of Youre Lyan swept aside the skittering Veer-myn opposition of Coach Montague.

This puts Youre Lyan at the top of the table so far, with only two games remaining to be played this round before the MVP auction and draw for round 2 matches.
