Match notes
The game was stacked against the Goose Riders from the start. While the Bombers had home pitch advantage and could translate that into an audience seventeen thousand strong, only five thousand Riders fans could afford the considerably more expensive tickets of the B-league. (A sizable step up from last season that was spent in Group E)
Lacking financial werewithal also meant the Riders hired chainsaw-wielder and their retainer wizard had to sit out this game, forcing the Riders to scrounge up whatever good Karma they could lay their hands upon to even the odds.

Beginning on that trek, the Riders barely won the toss with five against four, and decided to kick, and a high kick it was, allowing Vicious Virgin to step back to stand beneath the ball, and quickly make the first completion of the game. The Bombers also opened up the midfield and advanced, managing to pass up the ball further. But a mismanaged blitz to open up more room instead shuts down an avenue and forces the Bombers to try some risky dodges to score. Risky dodges that promptly fail and leave the ball loose for the Riders to pick up, pass downfield and run towards a score of their own.

But they had failed to fully account for elfin speed. Vicious Virgin manages to catch up with Hobby "Goose" McGraft and with some assistance give him such a smackdown that he had to be carried off the pitch for the apotechary to ignore, since it was still so early in the game. In hindsight, his mighty blow would probably have been to great advantage for the team, but hindsight is as always 20/20. In this case the game was still young, and it was still a few moments left until the Bombers would manage yet another pass for a touchdown.

Kicking off now the Bombers were briefly pressed backwards, trying to contain the Riders advance and failing. Only some stumpy goblin fingers unable to catch a pass would prevent a Rider touchdown and allow the Bombers to nearly secure the ball. Nearly, since the Riders turned out to have some hefty blackmail going on with Marjorie Ann that was just about to be called in. Too bad for the Riders, who should have tried to get the goods on Leapin' Liz instead. Now their attempt to get a rat to the endzone to receive the ball from Leapin' Liz failed, and she quickly managed to give the ball to her sister instead, who swiftly passed it upfield for the two-nil score.

The end of the first half went in the sign of heavy cheering for the dominating Bombers, turning into some jeering as the Riders troll Loaf managed to throw a goblin on top of one of the skavens in the team. Then Leapin' Liz blitzed down Riggy Nudgenails again, and the Riders were unable to retrieve the ball again before the half ended.

Second half started with a blitz that saw most of the Bombers pouring up the left side where the ball was about to land. The Riders still managed to secure the ball and once more pass on and hand off to make the ball reach more than halfway down the Bomber half. This time the Riders also managed to block down most of the line of scrimmage and mark up the closest threatening player. Yet this would not be enough, as Ida Wanna could go for it to offer assistance, allowing Marjorie Ann to dodge loose from her marker and blitz Buddy Rimbreaker down and away from the ball. The ball moves upwards once more, is blitzed loose and caught by the blitzer when the riders fans turn out to have carried a ballista through the gates by dividing it into parts and reassembling it along the side of the field. Sadly it turns out that they had also cut the bolt into pieces, so instead of a ballista bolt through Leapin' Liz it is just sawdust and splinters being spread across the pitch, as Leapin' Liz makes yet another reverse blitz and frees the ball for Hanna Solo to score with. Once more there is a great cheer for the Bombers, and the now deeply understrength Riders are so distraught that they can hardly fight back, soon allowing the ball to be captured and passed to Hanna Solo for the four-nil touchdown.

But now the Riders fans can simply take it no more, and a full-scale riot breaks out in the stands, stealing plenty of game-time. Feeling the pressure of their fans and suddenly fearing for their lives, the Riders pick up where they left off in the second drive of the game, and this time they manage to pull their tricks to completion and score a goal for 4-1. Reinvigorated, the Riders manage to get their players back from the knockout booth where one or two have been lounging the entire game, and they also make a blitz move as they kickoff, making them seem like an active threat. But when the goblin that was going to stand beneath the ball stumbles while trying to go past Dinah Mightier then the future was written on the wall. The Bombers went heavily to the right, finishing with a move when their journeyman Duchess of Fubar manages to knock out a goblin, and simultaneously knock out herself. The riders then manage to stop Vicious Virgin and Leapin' Liz from being scoring threats, but they can't prevent Ida Wanna from helping Torya Anewone blitz Windy Lou loose so she can score the fifth Bomber goal, which makes this a record game for the Bombers in amount of touchdowns scored and a shared second place in a short list of other teams that have managed the same feat.
(Indeed, only one team has ever managed to score more than five touchdowns in a single game, in Hillatoppers - Sneaky Gutter Gutters (Season 1, round 1))
