HKIRBBTL: Skogen Mörke Dimmubowl 2012: Murderers-Ravens 1-2

Victory was on the line at final sunday (or as the Norse call it söndag) match between the Mephala's Murderers and Ragnarock Ravens. The Murderers had squeezed a tie with the 3rd Street Mutants on the day before and the Ravens were 1-1 after a victory against the Mutants and a nail-biter loss against Tor Achere Titans. As Skogen Mörke Dimmubowl was brainstormed into existence by the Ravens coaching staff (aka. Asatru Ahnold Azanulbizar Sjöfarare) after an abysmal defeat to Braga's Brutes, the hometown Ravens were given plenty of opportunities to win, while the tournament frontrunner Titans played just one game.

Now however either team could grab a hold of the Aili Mattila Memorial Trophy in the shimmering afternoon light of the Northern Norse Special (tm) Dimmubowl in snow-flooded Skogen Mörke. Having reclaimed their fans affections the Ravens were pleasantly surprised to see a total of 5000 hungover fans on ledgers while only 3000 Murderers maniacs had made the trip through ice clogged fjords of Nordmansland.

The game got underway with the Ravens receiving (on their own accord per new game strategy) under a clear sky and in brisk, barely freezing weather.

The Murderers were ready for the norse assault however and blitzed Ravens lineman Per Yngve Ohlin into the arms of slumbering fans. Luckily for Ohlin the crowd was too jubilant and merely got him stunned drunk on Northern Norse Mead.

Raven retaliation  was swift as blitzer Hans von Helvete showed the culprit witch elf Shishi Yanumibaal into the crowd for a mead pause too.

For a good while the Ravens were back to their old clumsy ways and the game broiled in a midfield melee the ball all but forgotten.

Finally lineman Tomas Haugen surprised himself and his coach by scooping up the ball and scooting off to the relative safety of the Ravens cage (also known as den låda).

With two more Murderers players getting KO'd by the frenzied Ravens werewolves and blitzers the teams defensive line was getting thin. This gave lineman Haugen a chance to slip through and make a run for it.

He was quickly surrounded by the remaining Murderer linemen but managed to stand on his feet clutching the ball in his frost bitten hands.

In the final moments of the first half the Ravens now had their opening. The rest of the team gouged a path for the blitzers, who then launched a surgical tag-team strike to release their teammate. Haugen promptly ran of putting everything on the line to score a touchdown.

Haugen was unavailable after the game as boisterous fans had manhandled him onto a longboat loaded with mead.

The Murderers were far from beaten though. They started the second half by snapping swiftly and storming the Ravens already underwhelmed left flank. Blitzer Harald Hårdare went out of the game with a roar, and is reported to have suffered a smashed knee. At the same time lineman Reidar Horghagen was showed of to same stand and knocked out cold.

This opened the field for the Murderers throwing offense. As a last ditch effort werewolf Geri tried to blitz the elves thrower but stumbled on his own tail.

The Murderers then had an easy time to tie the game 1-1.

The Ravens fans were fully woken and roared like the flames of Muspelheim thus lifting the home teams spirits for a tournament defining kick-off.

The game roiled again in the line of scrimmage as thrower Thor Åkenskaldi handed the ball to runner Leifur Eriksson, who promptly scampered off toward the end zone.

Eriksson didn't make it far before the elite Murderers were all in his business and the runner was taking toll of the blades of grass after a fierce sack by witch elf Yanumibaal.

The wolves were loose however and smelling victory (raw elk flesh) Geri and Freki jumped to their teammates rescue. The ball was forgotten amid fur, teeth, and claw until the helpful home team fans threw it back on the field right by Eriksson.

He continued the offense with teammates for protection. And even the superbly playing witch elf was unable to stop him from scoring.

Again the Ravens took the lead.

A wild gust of wind  surprised the elves. Asatru Sjöfarare surprised them as well, having changed players on his weak, left side. The Murderers ran into a determined Raven defense while the game clock was running out.

The Ravens therefore were able to clinch the game 2-1 and keep the Aili Mattila Memorial from going abroad. Drunken revelries commenced and Skogen Mörke was not, as a thousand bonfires lit up the night!

The Murderers lineman Vatollia Apo was elected MVP for having had the sense to stay out of the way.  Ravens MVP was lineman Reidar Horghagen for traditional norse reasons: crowd surfing and returning on field unscathed thereafter.

Ragnarock Ravens win Skogen Mörke Dimmubowl.
