MD1 v Dionysian's Nurgle Dio received, and became clear very early on that Nuffle was on my side tonight. My blocks were working, while his weren't, and by turn 3 or 4 I had 11 players to his 8. We danced around a bit, but with the man advantage I was able to force an opening, steal the ball and get it to safety. A ballsy dodge I didn't expect from the Beast of Nurgle marked the ball carrier. Thankfully, the Wizard didn't fizzle, and the first half ended 1-0 to to me. A pitch invasion in my favour made it very easy to move the ball forward and score, which I did in two turns. I probably could have stalled a little, but being 2-0 again Nurgle meant the game was over, right? I started making mistakes after this. Dio sent two receivers forward threatening a quick score. I took one out and triple marked another, but in a way that meant a 3+ dodge would be enough to get free. Which he made, along with the pass and the catch, to make it 2-1. For few turns I moved from right to left a little, keeping the ball pretty well protected. An AG 3 dodge into two, then one tackle zone (I think) got through and took Vomyus out. A couple of foul appearance fails means the screen I was planning was looking shaky. Hig Zyeen the AG boosted Wight dodged away to provide a second assist, and Vomyus took the Strength 4 pest out, got the ball and moved forward. I then did one of those go for its I didn't need to do and burned a reroll. I needed the other Wolf to make a dodge with reroll built in and a go for it, to make a screen. The go for it failed leaving Vomyus wide open, and he was taken out again. It was in a hard position for Dio to get it, he tried more dodges and a pick up in one or two tackle zones (again, can't remember) but failed the pick up. I didn't try to pick up the ball on turn 16 but protected it pretty well. It would have taken a Nurgle warrior dodge into two tackle zones, pick up in two tackle zones, a further dodge, go for it or two, and a long bomb to equalise, but the best double skulled and the game ended 2-1. An odd game, Dio was nuffled, but some of the outrageous stuff he tried worked. I should have secured the game better, but did enough in the end.
