UDub - one more right for the RFA
Brohio - 2nd right for the RFA

can Cali make it 3/3 of the remaining games?


California, disapointing the RFA since long before most of these teams ever joined our league.

The Rose Bowl was a fun, fairly quick bowl game between two teams that needed to beat up the other first; Cal kicked and preceded to get kicked around. However they had a great opportunity to gangfoul star St4 blitzer Nick Egads...only to fail to even break armor. This let Rolla Gold continue to push the ball further yet still isolate lizards for surfs and blitzes, breaking armor left and right. A lucky -2d by a brave skink popped the ball free momentarily, but Rolla reclaimed it and scored on their final turn. With one turn left and few forces, Cal set a few players aside in case that Nuffle was on their side, and this time he was, setting the clock back. This gave Cal the opportunity they needed, moving the ball downfield and dodging through the scrambling defense to equalize at the half.

After the intermission, both sides had seen the highs and lows of the dice and knew that the initial turns would be key, especially if one could gain a numerical edge. However, after being generous a few turns ago, Nuffle gave the norse an opportunity to improve their defensive setup. Rolla Gold moved players in position for a potential scatter next to the mid-field line, but the wind moved it back towards the lizards. This proved to be nothing more than a tease, however, as the first block of the half was made by an otherwise studly Kroxigor, who picked a hell of a time to roll double skulls, then fail his loner roll.

At this point, the game was more or less over, with Rolla picking up the ball and using their two snow trolls (one a star hired for the game) and ulfenwhatevers to systematically take down the remaining lizards with perfect tandem work. Cal never really threatened the ball from this point on, and both sides simply tried to injure the other until the final whistle sounded as Rolla strolled in for the winning score.

GG to Sutherlands, who played his norse very well and stepped on the throat when the opportunity presented itself. Both teams return most of their players next season (a combined two seniors, both from Cal), and pledged to meet in the National Championship a year from now.
