Round 1 of the Oceanus cup has opened with some explosively physical matches.
First we saw the Ebonmarsh Chargers and Lor Voskara clash, with the Chargers showing some uncharacteristically bad ball handling they still managed to scrape across the line to a 1-0 win over King Xakorai.
Next we saw the powerful Chaos Warriors of Lethal Weapon21 coached by Caprakan's Drexy take on the stealthy and agile Skaven of the Reikland Electors coached by AQ's Lady Grace. Despite trying his hardest to put the rats down the Chaos were no match for the speed of the Skaven who took the win 1-0, we also had an early contender for the Spike! Magazine's Worst Tackle of the Year award when the Rat Ogre; "No Good, Lazy Rat" fouled himself up when trying to bash a wayward Beastman, thanks to the timely intervention of an apothecary however, the Rat Ogre's life was saved and he will play another day.
Next we saw the masterful coaching of Duke Kov Generex as he lead the Genera Genocide in a crushing 2-0 defeat of Compromised's AmAUson team. Despite the hardy and dogged resistance of the Amazons, their drive and heart was not enough to stop the overwhelming force of the Chaos warriors and Beastmen.
The final game of Round 1, saw the King of the South; Preacher, lead his Lizardmen team, Preacher's Punishers into battle against the Undead of Duke Ariff Khalma's, Akatash Raiders. A Brutal and very physical game resulted in a 1-0 win for the Lizards, but the Undead still had their pride inflicting 2-1 Casualties against the eventual victors.
