    After a delay caused by life being incredibly unpleasant at the end of last year, we're back!

    Monday, 10 January, 8PM UK time, at the O*T arena in Zento


    The delayed writeup for the last match runs something like this ....

    Frosty vs Lightning - Fast start by Frosty, who held a clear lead over Lightning for a few seconds, but was not able to maintain the pace. Steady hitting from both fighters continued through a very close match, and the final result was a hard-fought victory to Lightning

    Shadow vs Quicksilver - Stats advantage heavily to Shadow, skills to Quicksilver, and skills proved massively more important! Comprehensive win for Quicksilver, poor Shadow barely landed a hit at all... Back to training for her!

    (Shortage of skilled fighters meant we needed a second appearance for Frosty ... She really didn't make the most of her chances though!)

    Tea vs Frosty - Very strong and fully trained, Tea was a hard fighter to match, and the nearest we had was the slightly groggy Frosty, who bravely stepped in for a second bout. At first Frosty seemed a bit stunned, and Tea landed a lot of hits without any fighting back from Frosty, but suddenly she got a huge rush of adrenaline and fough back superbly, taking the lead and looking set to cruise to a victory - but Tea had other ideas, dug in and fought back to reclaim the lead, eventually win by the smallest possible margin! Literally only one hit in it...

    Sapphie vs Pepper - Fast rush in from Sapphie, by far the more experienced of the pair, but Pepper was unimpressed and blocked every attack Sapphie tried. Slowly Pepper took the lead, but Sapphie was determined and kept hammering away, until finally, with both birds in the edge of collapsing, Sapphie landed the final winning hit.

    Novelty game - since chickens regularly eat bugs, we tried to find out if a deathwatch beetle was part of their natural diet! Ugly the beetle took on Dryad, a fairly well trained chicken. They were pretty evenly matched, even though Ugly was making by far the most noise, but mid-way through Ugly lived up to his name and sneakily managed to poison Dryad! Even with that advantage, it was still close, but Dryad gradually slowed as the poison took it's toll, and could only manage a brave defeat.

    League positions after match 7 :

    5 : PeckyBalboa, Lightning, Quicksilver, Tea
    3 : Sky, Trinsic Rose
    2 : Trinsic Steel, TwoTimeChampion, Sapphie
