Kongs 14 – 6 Germinators

Starting Line Ups

 

Germinators – Russell, Crosse and Dixon. Subs – Wehn

Kongs – Reed (David), Reed (John) and Tuck.

 

Henning Wehn brought a European taste to the world of Volfsball as his Rhein Ruhr Germinators team took on the Camden Kongs while temperatures reached 23C on a field in North London. Dressed in beautiful white kits, with red shorts and green socks, the Germinators looked sharp, the onlooking crowd waited to see if their gameplay matched their finery.

 

Wehn decided to start the game on the sidelines, hoping his vocal coaching could spur his team on to capture a maiden victory. The experienced Kongs were immediately stunned by Simon Crosse’s opening salvo, as he shot the Germinators into a 1-0 lead. But the steady arm of prolific Kongs scorer John Reed soon had them in the ascendency 4-1 up, before the dangerous looking Crosse scored again to pull the Germinators back to 4-2. As usual there was general confusion about the correct score.

2nd Quarter

The crowd were expectant as Wehn subbed himself on for the impressive Crosse. But the experience of the Kongs showed as John Reed and Thom Tuck pummeled the Volfsball stand, despite audacious DoppleVolfsball attempts from Henning, the Germinators ended the half trailing 8-3.

3rd Quarter

The third quarter was more of the same from the Kongs, Tuck and John Reed impressive from the field, although Russell and Crosse put in good shifts defensively. Tuck added insult to injury with a no look over the head lob to give the Kongs as seemingly unassailable 11-4 lead with just three minutes to play.

4th Quarter

Both sets of teams were on target in a heavy scoring fourth quarter. John Reed put in an MVP performance racking up 8 of his teams points, while Nick Dixon came to life for the Germinators, but it was all too late as the Kongs prevailed 14-6. A great opening game from the Germinators who showed plenty of promise for the future.
