Rhein Rhur Germinators – When, Russell, Marsh

Muswell Hill Supermoons – Larwood, Feilder, Somerville

 

A hot summer’s day would prove a challenge to both teams without subs as temperatures soared to 28c. The insect attack of the previous week was a distant memory as Feilder was on fire in the first quarter, nailing a Volfsball and providing 7 of the 9 Supermoon points. The first quarter ended with the Moons up 9-3, and the Germinators chances of a first win fading. Interestingly enough all six players scored points in the quarter, another tedious statistic for the world of Volfsball.

 

The second quarter saw both teams slow in the heat, and the shooting was poor. Somerville hit a couple for the Moon, Henning and Marsh replied for the Germinators – 11-5 at the half.

 

The third was the same story, just a solitary point as no-one seemed to find any consistency, the Supermoons looking strong going into the last quarter up 12-5.

 

Into the fourth with the Supermoons up 13-6, Matthew Marsh hit a Volfsball under pressure, suddenly the Germinators were back in it trailing by two. Then with 30 seconds left and Larwood in his grill Marsh sank another giving the Germinators a 16-14 lead. The Supermoons had no answer and three point kick attempts and shots went astray. Shocked by two last quarter Volfsballs the Supermoons hit their fourth consecutive loss while Marsh spurred the Germinators to the franchise first victory
