Supermoons 12 – 7 Kongs

1st Quarter – Perfect Volfsball weather greeted the Volfsball players, as they looked unburdened by the weight of sporting history. Both teams threw their meaty bodies around the circular pitch. Whelan proved a powerhouse for the Kongs, scoring the first ever point in Volfsball, Steer equalised for Moons, before Whelan replied to lead 2-1. Larwood then scored to round out the first quarter finished 2-2. There was universal shock about how tiring it was to run around for three minutes.

2nd Quarter As the second quarter begin the Supermoons began to find their stride, their No.4 the Lion haired Matthew Steer had an arm like a laser and his rocket shots coupled with McNeill and Larwood’s defence propelled them to a 6-3 half time lead.

Third Quarter

Josh Howie came off the subs bench for the Moons, as Dave McNeill became scorekeeper, immediately causing his team a disadvantage by believing the score to be 5-3. Steer’s and Larwood were on target for the Supermoons, but Whelan and Tuck answered for the Kongs. The quarter ended 8-5, with still no one having scored a Volfsball (worth 5 points)

Fourth Quarter

Top Scorer Steer headed to the bench for McNeill, this was a chance for the Kongs to get back on terms. Tuck pulled them within two with a prism score, but two hits from Larwood saw the Moons pull into a 10-6 lead. Then tragedy, as a twisted ankle threatened to take Whelan out of the game, but her bravery knows no bounds as she insisted on playing on. Slaphead Larwood struck twice to extend the lead to 12-6. The Kongs needed to throw the ball through the hoop for a Volfsball to pull level. Despite a late score, the Supermoons defence held tight giving them an 12-7 victory. Everyone agreed Volfsball was the winner!
