In the beginning there was the ball, and the ball was elvish. Alas, the slithering Saurians put so much pressure on the fragile wood creatures that they felt they had to score quickly. But with Ashoka the catcher wounded, it fell on Obi-Wan the Wardancer to run to the line. And he tripped. Furcifer Pardalis picked up the ball and ran away with it, going past the Touchdown line in the last seconds of the first half.
Both teams were so high on adrenaline from the emotions of that first half that they thought the game was over and were very surprised when the referee called them back for what they thought was a third half but was only the second, regular one.
The second half started normally, with Chamaeleo Dilepis feeling safe with the ball in his cage until Anakin jumped in and sent him to the ground. But Nuffle is great, and his love of all things scaly showed. The ball bounced, bounced, bounced again, until it found its way in the delicate hands of Venus herself. All the Kroxigoran goddess of beauty had to do then was to remember to stop looking at herself in a mirror long enough to trample her adversaries and go through the touchdown line.
After that, elvish morale was down the drain. Anakin picked the ball, passed it to Obi Wan, who tripped again. Having no sense of honour, Chlamydosauruss kingii picked the ball, kicked Obi Wan in the same, and ran to the other side of the pitch. And that was basically it. The elves never gave up, but, alas, they never managed to get the ball again.
