Top of the table clash, with the Scrats needing to win and the Turkeys of Doom just needing a tie.
The game started well for the rats who were really pumped up for the game, they got the jump on the elves and surged forward from their kick off, disrupting the elven drive. The elves eventually managed to get control of the ball and scored a late TD.
This gave the rats enough time to equalise, which they were well on course to do until an Eclipse befuddled them, Speedy Gonzales managed to keep his feet in the blizzard, needing to go for it a couple of times.
The second half was a very cagey affair with the Scrats not really making much headway for most of the half, keeping the ball well protected around the halfway line. The elves kept pressurising the rats, which eventually resulted in a chance for an easier dodge in to hit the ball carrier, which they duly did. Speedy Gonzales managed to pick up the loose ball to get his second and what turned out to be the winner.
