Match 1: Skorpions v Comets 3:1

What a way to start the night, two incredibly strong teams with a lot to prove. The Comets trying to clutch another win after an impressive debut, and the Skorpions wanting to prove they’re a force to be reckoned with going after a second win. It was a strong performance by the Skorpions on Mines to start the series, with an impressive brawl taking center stage in Game Two. With the Skorpions up 2:1 in Game Three it was up to the Comets to hold an impressive defence, and with a clutch draw in their hands, the Skorpions managed to steal the victory, winning the series 3:1.

Match 2: Archers v Conquerors 3:1

The New Zealand Derby, Auckland v Christchurch. Two strong New Zealand teams faced off to prove who was the country's strongest! Sand River brought us an incredible Game Two with the Conquerors looking like they had the win secured until some incredible play and exploitation of the Conquerors mistakes by the Archers secured them the upset win, and the 2:0 lead going into the ANZPL’s first match on Himmelsdorf! The battles were close and the Conquerors had a solid Game Three, but couldn’t manage to break the Archers down, with the Archers winning the series 3:1.

Match 3: Action X v Panthers 1:3

The first Match where the Westerners verse the South instead of East Coast! After coming off our first Himmelsdorf match just moments ago, we were straight back on to a Himmels showcase. The first games were absolute brawls, with some strong performances from both sides, but the Panthers clutched the victory in the first, and had a convincing win in the second. Action X held strong in Game Three, and were pushing for the draw to hold the series even, but an impressive last stand by JimmyGroken lead the Panthers to winning the series 1:3.

Match 4: Sentinels v Bulldogs 2:2

This was the game to watch this week, the undefeated Bulldogs came up against the Sentinels who were desperate for a win after drawing every game in the ANZPL so far. The Sentinels came out of the gate swinging, with an incredibly risky play down Prokhorovka’s 1 and 2 line by Rainbow and Rowendy which paid off in droves. The chat was convinced the Sentinels were going to break the draw streak, being up 2:0 at the half time break, but unfortunately for them, some great play by the entire Bulldogs team saw the series tied at 2:2

Week Three Leaderboard

The South Sydney Skorpions knocked the Bulldogs off the top of the standings, with a hotly contested first, second and third place with a point of difference between all three places. The middle of the leaderboard is just the same, with a win or draw for any of the teams likely to have a major impact on the leaderboard. A lot could change this week.
