The match began innocently enough, the competitors discovering the playing field somewhat spontaneously. Teams were quickly determined, with Christine and Melinda matched up against Bernard and Andy.
The CM squad scored early and began trash-talking, references to an action made by one’s foot striking another’s posterior being casually flung. Such talk likely fueled the competitive juices of Team BA as they responded with several points in succession, one round scoring an unprecedented 3. They completed the match with a round of 2 points.
The final score was 10-3.
