||At long last, the moment everyone has been waiting for... after two weeks of
slugging it out aboard the S.S. Deckball, it was finally time to award The Krawk Island Cup.
Who would emerge victorious? Would it be Mr. Roboto, who cruised through League One in stunning
fashion, only to struggle in beating back challanges from Mr. Insane and Blind Justice? Or would
Electric Blue Monkey, who advanced by defeating C-Dawg and J. Boogie, succeed in his quest for
Once the action began, the participants set a furious pace as they battled back and forth. Mr. Roboto
scored almost immediately to take an early 2-0 lead. Despite some golden opportunities, Electric
Blue Monkey was unable to respond, as many of his shots bounced just wide of the goal. Then,
after weathering EBM's attack, Roboto added a pair of quick goals at the two and a half
minute mark. Despite being down 4-0 early, Electric Blue Monkey realised there was plenty
of time to come back, so he settled into a more conservative mode. However, Roboto's superior ball
movement and unfailing accuracy were unstoppable, so by the time Roboto had tacked on his
seventh goal, it looked as if the rout were on.
Undaunted by the fact he was down 7-0, Electric Blue Monkey stormed out to score the first goal
of the second half. But just as he started to gain some momentum, Mr. Roboto responded with
a goal of his own. The action was much tighter in the second frame, as Roboto relied on impeccable
defence to protect his hefty lead. With time continuing to slip away, EBM knew that he couldn't
afford to trade goals with Roboto; and yet, every time Electric Blue Monkey scored, Roboto would
patiently wait for his chance, then respond. Despite outscoring Roboto 4-3 in the second period,
Electric Blue Monkey was unable to overcome the huge defecit he'd built up in the first half.
And so, by virtue of his 11-3 victory over Electric Blue Monkey, Mr. Roboto was awarded this
year's Krawk Island Cup.
