The Altador Cup Committee would like to apologise for the delay in opening the Colosseum gates this morning, ten buckets of confetti had been accidentally released on the grounds and had turned the entire stadium into a colourful mess. The Yurble Janitor required Water Faerie help in order to get the place cleaned up. Now that that announcement is out of the way, onto the match report for Day 20 (June 20th) of the Altador Cup:

The knights fought against the sun flares yesterday and managed to slay the solar squad in one fell swoop... Well, not exactly a swoop, but a sweep! Team Meridell swept Team Altador and had no intentions of looking back. "We won all four matches in the stout honour of King Skarl!" Captain "Wizard" Windelle exclaimed, followed by cheers from his teammates. Timu of Team Altador smiled sweetly. "They played well. Although I think we should considering hiring King Altador on the team," she joked.

Team Faerieland had a good day against Team Moltara as they swiftly stole wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. "I think Elbin Kroe is getting better at this game as the tournament draws on," Captain Kakoni Worrill observed elatedly. Team Moltara still stands with some of the loudest fans. "Yep, we have awesome fans, they come out and cheer for us despite the results... it's like morning coffee," Captain Aldric Beign said whilst signing a fan's jersey.

The Rooligans versed the scholars and could not deny themselves wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. "Ah... our secret? Hmm... that would be telling," Fenny Vail teased from Team Roo Island. Team Brightvale put up a good fight and drew in Make Some Noise, but claimed Slushie Slinger for themselves. Kayn Hireck said, "I think I need some stitches." His arm was slightly torn from the match.

Yooyuball ended in a draw when Team Darigan Citadel and Team Haunted Woods took to the field. Sort of brings back memories from Altador Cup I. The Darigans secured the overall victory, though, with wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Tormo "The Terror" Frein released this statement; "The only one doing any scaring on the pitch is me." Team Haunted Woods had a louder response from their supporters and won Make Some Noise. "I think they're practicing for Halloween," Zo Junior remarked as he surveyed the crowds.

Team Mystery Island held back the tides from Team Maraqua with bags of sand along the coast. Their defence was strong enough to win Yooyuball and scramble a draw in Shootout Showdown. "I tend to avoid waters with squids nearby," Bertie Shurtz said as an obvious jab at Elon Hughlis in Maraqua. The Maraquans once again had to deal with their Captain complaining, but comfort was taken in the form of wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. Barit Jowes from Maraqua said, "Hey, two wins, it's still great! Forget what Elon thinks."

There was a clean divide between Team Lost Desert and Team Kiko Lake but the Desert Squad had the upper-hand with victories in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger. "Fast-paced sports and cold drinks go hand-in-hand, don't you agree?" Rhee Solters said chirpily after the match. The Kikos were pleased generally, "Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown are ours, and don't you forget it!" Erli Quinnock said challengingly to his next opponents.

Team Virtupets proved that they were dominant in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise when they took on Team Kreludor in the stadium. "And this is why Sloth pwns," Keetra Deile taunted on her way to the locker room. Team Kreludor was stronger in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Zenor Kevix retorted with, "Sloth should go and eat moon dust!"

Team Shenkuu is swinging back into action! With a sound win in Yooyuball, the squad is looking up (not to the stars, but to a possible comeback). Team Tyrannia was not swayed by this and remained dominant in the support games, taking Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. "No surrender!" Antola Maeir cheered. "Scrap" Taggert said, "We still have the support games. No one takes our trademark."

Hannah: Oh my, this is an awkward match to comment on. Do I root for Krawk Island or Terror Mountain? Hi, I'm Hannah, treasure hunter extraordinaire... Hannah the Brave. Dasher Soley ACTUALLY retired from Yooyuball? I never thought I'd see the day. Well, at least Krawk Island won Yooyuball. Their new player seems to have things under control. Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise went to Team Terror Mountain. Armin will be pleased with that. Did I ever tell you guys that I saved the Bori tribe on Terror Mountain? Yeah, that was me... and Kanrik... and Armin. But mostly me. Oh! And Shootout Showdown, that one was VERY close. I don't think the referee could even tell who was faster, so that just ended in a draw. I have too many mixed emotions about this match. I'm happy that the pirates won the main event, and the draw makes things easier because I don't have to take sides with that game... but yay for Terror Mountain taking the other two support games! Okay, I'm gonna go and see if Altador has any hidden treasure. Seeya!

Hey! Save some treasure for us! Ah, she's gone. Oh well, tomorrow the Tiki Tack Man joins us in the VIP Booth.
