Week 4 continues as Pantanal Slither hosts the Antioch Knights. The Knight got possession of the ball first setting off for the end zone. The BoC proved his worth yet again, snagging the ball off a pass from Arthur and relying on his Knights to give him cover. Clearly remembering game 1, the Knights decided to take the fight to the lizards, managing to out block them to send several off the pitch. Dennis, a new recruit, tried to make a name for himself planting a well earned boot into Hognose's skull as he was sprawled out on the pitch, killing the unfortunate skink. Slither's apothecary tried to revive the fallen star, but it was too late, and the there was much rejoicing on the Knights bench. Unfortunately, the ref saw the dastardly play and sent Dennis home early. Not to be unheard, Knights coach Tim proceeded to argue the call but the ref had had enough at this point and sent the coach off behind his player. The Knights scored in the confusion to earn them an early lead.
The second half saw more underhanded plays as Slither received the ball. Using some compromising photos of Ko'Brah and a slann cheerleader as leverage, the Knights called in their favor as the kroxigor grabbed the ball carrier and threw him in to an oncoming blitzer. Lancelot did his job as the ball broke free. The Rabbit managed to get the ball and fake up the left sending Slither scrambling. Not realizing the play was just a ploy, the Rabbit turned at the last second fleeing up the right side of the pitch and scoring a second touchdown.
The Knights kicked off in the middle of the half to the Slither looking to try and cover the score. Slither fans tired of the constant taunting and underhanded plays by the Knights stormed the pitch. In the ensuing brawl, only the brace Sir Lancelot was left standing to face the opponent in his own idiom. The Slither capitalized on the invasion, scoring a touch down. Unfortunately, the score came too late in the half for either teach to answer. The Knights go on to win their second straight game in a season plagued by injuries.
