MAHID WOMEN REIN IN DULIS

Risae 8, 50 Y.P.A. Arko City
Two days ago, contrary to loud predictions of an enormous loss, the female Mahid team held the Flying Dulis to a zero zero, with opened goals. The historic match was played in front of an exclusive and appreciative crowd.
It seemed at first that the Dulis would, as predicted, roll over the women, with the first goal opening, but the Mahid girls slid a disk past the unsuspecting Teshan Buren. Both Buren and Tesha Mahid, as goal keepers presented an astonishing display of skill.
The Dulis dominated the first set and clearly expected an easier game. Team Captain Saras Trenen said, “We expected a score of ten or more against an unopened goal, at first. Our coach told us not to hold back and we didn’t. I’ll admit I was surprised the way they came out in the second set. Fast, hard and I suppose we should have realized that they were letting themselves play like Mahid men.”
The second set was as startling and bloody as some of the more famous Mahid men’s. The women used their speed and their agility to excellent effect and the much theorized ‘female wiles’ to deliver at least one hit that laid Trenas out for the set and for the next game as well. “I’m still seeing stars,” the captain said.
The Mahid women’s captain, Jorasa, was equally blunt describing the check that sidelined her for the game. “He hit me with authority and dispatch,” she said with typical Mahid stoicism, then a momentary smile startled. “As if I’d been smashed with a war hammer.”
Coach Arenen expressed his pride in his team in glowing terms. “They showed some of what they can do. Give them enough time and a second string and they’ll be in the High League in the next five years, mark my words.” This reporter is curious to discover the secrets of play that the Coach is hinting of, but Arenen declined to say.
Other Mahid, who were in the audience also expressed their pride. “They do their brothers and husbands and fathers proud.”
The Dulis’ coach, Feniras Trenas, was reticent when asked if the Dulis would play the Mahid women again, but there are rumors of other solas teams wishing to test their metal against the team some brand new fans are starting to call the Onxyine Razor Fans.
