Hello coaches. Here is the first of a number of articles, with the statistics from the pro and challenge league records.
First off a big thanks to Seriousjest for maintaining these in previous seasons. It took a lot of time and he never had the benefit of the new tools available, provided by Doneagle (thanks for making this easier for me!).
So without furter ado, here are the single-game team records including the current regular season, with 3 new entries.

So despite suffering a 2-0 loss against Stop Rolling Ones!!!, coach Konamicode and USA Ballstars set a new record of 81% (previously 62%) for occupation of own half. Most of the time occupation of ball is key, but this game showed it’s quality of possession that matters. Still, kudos Konamicode!
Dwarfgiant and The Pumpkin Kings inflicted 3 deaths against The Blitzkreigers in the final week of the season. Who knew this would turn out to Be Stuntmandidi’s last game (for now). Well done Dwarfgiant! Though, weren’t you being lauded as a passing orc team? Sometimes orcs have to be orcs I suppose 🙂
Most impressively, a record that had been difficult to touch has been beaten twice this season! Commisserations to Spawn_of_Cthulu and the Skuttle Butts who managed 222 yards running in a single game. However, as you can see, this and the previous record of 218 yards set by a Conor McGregor led Los Pumas from season 5, was blown away by Snitchburgh Pierats in their 5-0 victory over Stop Rolling Ones!!! Well done Whiskey_Tornado. This record could very well be “iron” clad.
Good luck to those attempting to get any of the above records in season 9.
