Last Saturday, /mlp/'s 4chan cup team steeled themselves for a powerhouse of a team. In the past, /toy/ had proved their worth as a rival worthy of the titan /sp/, culminating in a bloodbath of a final in the 2013 Winter Cup. After a small scandal in the Summer Cup, /toy/ found solace in new manager Dawgamus Prime, who paved the way for Woody, Optimus Prime, and Madoka Titus to take charge and beat /fa/ in the 2013 Autumn Babby Cup for the team with the touch to take home their first championship.
Continuing their big win's hype, /toy/ was able to combat their Spring Babby counterparts and meet their every advance with the kind of hard plastic only Mattel and Hasbro know. The match was tentative at first, each side appearing unable to breach each other's defense. A few outliers here and there, most notably the three-strike, three-save Best Pony tête-a-tête with Ham Hands. At the twenty-third minute, Woody nabbed a goal past Derpy Hooves. Heart damaged, /toy/ took the advantage in the second half and charged on the low-morale team, enabling Optimus Prime to shoot another unassisted goal in the forty-ninth minute.
|Safest hooves. Unsafe head.|
In the aftermath of the match, /toy/ manager and general chill-ass motherfucker Dawgamus Prime had this to say,
"Well, Woody and /toy/ came out onto the pitch to do one thing, to stop the almighty horsefuckers. Everybody knew it would a very hype match. /toy/ is on a 7 win streak now, and I thought Woody would be the one coming out on top at the end of this one.
If you look back at the babby cup, Optimus had a HUGE impact, especially because he was the main passing commander in the midfield, but I definately didn't expect him to get a goal (and another which he should have been credited with). If you look at the man of the match, My Nugga, he was definately a contender, he provided a good transition from the defense to the midfield. I was hoping for a late Madoka goal to make it 4-0 because of Ante Up, to piss of Ken after he was absolutely rekking /mlp/, but sadly that didn't happen, it would have been hilarious."Our men on the ground then asked about what Dawgamus thought of the future, more specifically, thoughts on which promoted Foetus and Babby teams would perform well in the big leagues this February.
"Well, /pol/ will definately be one of my favourites of the babby teams, especially since Rowan is stepping down from /fa/ and after him getting 2nd place in the babbies. Other contenders that I can think of could be /y/ and /gd/. I would have said /hr/ and /lgbt/, but they definitely aren't showing anything special in the friendlies, but I'll definitely be looking out for both, they could be contenders."When asked for closing comments, Dawgamus smirked cheekily and simply stated, "This just proves gen1 ponies are better"
