Neo League 276 - #292: Sean vs Roberto

Description: This Neo-League fight came about when Sean wanted to avenge his previous loss to Roberto. With nothing on the line other than pride, Sean draws on the energy from the students of Pacific High and a bit of luck to gain the victory. Even with this victory, it looks like the rivalry won't be over any time soon (Winner: Sean).

The halls of Pacific are a little more crowded than usual. In a school like this one, one wouldn't quiet expect a fight to be going on in the HALLS of the school, but you know Sean Matsuda; he's got to raise the bar! A fight like this could raise his cred outside of the Basketball team, and not only that, he's got to save some face after the rather embarassing incident of you know; doing Taiyo laundry in Taiyo colors.
It's well past the afternoon; and this match is taking place in one of the long hallways, two school desks forming as 'boundaries' for the combatants, to the sides some chairs, plenty of lockers of course; and not only that some scattered schoolbooks, binders, baseball bats, soccer balls, things that may prove useful for both fighters this match.
Sean Matsuda stands atop one of the desks, his arms crossed, with a sweet pair of Ray-Bans over his eyes. Of course he's in his Pacific uniform, but with his red gloves worn over his hands. Today.. Today he was going to be the victor! And for once, he's the crowd favorite! The very moment Roberto would walk in, he'd be assaulted by boo's and jeers from the cheering students. ..... ... And a couple of teachers! Scandal!

There are the sounds of heavy foot falls on the ground, occasional squeaks of sneakers on tiles and yelling of profanity.
And that's when Roberto rounds the corner with a bunch of beefy Pacific High Students in letter jackets hard upon his heels. Yes, Roberto is booed and jeered by the student body not concerned with trying to get out of the rushing students way. Roberto knew he was unpopular with the student body, but this was rediculous. He sees the camera crews, the desks and runs harder upon seeing daylight and then when he gets to the desk he slides under the legs of the desks to get inside the 'ring.'
Roberto takes a moment to right himself up and stretch but mid stretch a soda bottle gets thrown at him which he easily swats aside.

"... Wow, man.. Uh, geez.." Sean mumbles once he sees Roberto walking in, and just shakes his head. Even -he- didn't get it that bad when he walked in on Taiyo turf; just goes to show just how seriously the Pacific Students take their school pride! ... Rediculously so, apparently. He hops off the desk with a flip and once he land, gives a lazy salute to Roberto, "H- Hey man, I just want you to know, I didn't think it was gonna be -this- bad.. Um, sorry about that, it's nothin' against you, I just wanted a match on my turf this time. No bets, no games, just retribution." he then grins weakly, "All I can really suggest is to put on a good fight, man. You ready to do this?" and he holds out his fist toward his opponent.

Cammy has arrived.

It's mostly about timing. Had Sean came just after school let out rather than after the soccer practice was over it might've been a different story. Most of the rowdier students are either home or at the mall around that time. Plus most of the kids on sports teams have no inclination towards ganging up on people.
Roberto touches his chin as he listens to what Sean has to say after he's done, "No bets, no games.... Works for me." He tips his sky blue visor to Sean and smiles before he opens his mouth again, "I'm ready if you are." He extends the knucks' as a sign of respect before falling into a loose goalie's ready stance. After a few moments of bouncing on his toes he hops forwards throwing a quick jab to feel his opponent out.

COMBATSYS: Roberto successfully hits Sean with Quick Punch.

Sean grins right back to Roberto, and once the fists tap and he hops back a little, he drops into the CLASSIC ansatsuken stance, bouncing quickly on his feet. Today, he was going to ROCK. But just because it was redemption, didn't mean he wasn't going to have a good time with it.
"All right, then lets do this, Tron!" And do this he does, that quick jab pops Sean right between the eyes, making his head snap back and take a couple of steps back. He shakes his head, "W-- Ow! Cripes!" and he doesn't go for any testing stuff, he just hops right on in, attempts to clasp Roberto by the collar of his shirt, and then with a twist, to slam the goalie right onto his back, "Hyah!"

COMBATSYS: Roberto blocks Sean's Seoi Nage.

When Sean grabs the collar of his shirt, he gasps in shock before the words, "What the..." leave his mouth. After that, Roberto shifts his body around to move with his opponent's twist and then as Sean finishes the motion he moves himself so his feet are under him when Sean finishes the throwing motion.
Roberto whips his hands inside of Sean's to push his hands off of him before diving at his waist as he reaches out to grab him. If Roberto is successful, he'll rise to his feet and then give Sean a swift kick.

Roberto          0/-------/--=====|=====--\-------\0             Sean

Sean is on the ball, in a sense, he takes a small stumble when Roberto manages to keep from getting completely floored; but he's not in any position to counter attack even when he's brushed back.
Like a mirror, Sean draws into a slight crouch when his opponent does, but he doesn't make a dive of his own until Roberto makes a decent. The two bodies collide with quite a thump, but Sean's momentum allows him to continue; slamming the other boy onto the floor with the tackle. He quickly dismounts to slide and place Roberto in a headlock, giving two firm punches to the noggin, and finally breaks the hold to roll away.
He raises his fists in the air, and the students release a thunderus roar!

Roberto grunts upon hitting the ground followed by a pair of punches to the back of the head. The soccer star slowly rises to his feet with a stunned look as he shakes the shots off.
After a bit of time to get his head together he eyes a nearby soccer ball. He makes a rush towards it and moves towards Sean quickly dribbling it towards him. When he gets to Sean he begins to juggle the ball bouncing it off his chest, head, thighs, and finally feet. He kicks the ball up and swings his leg up into the air above the ball and across Sean's face before bringing the foot back under to catch the soccer ball before it hits the ground.

COMBATSYS: Sean blocks Roberto's Heavy Kick.

Roberto          0/-------/--=====|======-\-------\0             Sean

It all looks rather confusing at first; Sean isn't sure what to expect; a ball attack or a more physical blow.. His eyes follow best he can, taking small steps back until he just flat out guesses; and snaps his arm up a moment after the ball is kicked upward.. And wouldn't you know it, he manages to not only block the kick, but he also ducks quickly lest that powerful blow break through his guard; "Hup!" he spins in a complete circle, stopping only to jerk his hand out and snap a quick backhand into Roberto's gut, "Put some lead into it, Tron, you're makin' this too easy!" he teases.

COMBATSYS: Roberto fails to interrupt Jab Punch from Sean with Long Shot.

Roberto          0/-------/-======|======-\-------\0             Sean

Roberto watches as the soccer ball drops. He watches as Sean spins around and as Sean sends out that hand to nail him in the gut that's the moment he kicks. It was a moment too late however and with the punch landing, the shot that probably would've hit Sean is kicked aside, bouncing off the lockers before it rolls harmlessly on the ground. Roberto stumbles backwards before returning to the ready stance. Taking deep breaths as he attempts to calm himself down.

Whatever Roberto was attempting to do seemed.. Well, pretty risky! And unfortunatly that risk didn't pay off; though Sean does glance to the locker that the ball bounced off of. Did he manage to make Roberto feel off his game? It was hard to say but Sean -is- on the move again, "HEEEEEEEERE it comes!" he yell, jumping onto the lockers to sort of wall-walk, and then leaps off of it toward Roberto, and from his horizontal position, twirls around as if going for a spinning heel kick. Which wouldn't be too far off, but the way he hooks his heel down, he's intending to not only land the kick about the neck and shoulder, but with enough force to knock Roberto onto the ground, "BIG RIGHT HANDS!!"

Roberto watches as the kick comes down upon him and he widens his stance and bends at the knees to catch both feet in the air. He then pushes Sean upwards as he gets ready for his own attack.
"You telegraphed that move," Roberto softly whispers before leaping up into the air as he chases Sean up into the air with a leap as his hands begin to glow as the move to grab Sean again and then send him back downwards with a burst of chi.

COMBATSYS: Sean blocks Roberto's Shining Save.

Roberto          1/-------/=======|=======\-------\1             Sean

Sean grins nervously as he's hoisted back up, "Y- You think so?" he asks.. Which is really bad, because Sean pushed it to the limit with that attack; he wasn't in a very good position to defend himself; so Roberto gets a good clutch onto the Brazillian and drives him right down to the ground. The surge of chi is felt for sure;
But the moment of impact, Roberto completely loses his grip, and Sean rolls away in a little ball not unlike the GREAT Sonic the Hedgehog! Once he's on his feet, he staggers again, bumping into the locker, "W-- Woah! Crap, that was close," he mumbles, and then he is back. Back on the attack! "Almost, man! Unluckily for you, I'm pretty lucky today! And considering we're evenly matched;" he drops into a slide, and attempts to scissor his shins about Roberto's own, "Luck may make all the difference here!" he twists his hips again, hopeing the jerking motion will send the goalie planting face first onto the floor!

"GAH!!!"Roberto shouts as he takes a nasty looking fall on his face. It is a good thing he had the presence of mind to turn his face before he fell because otherwise there might've been a nose bleed for Pacific High's janitorial staff to clean up. He growls as he touches his face.
He looks around as he sees the the Pacific students, loudly jeering him. He rises to his feet as he hooks his foot around Sean's ankle and pulls it in the same motion. Maybe a quick drop will pacify Pacific High.

COMBATSYS: Sean dodges Roberto's Light Kick.

Sean, on the other hand, is completely getting fueled by the atmosphere; the Home Turf giving Sean the advantage is really starting to show here! But Sean isn't completely interested in being a showboat today, just putting Roberto down for the count! By the time Sean is on his feet again and Roberto snaps out his own foot, it doesn't take more then a quick hop to avoid the attack, "Hup!"
He grins broadly, dancing lightly on his toes, and he's on the attack once more, this time going for two big kicks. The first a spin-kick across the cheek, a light step back and then a thrust kick that threatens to be hard enough to kick the goalie right into one of the lockers!

Roberto leans back as the kick across the face moves by him. Unfortunately the kick he avoided set him up for the kick that shoves him in the locker. After Roberto gets shoved in the locker suddenly closes. There's a bang. The sound of rubber soles meeting metal. More banging. There's a few moments of silence. In this silence Roberto is contemplating his inability to handle Matsuda. This quickly moves towards frustration at the fact that he's stuck in a stinking locker that happens to have a rotten sandwich, and sweaty gym socks. Soon frustration gives way to rage and a sudden roar is released from the lockers before Roberto charges out of his confines.
Roberto, with an unusually psychotic look on his face, then heads towards Sean at break neck speed as he kicks at him hoping to send him bouncing off of the lockers. If this initial kick is successful he will be bouncing him off the lockers several times before kicking him through the legs of one of the desks.

COMBATSYS: Sean endures Roberto's Pass and Shoot!

Roberto          0/-------/----===|=======\=====--\1             Sean

Sean stands there for a moment.. And is just standing there blinking as the locker door slams shut. His eyes shift, and the yelling of the crowd seems to die down as well. For a moment, Sean even considers moving in to go and open the door, but it comes bursting open like something out of The Shining,
HERE'S JOHNNY! "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" the brazillian cries, leaping back in complete shock, and Roberto starts his assault.
It's a little difficult to tell exactly what Sean is doing besides getting a beatdown- He goes bouncing off of the lockers a good number of times, feeling like a human hackeysack, and the final kick not only sends him through the desktables; but right into the crowd, the Pacific Students yelling in shock.
What Roberto probably doesn't see is that he's manage to land in a Spider-man-like crouch, sneakers squeaking along the floor and he just so happens to bump into two members of the wrestling club! Each man man grabs Sean by his blazer, heaves, and launches the boy right over the gathering, and the moment he hits the floor again is a blue streak blazing toward the goalie, attempting to shoulder-tackle right into the gut.. The boy may see it, he may not, but if that blow hits, it's going to get ugly.

Roberto          0/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0             Sean

While the shoulder-tackle can be felt, it's not even longer than a couple of seconds before Sean sends an uppercut into Roberto's chest, with one fist, and then the other! In one smooth motion it becomes another roundhouse kick under the chin, another twirl plants a foot into the gut and launches the goalie upward; one kick and then a secound kick as Sean leaps up into the air, "Hyah! KYAH!" he yells, twisting into the air to send a heel kick over Roberto's head, giving him a one way trip back to the floor. And once Sean drops to the ground, he raises a hand to his chin and just... Grins. It's his Trump Card after all, this match HAS to be over. No man could survive that combination! "Haha!" he bellows, "Rule #1: Never give up! .. Rule #2: Don't fight me! And most importantly, Rule #3..."

The crowd is cheering loudly. The entire hall is on its feet.Roberto slowly gets up to his feet. His body swaying in a punch drunk stupor as he wobbles towards the Brazilian bomber. "Man... Did that hurt." It's then that Pacific High crowd is silenced stunned by the fact that he's still able to fight.
Roberto finally stops in front of Sean and falls forward to his knees. He stands up one more time, he turns backwards before performing a flip dropping his foot towards Sean's head.

COMBATSYS: Sean blocks Roberto's Bicycle Kick.

"And Rule #3: Don't be like-- eh?" with three fingers raised, he stares at the crowd when it calms down, and his brow furrows. He glances over his shoulder, jumping again slightly in disbelief, "WHAAAT? No -way-! Aurrgh, that is not right!" he yells. He had his victory pose, his speech and everything and there Roberto had to go and stand back up, completely blowing his little party. For a moment he has the right mind to uppercut Roberto right into the moon; but he can't quite bring himself to punch the guy in the back, "........ uh..?"
That question is answered quickly enough, when the feet come toward him with a vengeance, he slips a little to the side, able to read the attack enough not to just try and block it outright; the feet meet his gloves, and he knocks them to the side, "All right, all right, DO OVER," he declares, and he takes a moment to lean forward and try to pull his visor down even more over his eyes, "An opening!" he yells, weather he manages to blind him or not, he's suddenly faced with a jumping uppercut as the boy bursts forward, "Shoyruu!!" twists arround, and then he launches straight upward, spiralling with another huge uppercut that, quite frankly, would look a lot more awesome with flames about his fist. It'll happen one day! "CANNON!!!!"

COMBATSYS: Roberto blocks Sean's Shoryu Cannon.

Roberto          1/-------/=======|-------\-------\0             Sean

Roberto weaves out of the attempt to pull down his visor with surprising grace while he moves a gloved hand in the way of the oncoming punch, screaming in intense agony as the hand absorbs the brunt of the attack. His body falls backwards and skids across the ground. To the student body, the hit actually did land. But only Roberto, Sean, perhaps the trained fighters who watch the footage, or those who watch the footage in slow motion would see that the blow didn't land as solidly as Sean would've hoped...
The students remain quiet this time uncertain whether or not Roberto is going to stand again. The ref looks like he's about to call the match but Roberto holds up his arm one more time. He slowly stands up yet again, his feet wobbling he approaches Sean.
He finally uses the last of his strength to slam a knee into the gut of Sean to try to send him up into the air following by turning around and flipping backwards kicking out at Sean as he flips back at him. No matter if the kick hits or misses, he'll be landing flat on his face and this time he won't be getting up.

COMBATSYS: Roberto can no longer fight.

Sean has to make sure Roberto is down for the count as well! He was overzealous last time, but this time around... He'll wait it out.. He keeps starting and staring, and lo, Roberto is back up! The brazillians eyes narrow, and he grits his teeth slightly when Roberto turns his back yet -again-. It's not a strategy the Ansatsuken student is very happy of; it's effective though, as it again keeps Sean from attempting to send him skyrocketing; but he also knows how to deal with it more impressibly, his arms cross over his head and with a grunt he stands up; sending Roberto flipping right back onto his back.
.. There's silence.. And after a moment the ref calls the match, there's no doubt then that it's over, and the screaming is near deafening! Most are exstatic, other's are a bit annoyed that there wasn't a Laundry bet on it this time around; but the rivalry between Taiyo and Pacific clearly isn't anywhere near over yet, even with this win!
But Sean, he continues to stare down at Roberto, his guard up and waiting for even the slightest twitch.. He'd be dammed if his celebration was messed up a third time! The desks knocked over, the Pacific Basketball team bursts ahead, ruffling Seans head, giving their congratulations, and lift him up into the air to carry him off toward the rest of the crowd. Which would be a pretty good end; if Sean suddenly didn't use everything in his power to burst free, "LEGGO!" he pushes a couple of students aside, and then peers down at Roberto once more, a look that would burn holes if it were a laser!
"... H.. Hey, what are you doing man? The match is over!" one of the teamates says nervously, tugging him by arm to drag him back a couple of steps.. And Sean breaks free, once again towering over the goalie with wide-eyes, "Nah! Nah! He's gonna get back up!! He's gonna!" Sean insists, pointing accusingly.
And uh.. That's how that match ended.

COMBATSYS: Sean has ended the fight here.

[OOC] Roberto says, "That pose was worth getting hosed by the CSys."
