Thursday 10th June: Wolves v Phoenix
What an incredibly close game. From the first goal scored, it was back and forwards with goal after goal being scored at either end. Some great passing, blocking, and scoring by many many players. Snitch George kept both Seekers guessing, but eventually Seeker Noah just beat Seeker Zac to gain the tag and finish the game. Just in time too, as Wolves were about to score again, which could have tipped the game. The eventual score was a 210 to 200 win for Phoenix.
Tuesday 25th May: Wolves v Eagles
With a mighty wolf howl, the Wolves set their stall out from the first move! What a great match.

All players played their parts well with Beaters using a good range of tactics to foil the opposition. In the end, Wolves held on, and won the snitch, to finish the match with a comfortable 220 to 150 victory. Well done, Wolves.

A cold and blustery match, which ended as a cold, wet and blustery match saw Eagles eventually steal the win from Phoenix. There were some great saves by both Keepers, and many goals by Chasers and Keepers on both sides, along with some great passes, and stolen ball. However, Eagles took the match after a long battle by also catching the snitch, and winning by 250 to 190 points. A very high scoring match!
Thursday 13th May: Wolves v Eagles
The match was long and hard won. Many good goals were scored by both sides, with some excellent defending and passing.

In the end Seeker Zac gained the snitch, but meanwhile more goals had been scored leaving Eagles eventual winners. Well done to both teams, and friendly handshakes from all.
Wednesday 5th May: Wolves v Phoenix
What a tense and close match it was! Keeper Oliver and Chasers Ni-La, Daisy and Hubert scored the majority of the goals, with Keepers Flynn and Oliver blocking many more.

Thursday 29th April 2021: Eagles v Phoenix
It was a cold afternoon for Quidditch, following a hailstorm earlier in the afternoon. It was also a close match with both teams scoring highly. Chasers Hubert and George J gained several points for their teams with Chaser Daisy also scoring well. Keepers William and Flynn made some great saves, but in the end Seeker Noah snatched the snitch and closed the game. Final score was 160 to 110 to the Eagles.
Thursday 22nd April: Wolves v Phoenix
Goodness, what a high scoring match this was! Keeper Oliver and Chaser Ni-La played fantastically for Wolves, scoring most of their goals between them. For Phoenix, many players scored, notably Seeker Hubert. The match was fast paced and frenetic, to the extent of losing the quaffle over the fence at one point. Well done teams. At the end it was Seeker Hubert who caught the snitch resulting in a 180 to 110 point win to Phoenix.
Thursday 1st April: Phoenix v Eagles, Eagles v Wolves
Two fast and tight games were played tonight. In the first match, which lasted a full 30 minutes, Phoenix eventually gained the snitch winning the game by a mere 10 points. A total of 38 goals were scored, with many others being saved on both sides. What a fabulous match. The game moved across the whole pitch (and sometimes off it too). All players played superbly. Well done, everyone.
In the second match an already tired Eagles team outplayed the Wolves. The goals were 16 to 10, but with Seeker William also gaining the Golden Snitch, his team won by 190 to 100. Again, goals were scored by many team members, with Keeper Finley scoring at least once by running unchallenged the length of the pitch. A great evening was had by everyone. One linesman complaining that there was nothing for him to do as everyone was playing fairly and safely. What a wonderful tribute to all players!
Wednesdsay 17th March: Wolves v Phoenix
Wolves played Phoenixes with a couple of needed substitutions due to illness. It was a fast moving, exciting match with great passing, goal scoring and saving. A notable caught save from the half way line was down to Keeper Flynn, with various players on both sides scoring. Both Seekers kept a close eye on the Snitch, but eventually Seeker Mignon took advantage of Seeker Aniya's brief look behind to run in and catch the Snitch. Wolves, therefore, beat Phoenix by 80 points to 30.
Thursday 11th March: Eagles v Wolves
On a very cold and blustery day, the Eagles took on the Wolves, with both teams a man down. A fast match ensued with both teams scoring several goals, and Keeper Finley (for the Eagles) saving the goal which would have levelled the teams on 40 points each. Once the Golden Snitch (this week played by Hubert) came on, it was not long before Seeker William narrowly beat Seeker Mignon in claiming the snitch and the 30 additional points. This gave Eagles a 70 to 30 point win. Well done, Eagles, and well played, Wolves.
