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.
