Lysander raced after a bludger, swinging his bat to try and hit one of the Gold players, though it spiralled off course and hit @Sierra Woodlock. He sucked air through his teeth, giving her an apologetic wave.
Chloë was happy to see Sully score a goal, cheering him on for a second. "Wooo, go Sul!" Without the snitch team scarlet was obviously still around 130 points behind team gold, but team chaser did seem to be getting closer to team beater. She cast a quick glance around to see if Knox would be able to catch the quaffle, but noticing she was closer Chloë caught it herself when their keeper threw it back out and moved away from the hoops.
As Chloë made her way around the pitch she tried her best to keep the quaffle safe and keep the chasers for team gold behind her. When she got close enough to the hoops again she decided to go for the right hoop this time, smiling as the quaffle found its way through the hoop. She wasn't sure whether she was on a roll or if she was just having luck, but she didn't really mind because she was doing well and that was all that matters. Also, if she was not mistaken team beater had managed around eight hits so far and the chasers now had seven goals, so they were definitely closing in.
willow was getting tired. it had been ages since they had taken to the air. "Can we get a drink break cap'n" she called maybe a refresh would also help restart her focus. she had dont better at the start of the match than she was doing now.
Chloë was a quick flyer and clearly a great chaser and Sully grinned as she cheered for him before scooping up the quaffle. He followed her close, hoping to try and grab it before she could make another amazing shot, but he was just too slow. Grabbing the quaffle, Sully tried to reposition to see if he could pass to Noel or get in his own good shot. He had a lot of catching up to do now that he'd finally scored.
Lysander raced forward and swung his bat at another bludger, though yet again his aim was off, and it flew into @Knox Ivers. He frowned. He was glad to be hitting something, but his own Scarlet teammates were not it.
Chloë sped off after Sully as soon as he caught the quaffle, trying to up the game a little and make it hard for him to pass to Noel if he wanted to. Despite her wanting to keep up with the team gold chasers as they moved around she couldn't help but to slow down when Knox got hit by a bludger, watching him to see if he was alright.
Willow paused hovering in mid air. she floated and closed her eyes counting to ten ans lisrneinf to the noises around her trying to focus she wasnt expecting to hear the snitch but s long as she didnt hear a bludger being hit her way she was fine. but maybe a moment of calm would help her find the elisive ball.
Though her side was still incredibly sore, Sierra's eyes caught sight of the golden snitch hanging out close by. Pushing the pain aside for a minute, Sierra zoomed forward, chasing the snitch around for a minute before finally closing her fist around the little ball. With a sigh of relief, Sierra showed that she had also caught the snitch, even though she had been hit! It was a good feeling, even if her side was sore. After she was sure it had been seen, Sierra let the golden ball go again, closing her eyes so she didn't see where it went.
Chloë cheered when Sierra caught the snitch, meaning team scarlet had now taken over the lead from team gold. It also meant that the competition was definitely back on. She increased speed as she moved up to Sully, stealing the quaffle away from under his grip. "Game on!" She shot him a smile as she looked back for a second to see his reaction, before speeding of with the quaffle now in her possession.
Knox cheered when Chloe managed to score, pleased that his pass to her had been worth it. He soon focused back on the game, following Sully who caught the quaffle again to fail another attempt at a score, and then following Chloe who had possession after that. She also didn’t manage to score again, and Sully had another chance to scoop up the quaffle and then successfully throw it through one of the hoops. When Chloe caught the quaffle again, Knox followed near her in support, cheering again when Chloe managed another goal. Knox swerved to follow Sully who again caught the quaffle, but with the sudden and painful impact of a bludger in his side he found himself spinning off course. Shaking his head and wincing, Knox steadied himself, taking in a deep breath before resuming his pace behind Sully and smiling when Chloe soon managed to intercept and steal the quaffle. He swerved to follow behind Chloe in case she needed to pass to him, not that it would do much good when he was in pain from the recent bludger hit.
Chloë had been debating whether or not she should pass the quaffle to Knox after she managed to steal it from Sully. She wanted to, she wanted to be a team player, but they were so close to the hoops and her teammate had just been hit that she didn't know whether passing would be their best option. As a teamplayer she also had to think of what might be best for the team right? Chloë decided not to pass to him to give him a moment to catch his breath after getting hit and went for the throw herself, but that didn't end up doing much good either as their keeper caught it. She gave a little shrug as she flew back in position, determined to let Knox have the next try when they got the quaffle again.
Willow heard a cheer and saw Sierra has the snitch. thank merlin that showed up. I was starting to wonder where it had gone she said giving the girl a high five. She watched as the mall flew off realising that this made the two teams more even she Hasn’t been keeping track of the chasers but they must be close. Maybe even her team was Behind she had to try harder to catch out again.
Caught up looking for Noel, Sully had to laugh when Chloë managed to steal the quaffle out from under him, chasing off after her. He tailed her closely, determined to try and steal it back, especially when it looked like she was aiming to pass.
Jacob pulled up, stopping his broom so he was hovering and nodded. "Good idea, Wills. Everyone grab a drink and then we'll do a few speed drills and call it to an end. Good work so far, guys. The season is going to be great I can feel it. I want three speed laps around the pitch from everyone so you decide if you want to push through or break and then finish them."
