Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff

Gryffindor,HufflepuffThe game was a rematch of the final game of the previous season, which made it quite exciting for Reeve. The first game of the season was an exciting one as well, a hard fought victory by the Ravenclaw team who put a relatively new team on the field. He wondered what these teams would look like and how they'd perform.

It didn't take Reeve long to set up the field, making sure school brooms were available for those who didn't have their own. The stands filled quickly in anticipation of the match ahead. Fairly soon, all that was left for Reeve was to wait for the captains so he could begin the match.

This game was going to be particularly tense for Geo. It was her first as a full member of the team, and while she had played with most of Hufflepuff last year it was certainly a step up. Of course, James wouldn't be against them this time and she knew April was an excellent seeker, so the fourth year was excited and anxious that they may be able to take the title from the reds this time round. Once she was geared up, she took her new broom down to the pitch to meet the others, and waited for the game to start.

Austin was excited for the new season, he and Geo had practiced a lot in the first few weeks of the semester so he felt ready. He changed into his robes in the changing room and made his way out onto the pitch to wait for the game to start.

Happy as Arvel was to have made the Quidditch team, even if only as an alternate, a significant part of him still wished it was Analei holding the broom instead. He wouldn't have even tried out if he'd known he would get a place and she wouldn't. Walking out onto the pitch made him feel guilty, and a bit sick, though he tried to distract himself from thoughts of whether Analei was watching by saying hello to Geo. He would be on the bench soon enough, he was sure, and to be honest, that suited him fine. Flying was the most amazing feeling in the whole world, but he couldn't enjoy anything feeling like he'd robbed his best friend of her own dream.

Ares was nervous for his first match of his final year at school. He just felt a little overwhelmed with it all. He didn't know if this was going to go well, he wanted it to, but if it would be another matter. He looked at his team, quite proud of how far it had come. They were a good bunch. He was proud of them. They'd been practicing well, they'd been working hard. The captain knew they would give this game all they could and they had the advantage of having a seeker who had shown herself to be a great player. He stood in front of them and gave a smile, "Alright puffs, we can do this!" he assured them before heading to the referee handing the man his line up and then heading back to the team. They would do well, he had full faith.

Chasers - Ethan Mendoza, Ares Jeffreys (Captain), Geo Volt

Jacob Kingsley was trying his best to not hyperventilate as he put his game uniform on for the first time and tightened his prescription goggles on his face. The twelve year old didn't know what Merrill or Marisol had seen in him to make him a starter. He was too young! Surely they'd made a mistake of some kind. His hands fumbled on the laces of his shoes and then before he knew it he was on the pitch, not exactly sure how he'd arrived with his broom in tow. Jacob took a deep breath and then another. Everything looked bigger, the Hufflepuffs across the way looked meaner, and everything just seemed too much. Jacob didn't know if he could do this.

Pacing back and forth, the Gryffindor started biting his nails while he waited for the match to start. He couldn't remember the last time he had been this nervous about something - the Sorting Ceremony seemed a lot more fun compared to this. He was so sure that he was going to screw this up for the entire team that he felt like he could throw up at any moment now.

April was ready for this game. Sure, she was a little nervous, but mostly she felt like she would be able to do this. Even though she was new as the team's permanent seeker, she had a few games of experience under her belt already. April had won matches before, though she had lost a few as well. Two of those recent losses had been against Gryffindor, so she was eager to win this game. As she waited, she hopped up and down slightly, eager to get started. She peered up at the stands curiously, wondering if her father and October were watching the match together. But soon the captain started to speak, and April looked over at him. He didn't say much, just encouraged them. That was plenty, though, and April gave him a big smile. April knew she could do this. The only thing she worried a little about were the Gryffindor beaters. Mostly Lizzie, the older and more experienced one. She had gotten April into the hospital wing a few too many times now.

Being on the team as an alternate was still as important to Lavinia as if she were on the team with a permanent position. Although alternates didn’t get to play as much during matches, they could replace anyone during any game if needed so the fact that her role could be unexpected was exhilarating. She met her team down to the pitch once she arrived and despite having to sit on the bench she felt pumped for today. She knew the puffs could totally ace this. She was going to cheer for them with everything she had.

Frankie was completely pumped for the match against Hufflepuff today - it was the first time she would be attending as a full member of the team, and the fact that today's game was against the one team she had managed to face last year boded well. Positive thoughts, she repeated to herself, feeling the sense collect in her chest and move out towards her shoulders. We can do this. As she walked across the pitch to stand with the rest of her teammates, Frankie wondered if Gabby was watching in the stands somewhere. Though she wouldn't be upset if her sister decided to cheer for her own house's team instead - it would only make sense.

The sting of being passed over for captain had barely eased with time, and Lizzie was uncharacteristically silent as she made her way onto the pitch with the rest of the team, only sparing a moment to give her new co-beater a reassuring pat on the shoulder. She didn't have it in her to listen to speeches or hang around, she just wanted the game to start already, to lose herself in the action and forget her troubles. Hanging back from the rest of the team Lizzie held her broom in one hand and her bat in the other, waiting for the game to start.

Lauryn woke up early that morning to let Kira braid her hair. She had to disturb the portrait just to let Kira know she was there. Yes, she can be annoying to her best friend but it was game day and she didn't want hair all over her face if she ever get to play. Wide smile, she came down to the pitch after breakfast with her Quidditch uniform already on her. The Hufflepuff second year waved at her teammates wondering where their keeper is at. She didn't want to think ill about her but it was her chance. Lauryn looked out for her friends in the stands nearby her, she hadn't seen them yet.

Gabriel was ready for this game. They had won last year and he hoped that they would do that this year too. Gabriel was very happy with the fact that he could play as a chaser. It was more something for him. The drive to try and score and the game element. As beater he had trouble with his sister about how their mother died. Gabriel could understand Sofia a bit, but he never would stop with Quidditch. It was one of the few things he did like so she had to live with it. Perhaps him being a chaser would let her want to see the game step by step. Gabriel loved his sister, but now he would focus on the game. As he entered with his broom inside his hand he smiled. He was glad that a boy joined his team, it was Jacob a younger boy. He hoped the boy would do good with Lizzie. But he hoped he would do good himself as a chaser too. Gabriel smiled at the team and waited for the captain's speech. Looking at Frankie for a minute, she did good last year and was glad to play with her.

Therese made her way to the game. She was excited for her very first game She couldn't believed it when they made her the new keeper. Therese always enjoyed quidditch, and now she would be a part of it. The brunette knew she had to play to gryffindor. It was a good team, but she figured they were too. Theu had April her good friend who was being a good seeker she figured. And James was gone, so they had a chance perhaps. Therese was all positive and hoped to have a good team. With her broom in her hand she walked towards her team and waved at the team members. Most of them were friends and some were from her year too. Therese had to play against Gabriel her cousin. It would be fun to stop his goals, but she hoped her cousin would do good too on the other hand. She knew how much quidditch ment for him. Therese cared for others, but she was today in a game mood and wanted to let her house win.

Marisol walked up to the Quidditch pitch feeling more nervous than she usually did for Quidditch games. They were facing Hufflepuff whom they'd beaten in the final match but this year's teams were different so this early in the year it could be anyone's game. The Gryffindor looked over the line up for her team with a hard set face and then handed it over to the referee. She was still adjusting to the role of a captain so she realized she had to give them all a pep talk. She walked over to her team and flashed them an encouraging grin. "Everyone on this team is a damn natural, so there's no way we're not winning this," she told them genuinely, hoping it would assure the newer players on the team, and reassure the older players that they still got this. Then she mounted her broom, ready to take off into the air already.

Chasers - Marisol Woods (Co-captain), Frankie Tillington, Gabriel Rosenberg

Although they'd lost against Gryffindor before, it was a brand new year and Ethan was hopeful they could win the Cup this time around. If not the cup then at least this game. Gryffindor had a bunch of new players and now April was officially their Seeker and she saw awesome, so he felt more confident in his team than ever. The Hufflepuff walked out onto the field and listened to his captain's brief words and then gave April an encouraging thumbs up before getting ready for the game to begin.

Reeve waited for the captains to arrive and then began to review the line ups. Determining that they were in order, Reeve placed the pieces of parchment into his pocket and then spoke, his voice carrying to the crowd thanks to the Sonorous charm he'd placed on himself a bit earlier. "Don't forget the rules we discussed earlier today. I expect a clean game. Hufflepuff, you'll be guarding the South hoops. Gryffindor, you'll be guarding the North. Best of luck to both of you. Now, please return to your teams and get ready to fly."

Releasing the snitch first and then the bludgers, Reeve ducked as a bludger shot straight over his head to make its ascent. Quickly enough, he headed to his broom with the quaffle tucked under his arm. Kicking off into the air, Reeve flew up until he was in position and then moved the quaffle to his hands. "Game on!" the man yelled as he tossed the quaffle into play.

As soon as the ref's whistle blew, Frankie darted straight towards the Quaffle he had thrown into the air. She caught it easily and scooped it under her arm, heading straight to the Hufflepuff goals. There was a large grin on her face as she did - she was so ready for her team to have an awesome game today.

As soon as the match started, April shot into the air. She wanted, no, needed to find the snitch as fast as she could. She had to win now, for her team. She didn't pay attention to the quaffle, zooming off to circle the pitch for any sign of the snitch.

Ares flew up into the air when he was supposed to. He lined himself up and watched as the quaffle was thrown up into the air. He instantly urged his broom forward the moment that he could and flew in to catch the ball as it flew back down but was beaten to it by one of the gryffindor chasers.

Tomas took a deep breath when the referee blew his whistle and mounted his broomstick, kicking himself off the ground and into the air. This was going to be it. It was now or never.

Geo was more than ready for the game to start. She gave a brief knowledgement to Austin, although not wanting to get too carried away and instead focus on the game, she only briefly gave his hand a small squeeze before mounting her broom and heading out into the skies. As soon as the whistle was blown, Geo raced forward but missed out just slightly as the other Chaser got there first. She instantly started to trail her, following the girl down the pitch.

Marcos was very surprised when he actually was put on to the team, it seemed odd that the co-captain wouldn't be the one to play in this game, but he got himself to the right goal and watched with pleasure as at least the ball wouldn't come towards him first.

Lizzie was relieved when the match finally started and kicked off, ready to take her frustration out on the bludgers. She shot straight for the one that had gone over the referee's head and swung at it, hoping to get an early hit on Hufflepuff's seeker, but the ball was moving too fast in its excitement to be free and she missed entirely, scowling as she righted herself on her broom.

Jacob found Lizzie's pat reassuring, which was great, because the speech from Marisol he did not. He didn't feel like a natural. A natural wouldn't feel like vomiting all over the grass. Still, he hopped on his broom and pushed off, a little wobbly, as the ref began the game, beater's bat in hand. Jacob raced for a bludger and smacked it, hoping to hit one of the Chasers, but watching as it soared past her and into the Hufflepuff Keeper, Therese he believed was her name. He grinned, happy to have hit someone.
