Gryffindor vs Ravenclaw

Gryffindor,RavenclawThis was the championship game. Whichever team won would get to call themselves the cup winners for the year, and he knew both teams wanted it. Gryffindor had been the champions for a few years running now, and he knew the other teams were eager for their opportunity. The day was beautiful, the sun shining brightly and the wind blowing just enough to make the air comfortable.

It didn't take Reeve long to set up, and the stands filled quickly in anticipation of the match ahead. As the teams came onto the field to warm up, it was to a chorus of cheers, boos, and everything in between. Reeve could feel the excitement in the air.

Jacob couldn't wait to get the game started. He was feeling good about today, feeling good about the team's chances of winning. They'd played well allseason, and he really hoped they could do this. The nerves he normally felt before games hit him more as he went onto the pitch to stretch. But now he knew he could get through the nerves. Jacob looked around for Lizzie while he stretched, wondering if she'd have any tips for him.

Tomas wasn't feeling all too well as he left the changing rooms. He could not screw up today's match because if they would lose it'd be because of him. He walked onto the field and walked towards where Jacob was stretching. Too nervous to talk, the Gryffindor nodded at the Beater and sat down on the bench, his leg shaking uncontrollably while he waited for the others to head this way.

Jemma was excited for the match today because she was actually going to have the opportunity to play. The captains had asked her to sub in as chaser, and she could hardly contain her excitement. While it wasn't her preferred position, she had learned from Lyra, who was an excellent chaser. The redhead made her way to the Gryffindor side of the pitch with her broom in hand. She wanted to show them all that she deserved to play. She nodded at Jake as he stretched, not interrupting him.

With the last game of the year upon them, Isaac hoped the blues would finally be able to take Gryffindor down from the peg they'd been on for a while. He enjoyed taking the time out to play the sport for his house, and changing he made his way across to the others, waiting to hear who would be playing in the match. He still hasn't really spoken to his captain much, but the boy seemed to be good at handling the group even if he, much like Isaac himself, kept in own space. Crossing his arms he waited to hear what everyone had to say.

Jess wasn't happy that she would be going through the whole year without playing, especially after she found out the alternate seeker would be subbing in as chaser. Jess made her way into the changing rooms to change into her scarlet robes and made her way out onto the pitch. She would be rooting for her team of course but she wasn't going to pretend to be happy that Jemma was playing over her.

Making her way onto the pitch, Lizzie took a deep breath of fresh air, pausing a moment to focus herself. With Ravenclaw the last obstacle between them and a rematch against Beauxbatons, Lizzie knew this was a match they had to win. Though her jealousy had faded over time, the insult of Elvira kissing someone else in front of her still stung, and she was determined to finally put the french team in their place. Just one more match to win first. Joining her teammates on the pitch, Lizzie paused to ruffle Jacob's hair, pleased that he was taking the time to stretch. "You got this kiddo." She said with an encouraging smile. "Remember to stay focused, we'll show 'em what we're made of." Lizzie looked up, directing her words of encouragement to the other younger players as well. She remembered how intimidating the pitch could be at their age, but Lizzie had seen them grow throughout the year, and knew Gryffindor had a strong team to be proud of. Hopefully it wouldn't be too long before these kids would get to enjoy their first real taste of the cup in their hands.

It would be a tense game as both teams were aiming to win the championship and Jackson was itching to play his part in his house winning the cup. Jackson made his way into the changing rooms where he quickly changed into his robes and made his way out onto the pitch and waited for the captain to give his speech.

The championship game was about to begin and Flavio was nervous. He and the rest of the Ravenclaw team had worked hard to get where they were, and a final win against Gryffindor with the addition of the chance to play beauxbatons closer to the end of the year would have been the perfect reward for their effort. When the team gathered and Flavio addressed them he fought his nerves knowing the team would continue to play their best, and tried to show how confident he was instead that they would be able to win if they put their minds to it. "Alright, this is crunch time everyone. I know that if we keep playing like we have in practices everything will turn out okay. Just focus on what you need to do and work hard." He nodded to the team members, then headed to the referee to hand over the line up. As confident as he was in the Ravenclaw team, Flavio did not feel the same amount of confidence in himself, but he wasn't going to let his worries hinder him from playing to the best of his ability to help the team achieve another win as well as the quidditch cup because he didn't want to let anyone down.​

The Quidditch pitch always felt bigger than October remembered, every time she stepped onto it. Though the year had been going well so far, a tiny, angry part of October that she was desperate to get rid of wouldn't stop whispering that she was overdue for a failure. The Gryffindor team seemed to like to play rough, and though April insisted they weren't that bad, October was still terrified at the thought of discovering what a bludger felt like. Nervous and unsure, October stood with the rest of the team silently, gripping her broom as she listened to Flavio's words of encouragement. She could only hope that he was right.

Elias wasn't expecting to play in the championship decider much like the rest of the season but he was still looking forward to watching his team win. Elias made his way into the changing rooms where he threw on his robes and made his way out onto the pitch.

Marisol exhaled as she stepped out onto the pitch. This was the last game of the semester which determined who'd be able to play against Beauxbatons at the end of the year. Gryffindor had been the ones to play against them for the past two years now, so she hoped they would be able to continue that. She felt a lot of pressure on her shoulders right now and she hoped she didn't look as anxious as she felt. But more than anything she was excited to get out there and play well. It had been a surprising season but she was so proud of her team and hoped they could continue their good streak.

Mari looked over the line up for today and had made some changes to it, thinking this might be good for them and then handed it in to the referee. Once she'd returned to her team she said, "Okay you guys have been playing well and training hard all semester for this moment. We're tied with Ravenclaw right now so aside from catching the snitch we also need to make sure to score more than Ravenclaw so we win the Cup," she said, looking at the younger Chasers with a small nod. "Let's do this!" she said cheerily, grinning at them excitedly, letting her nervousness turn into adrenaline.

Reeve reviewed the slips of parchment he had been given, making sure each player was present before slipping it away With the Sonorous charm already in effect, Reeve addressed the captains. "We discussed the rules earlier today. Please be advised you are responsible for ensuring your teams keep this game fair. Gryffindor, you'll be guarding the South hoops. Ravenclaw, you'll be guarding the North. Good luck to both of your teams. Now unless you have any questions, please return to your teams and get ready to fly."

Reeve released the bludgers and snitch watching as they both flew up and away. Picking up the quaffle, Reeve kicked off into the air. The referee 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.

The moment the quaffle was thrown Lizzie was ready, kicking off and shooting into the sky, chasing after one of the freed bludgers. She caught up with the ball and swung for it hard, watching as it sailed past the Ravenclaw seeker. Getting a hit so early in the game would have been nice, but hopefully she had at least managed to intimidate the girl.

Though there were butterflies swirling in her stomach, October's hands were steady and her mind was as clear as she could get it when the quaffle was thrown, and she kicked off at once, trying to follow the direction the snitch had gone when it was released. She had barely gotten away from the ground though when she felt a bludger shoot by her and jerked off course, startled.

As soon as Marisol was finished with her captain duties, she mounted her broom, ready for the game to begin. As soon as the whistle was blown, the Gryffindor shot into the air and quickly reached out for the quaffle, triumphantly tucking it under her arm as soon as she had it. She needed to score right away so they could be ahead once Tomas caught the snitch.

He let out a deep breath when the referee released the balls and mounted his broomstick as he waited for the whistle. As soon as it was blown, the Gryffindor kicked himself off the ground and started circling around the pitch in the hope to spot the tiny golden ball while doing so.

Jacob patted his hair back down after Lizzie ruffled it but smiled anyway. He was eager to get in the air and thankfully it didn't take long. As soon as he could, he found a bludger and gave it a good whack, sending it away from his teammates. Marisol had the quaffle and he wanted to help clear her a path.

With no bludgers nearby Lizzie kept an eye on the match, pleased to see Jacob keeping the way clear for Marisol. She looked away and flattened herself to her broom, sweeping around the pitch to get a clear idea of everything going on.

October took a few slow breaths to try and stay calm, continuing on in the direction she thought the snitch had flown when it was released, though October was disappointed not to see so much as a slight glimmer of gold.

He hadn't been this nervous for something before and the pressure both the team and he were under weren't exactly helping him focus on what he needed to do. Tomas continued to circle around the stadium, keeping a close eye on the other Seeker just in case she would spot it before he did.

Marisol glanced over her shoulder to make sure everything with her team was still going well so far, and then focused on the path ahead of her. In no time she reached the scoring area and threw the quaffle hard, grinning triumphantly as it sailed easily through. This was a good start, she just hoped they could finish strong as well.

Pulling her broom around, Lizzie spotted a bludger making its way across the pitch and shot after it, giving a rough swing as she drew close. The ball was moving a little faster than Lizzie anticipated though, and it spun wide of any other players, soaring high over the game. Cursing under her breath, Lizzie turned around and tried to pull herself together, casting her eyes over the rest of the game.

Doing her best to draw on the serenity and focus she felt when she danced, October kept her mind on her target, scanning the pitch for the snitch as she soared through the sky, trying to simply tune the rest of the game out all together.

He still hadn't seen the Snitch anywhere, which worried him because he really wanted to be the one catching it first. Tomas zigzagged through the other players, thinking that perhaps the tiny ball was flying somewhere in the middle of the pitch
