Gaby took her lap around the pitch and made sure to check if Ares was alright when he got hit with another bludger before circling back towards the hoops. Once she got close enough she chucked the quaffle at the centre one, pleased when it went through again. At the same time though, she hoped the ilvermorny chasers wouldn't be as succesful during the game as she had been so far during practice.
Ava noticed a bludger nearby and swung her bat at the person closest to her. She grimaced when that person was @Élise Moreau though, shooting her an apologetic smile. Perhaps she should be paying a bit more attention to who she was sending bludgers flying towards.
Gemma nearly missed the bludger coming her way until it was right in front of her. She was able to react in time and hit the ball towards their newest beater. She had been doing well and Gemma figured she could handle it. @Ava Hastings
Watching Gemma continue to knock bludgers around, Aramis found it funny to realize how long some of them had been on the team already. It felt like yesterday he'd tried out for the first time and now Gemma was out knocking heads with the new crop of players.
Ava had been happily flying after another bludger to hit when something collided with her. She hadn't ever been hit before and it wasn't exactly what she had expected it to be like but she tried her best to play it off. She was sending bludgers flying to other people after all, so she should be able to deal with getting hit herself. Even if it hurt quite a lot.
As Ares was hit with yet another bludger, he groaned again, clutching his side as he suddenly grew a lot more frustrated. He brushed off some concerned looks and just continued to push on, not knowing whether or not he would be able to take another hit. He watched as Gaby scored again, and then flew down to collect the quaffle as it was thrown back out.
Aramis let out an amused huff as Amelie flew past, nodding vaguely. "You're welcome to catch the quaffle for a bit instead if you like," he said, tilting his broom a bit to keep an eye on Ares as he took the quaffle.
Gemma was content to pull back for a bit but when she saw a bludger coming her way she couldn't pass it up. She swung and made contact with the ball but her target moved at the last minute and missed at the last second.
