With the quaffle on him, Tyler didn’t give a backward glance knowing very well that his team would have him covered. His one aim was to score and while he may not have the advantage of performing in his home field, it didn’t really matter. The cheering from the crowd was all drowned out by the wind that made a swooshing sound as he picked up speed. The goal post was closer, Tyler hoping that he would be fast enough to make that aim.

And when he was close enough, within the shot, he aimed for it!

You gotta give them to the Bat. It took Jace years after graduation due to training and testing to become a part of the league so it was surprisingly strange to see them directly in the championship at such a young age. It was beyond his comprehension! But they good and giving them a hella tough time. He gave Rockwell a thumbs up as he stopped the goal from scoring, throwing the quaffle towards Tyler. Jace followed closely on his tail but not so close in case the opposition team blocked it or chased it away. Brady was following up closely and he had his hopes up as his uncle reached close to the goals and he thought it was going to be a goal!

If this was so easy, it wouldn’t be league championships. It was so close but the keeper blocked it! Jace cursed internally but he turned back the same time, moving towards their own goal and their chasers.

Carina could hear the crowd going loud and quiet and loud again in irregular waves, reflecting whatever was happening on the rest of the pitch. When the Kestrel stands started screaming, she was all too tempted to glance over and see what was happening, but she couldn't let herself be distracted. She wasn't a spectator; she was the Seeker. She just had to trust that the cheers meant that things were going well. As she followed the trail of the snitch, she tried to get closer, but then the blasted little golden ball abruptly came to a halt and started flying in the opposite direction. Carina did her best to stop her broom as quickly as she could, but the snitch flew under her arm, and though she let go of her broom for a moment in a chaotic attempt to grab it, it zipped away, up towards the Kestrel stands. With a huff, she grabbed her broom handle again and flew up above the crowd.

Astrid flew with Alec towards the other side of the pitch in an attempt to steal the quaffle back from the other team’s chaser. All the chasers flew towards the Bats’ side of the pitch and she flew close to Alaric. They were trying to see what the other chasers will do but as expected, they immediately went for the goal and thankfully, Alec was there to block them from scoring a goal. Arianna was also there to protect their keeper from being knocked out of the game and leaving their hoop unprotected. Astrid cheered and flew towards Alec and caught the quaffle he threw at her. Once the quaffle was in her hand, she motioned towards Alaric and Tyler B. to tell them what tactic she wants to do based on where the other chasers were on the pitch. The redhead flew towards the other side of the pitch to try to get the quaffle through that hoop for the first goal of the game.

Bats Chaser vs Kestrels Keeper 

1. If Bats chaser answers first: he/she gets a goal.

2. If Kestrels Keeper answers first: The keeper blocks the attempt and the quaffle will be in Kestrels possession again.

3. My next update is tomorrow morning, 9AM EST.

 

Question: In Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald movie, Newt left a note to Bunty. What should Bunty give to Patrick?

The Quaffle was back with the Bats and just like the beginning they were flying back towards their goalpost. Jace was the closest to that side so he didn’t waste anytime but to fly back towards them. He had decent hopes on their keeper who would possibly stop the goal from occurring as the other chaser seemed to be aiming for the same as they had before. It was becoming a simply game of catch and score, traditional but quick. Samja-Hyun was there before, protecting the keeper and Jace kept close hoping to retrieve the quaffle back. However, she was close to the goal and aimed for it. For a moment silence fell in the stadium anticipating the goal but a roar erupted from the Kestrels as Rockwell once again stopped it. Jace grinned at their keeper who was on the top of his game. He threw the quaffle back towards them, Jace snatching it this time around, taking a detour to get the opposition chasers off his tale as he made his way for the goal post.

Astrid was soaring like a bird through the air with the quaffle tucked under her arm safely. She saw a bludger coming towards her and she immediately ducked to avoid it from cracking her skull. Her green eyes narrowed and focused on the three hoops on the other side of the pitch and her one goal at that moment: to get the quaffle through one of those hoops. Her hands gripping her broom in one and the quaffle in another, she angled her broom up so she flew a little higher than the other chasers and she can easily angle herself down in a way that would give her the best chance at a goal. Looking sideways to make sure that there were no surprises coming her way, she angled her broom downwards, letting gravity help her with her shot.

Bats Keeper: A bludger is heading your way and you tried to dodge. You may decide what will happen after. 

Bats Beater: You see the bludger heading towards your Keeper. What will you do? You're in the middle of the quidditch field.

Kestrels Beater: You saw a bludger heading your teammate's direction and you swung your bat, hitting it and leading it towards the Bats crowd dangerously fast. What will you do?

Seekers: The snitch has moved on and is now flying dangerously close to the ground. What will you do?

Alex was flying around the pitch. His eyes were dark blue with determination as he searched for a golden snitch. Like it usually did, the captain in him is warring against the Seeker. Independent from nearly everyone else in the game, it was hard to simply focus on yourself and your role when you're also concerned for the rest of your team. Alex can feel his own heartbeat in his ears in tune with the cheers on the north side of the stands. With every rise of the noise it soars and with every fall it crashes. He spared the pitch a glance and caught the quaffle getting stolen from one of his own—

 

There was a faint little sparkle in the corner of his eye. It was small but it was familiar, and he was quickly in pursuit. Alex swerved then was in hot pursuit. Speeding across the pitch, chasing after the glimmer… when he suddenly realized it was closer toward the ground. This made him grunt in annoyance but he quickly acted. Shifting his grip on his Firebolt Supreme, he angled it downwards and took nosedive. Alex stretched one hand toward it but it was far and he was careening toward the ground fast! He mentally cussed in every dialect he can speak. He was closing in, on both the snitch and the ground, but the snitch circled to another direction suddenly and he gasped as he pulled up to stop himself from… well, dying. Or becoming a splatter of humanity on the ground. It took every ounce of strength to go against the wind, to go against gravity and to suddenly change direction. There was even a little popping sound in his ears as he pulled up, but he managed. He managed to avert that crisis with a deep sigh of relief but didn't waste any time and he continued to pursue the snitch as it flew across the pitch once more.

Alaric made a sharp turn to go after Tyler J as soon as the guy got the quaffle from their Keeper. He leaned down to gain speed so he’s flying beside him that he almost bump to him. He also noticed their beater Arianna saved Alec from that incoming bludger which is awesome! Tyler tried for the goal, but Alec was able to counteract and stopped the quaffle from entering their hoops. He cheered and grinned at their Keeper before following Astrid as soon she got back the possession of the quaffle. Hearing the plan, he gave her a curt nod and flew toward the other side of the pitch together with Tyler B. As soon as they reached the opponent’s side, Astrid threw the quaffle, but it was stopped by their Keeper again. Alaric groaned in annoyance, that would have been epic opportunity to score but their keeper is also good, he will give him that. The quaffle’s possession was back to Kestrels and Alaric went after their Chaser, Jason.

Kate followed Tyler being a guard beater to ensure he will be able to score. But, his shot was blocked. Kate sighed now its time for them to follow and hope that they will get the Quaffle again. She fly fast towards their keeper and to help protect the keeper. It was a very far fly but she trained herself to really fly fast that she was able to reach their goal before the others. It would really be bad if they have no Keeper to keep the hoops safe. She keep an eye on any bludgers around. When the Bats tried to score their keeper blocked it. 
 
Jason got the quaffle again from their keeper. She fly again supporting their chaser. As they reached the half of the court near the north side. She saw the bludger heading Jason's direction. She quickly flew and swung her bat towards the bludger and boom! That was saved but. She noticed that the direction of the Bludger was towards the Bats crowd. /Damn. Bad direction. Here goes nothing/ She hold tight to her broom. Flying as fast as she could her eyes beaming at the bludger in high speed. Her heart was beating fast. Of all people she doesn't want anyone harmed too. She chased the bludger. She was convincing herself as she fly faster and faster meeting the bludger speed. /Just like what Jay taught... faster Kate.. focus/ She needs to fly like a seeker to be able to out speed the bludger. She focused on her speed and she outrun the bludger by 3 meters before it reached the Bats Crowd and hit the Bludger again towards the Bats beater and away from the Bats crowd. /phew.. that was scary/.  She rapidly went near the place where the Bats goal are and continued to stay alert and check if their team will be able to score.

Tyler had aimed for a perfect shot but had missed it! The chase was on once more with the quaffle snatched by the Bats Chaser who moved speedily towards the Kestrels goal hoops. Tyler took a sharp cut, following in the lead of Jace who was the closest. The girl was fast, reaching towards their goal posts and for a moment he thought she had scored. But Tyler knew Rockwell better and how handy he was, keeping the quaffle at bay. The boy pushed caught it fluently, throwing it back to Jace. Jace raced towards their goal post, Tyler and Brady closed in to prevent the others from getting through. With the others closing in on Jace, he shot the quaffle towards Tyler who caught it smoothly and sped towards the Bats keeper. Aligning himself towards the left goal hoop, he found the perfect aim and without a second thought shot at it.

The game was in full-swing and tides are changing fast. Now that he's proven he's needed, his whole being refused to settle. The adrenalin was rushing in his veins now and it made him antsy. No sooner had his other teammates seized the quaffle when it was stolen once again. Hence, Alec once again got ready to defend the goals. On the corner of his eye, he saw their captain attempting a dangerous stunt that made him nervous as he watched—but he can't get distracted now. Tearing his gaze off the man (he can take care of himself), his gaze went back on the pitch as the chasers started to close in.

Flying above the crowd, it was hard to discern where the snitch was. There were a lot of shiny things in the crowd, catching the sunlight from above and glinting along her peripherals. People had purses with zips, binoculars, and whatever flashy flags on their person. Some people had clips in their hair or metallic headbands, and so her hunt up here wasn't going to be very fruitful. Her attention was momentarily diverted as the crowd beneath her went berserk, and upon glancing out at the pitch, she broke into a grin. They'd scored! Even more reason to triumphantly catch the snitch. They had the lead, but the snitch could change everything. She did not intend to let it fall into the Bats' clutches. Below, she spied the Bats Seeker zipping downward before abruptly pulling up. There seemed to be a moment of confusion before the man changed course. Carina angled her broom down and sped off towards him.
