Quidditch Chaos

Quidditch has always been our communities past time, we all grew up playing in our neighborhoods, and we cheered on our house teams at school, but when does being a fan go from healthy to hazardous?
Security wizards were deployed in attempts to contain a brawl that broke out this weekend in the stands of a Puddlemere United match against the Holyhead Harpies.

The Harpies hosted Puddlemere for the first time in 20 years after yet another brawl ensued when a Puddlemere chaser disappeared in the middle of the match. The League has issued the following statement in reaction to the incident.

“We have tried to ensure the safety of the public by not allowing these two teams to face each other in competition for the last few decades. We see now that was likely the cause of such high tensions during this fateful match up. We regret the incident and will be increasing security at all further matches for the remainder of the season and if these two teams are to face each other again in the playoffs, the security will rival that of the world cup itself.”

The League declined to make further comment on the brawl, but here is what we know.

The match was slow to start, with zero fouls issued during the first hour of the game, but when a Puddlemere beater sent a bludger at the Harpies keeper when the quaffle was not in play near the goals, turmoil erupted in the stands. Several cross words were exchanged between these teams fans before someone from the Puddlemere side shoved a Harpies fan. The tussle became so severe that play was halted in the air and the referees ordered players to the ground until security was able to break up the fighting in the stands.

Bystanders with a birds eye view of the incident stated that it seemed to be a yelling match, but someone in the back of the Puddlemere queue lost their footing and fell into the person in front of them, causing several others to surge forward, the fan in front ultimately seeming to shove the Harpies fan. What transpired afterwards left several spectators with minor wounds, most of which were treated on site by the healers hired to oversee the players, only two spectators were transported to St. Mungo’s for treatment.

After play resumed Puddlemere was victorious over the Harpies with a final score of 550-210.

    HolyHead Harpies! and I agree with WATERMELONJUICE POTTER, if my Aunt was playing the HolyHead Harpies would’ve won

  • We would have won if I were still playing for the team. Its ridiculous all these brawls.

    Thanks WILHEMINA RABAJACKE for wishing I was still in the team. I send lots of hugs.

  • Saying that this game was a fair match would be an outrage. Seeing as a beater hit a bludger at the Harpies keeper while the quaffle was nowhere near the goal posts, you can assume that the game is definitely not being played according to the rules. I was watching the match from in the stands and as far as I can remember, there was lots of quarrels between the two opposing teams and their fans. Of course, I hadn’t wanted to argue with anyone as the people around me were getting violent. Now, from reading the comments, I think if Mrs. Potter had been there, would there have been a difference? From my thoughts, I suppose not. The fighting would not have a difference from Mrs. Potter’s presence though the chances of the Harpies winning the match could be different. In conclusion, I’d say this match was of one of my least favourites.
