Quidditch World Cup
November 14, 2010 by Post Team
Penn State came away with a win 70-30 by the more physical challenge from NYU yet.
Frequent stoppage caused by tackles and field struggling for Quaffle for a choppy game, but NYU persevered.
“Our team does not play very physical. It’s not really our style, “says drummer rookie Luke Bean.”We tend to play defensively.”
NYU had an early start unexpectedly, when he discovered the game moments before it begins. Hipster Horcruxes had originally been scheduled to face Villanova half an hour later, but an error in programming for NYU had to start earlier than expected.
“We were not tight enough and we were not sufficiently warmed up,” sophomore captain Sarah Landis said. “I think that came into our heads.”
The game was tied at 30 when the Golden Snitch came to play, which means one who caught it advances to the next round. The applicant for NYU has come close several times, narrowly missing the Snitch he kept throwing.
After several minutes, Penn State finally returned with the Snitch, seizing the Snitch fell to the ground. NYU attempted to contest the appeal, arguing that the catches were made with the cookie already on the ground, but in vain. The referees met to discuss the appeal and concluded that Penn State won the game fairly.
The runway at the World Cup may be over, but Landis Quidditch think NYU has a bright future.
“Our team played great. We have so much there,” she said. “We arrived at the second day and it’s not something we planned.”
Landis also hopes that the success of NYU in the World Cup could cause the University to consider. The team is still fighting for club status and funding will be important if they hope to send to travel to other schools to play in tournaments.
The next step for the Horcruxes will Hipster countless hours of practice before traveling to hope either Penn State or commitment to a tournament in the coming months.
The team, not even two months, also includes the potential for the future of the World Cup.
“If that’s what we can do with a month and a half of practice, imagine what we could do with a year,” said Bean.
And the enthusiasm is high for a young team that relies heavily on underclassmen.
“Nobody wants to leave and nobody is going to do,” said Landis.
