Quidditch Correspondent Ginny Potter (J.K. Rowling) reported the game for the Daily Prophet on Pottermore.com.
The match’s most memorable moment was when one team’s seeker unsuccessfully performed the Wronski Feint, leading to the arrival of Healers onto the pitch. The Pottermore Insider explains the Feint as “a move where a Seeker hurtles towards the ground, pretending to have seen the Snitch, pulling up at the very last minute. It is intended to make the opposing Seeker copy them and crash.” In this occasion, however, the seeker failed to pull out in time and collided with the ground at a sixty miles per hour speed. Potter reports though that the seeker will make a full recovery.
Eleven minutes after the seeker was taken off the pitch, one team prevailed and the snitch was caught.
Starting on Wednesday, Pottermore will be releasing the author’s reports on the quarter final round of the Cup. A report on Brazil’s game with the victor of the Germany-Wales game will be released on Wednesday, and the other articles will be released throughout the next week. You can predict who will win the quarter final round here on the Pottermore Insider.
Correction: An earlier edition of this article reported that the Wales and Germany game was the ninth match of the round, but it was eighth. We apologize for our misinformation.
