Ben watched as his bludger successfully scare the smallest of the Aladren chasers off course, opening up a passing opportunity. He didn't watch to see if it was taken, but instead followed the passage of the bludger, which was going right to Louis. Ben went to guard Joella, as she was their strongest player as well as the one currently holding the Quaffle, but Louis went for Ingrid, once it became obvious that was who Joella was passing to. Ben didn't get there in time, but Ingrid managed a nice barrel roll to protect herself and Ben caught possession of the bludger before it could try for her again.

He batted it around for a little bit, waiting to see if there was going to be a good chance to protect Ingrid's pass, but it looked like she was going short and he didn't want to risk hitting either of the Pecaris in there, so instead he swung his bat around hard and smacked the bludger out toward a blue-clad chaser who didn't seem to be too dangerously close to anybody else and therefore a relatively easy target.

Ben wasn't really expecting this one to connect, as presumably the target chaser would see (and hear) it coming, but he was trying to time it so that the sound of the bat cracking against metal might potentially scare any Aladren trying to intercept Ingrid's pass, hopefully making them look around at that critical moment instead of going for the Quaffle.

    Match day was always exciting. Ingrid had always been driven to do her best for Liliana because she admired the older girl, and things hadnít changed with the passing of the torch. But as well as... more

        Ingrid managed to neatly avoid Louisís bludger and, whilst he was glad not to cause any injuries, this was Quidditch and Louis could be a rather competitive player. Ingridís barrel-roll meant his... more
        • Never underestimate a Pecari.Cpt Joella Curtis, Chaser, Sat Nov 26 18:29
          Joella could breathe again once Ingrid was safely on her way with the Quaffle. The younger girl did a good job of making the catch and dodging a bludger pretty much simultaneously. The captain sped... more

            Luke weaved through his hoops with ease, handling his broom so casually and confidently. He was a natural sportsman and he liked training hard so Quidditch worked out nicely for him. The first year... more

              Annoyingly, Joella had manoeuvred her way out of a nasty bludger accident (well, not that he was actually wishing bodily harm upon the older chaser), but at least Louisís actions had made sure she... more
