Aiming for a clean victory. [Hippogriff Chaser]

82.110.221.67 (XFF: 10.0.0.2)

The weather was windy and cold, but Lucy was confident of her team as she strode onto the Quidditch Pitch, her broom tucked under her arm. It was snowing but she'd thankfully told her team to cast a warming charm on their hands and a visibility charm on their faces as hopes to improve their state of play. Looking around the pitch, she exhaled nervously and tried to contain her butterflies as she shook the opposing Captains hand with as much force as she could. Her hand felt as though it was slowly being broke in ...Scott, was it? opposing hold. She matched his stare down with a blunt and icy one of her own before the two of them mounted their brooms and kicked off to rejoin their teams.

As she swerved into position, her bat was tossed to her and she grabbed it expertly from the air and swung it round in her hands, that were thankfully still warm, to get used to the weight and feel of the bat. Already Lucy could feel the tension building up in her body as around the stadium the cheers grew to fever pitch. She knew that the team they were playing, the Soaring Hippogriffs were one of the most brutal teams in the League and definitely the most daunting of opponents. However, she definitely had faith in her team and she knew for a fact that Hector, Gabriel and Mia wouldn't go down without a fight.

Before the Quaffle went up to signal the game, Lucy's gaze flicked around the pitch. Of course, she - along with possibly Elly - were going to be the primary targets for the Bludgers. Quite frankly, she thought that was a bit stupid to being aiming a bludger at another Beater. It'd be a little bit like tennis with a continual back and forth. However, if it got pressure off the Chasers then it was worth it. She just hoped that she'd be able to deliver a good performance as Captain. To gain a loss in her first match was not a good omen for the rest of the season. She crossed her fingers, as another Beater, Salas, sent a dirty look her way. In fact as she looked around, she noticed how male orientated the team was and how they dwarfed their team on size. She bit her lip. ...Maybe having a male beater would have been a good idea.

However, before she could debate this any further the Quaffle was released and the game began. As the bludgers headed off in opposite directions, Lucy noticed one being hit by Salas and sure enough it went speeding toward one of their Chasers. Another, was heading her way and she steadied herself, settling herself into the hit and swinging it downwards with as much force as possible toward the Hippogriff Chaser racing towards the Quaffle.
