Hufflepuff was defeated by Gryffindor. Severus Snape refereed the match, and despite Snape's biased refereeing Harry Potter caught the Golden Snitch within five minutes and won the game for Gryffindor.[3]

Hufflepuff only got to play Ravenclaw. The Quidditch Cup was canceled due to attacks on Muggle-born students.

1993–1994 school year


Hufflepuff vs Gryffindor in 1993

The Slytherin versus Gryffindor match was re-scheduled, so Gryffindor played Hufflepuff first. It was the first game for Hufflepuff's new captain and Seeker, Cedric Diggory. The game was played in extremely poor weather conditions, and both teams sported their goggles for the first time. At one point during the match, Gryffindor led by fifty points, but when both Seekers spotted the Snitch, a group of Dementors entered the stadium and caused Gryffindor Seeker, Harry Potter, to fall off his broom and plummet to the earth, saved only by Professor Dumbledore's use of the Aresto Momentum charm. In Potter's absence Diggory caught the Snitch, giving Hufflepuff the win by one hundred points. When Diggory learned the reason for his victory, he graciously offered to replay the match, but Gryffindor captain Oliver Wood conceded that Hufflepuff had won the game fairly.[4]

Hufflepuff were subsequently hammered by Ravenclaw in November.

It is likely that Slytherin defeated Hufflepuff by a big margin, to go into the last game leading the championship by 200 points[5] (which must give them a points difference of +300 after two matches, since Gryffindor were at +100) - considering that Slytherin's victory over Ravenclaw was apparently "narrow".[6] This implies that Hufflepuff probably finished last in the tournament, with two heavy defeats and a comparatively narrow victory: Ravenclaw also had one win and two defeats, but one of their defeats was narrow (to Slytherin) and their victory was large (over Hufflepuff).

1994–1995 school year

Season canceled for the Triwizard Tournament. Captain and Seeker Cedric Diggory, who is in his sixth year at Hogwarts, is murdered by Peter Pettigrew, who was ordered to do so by Lord Voldemort.

1995–1996 school year

Ravenclaw defeated Hufflepuff during the 1995–1996 school year. Although not mentioned in the books, this has to have been the case for Hufflepuff not to have won the Quidditch Cup, which went to Gryffindor again.

Hufflepuff defeated Gryffindor by 240-230. Gryffindor Beater Jack Sloper missed a Bludger and hit his captain in the mouth. Fellow Beater Andrew Kirke fell off his broom when Hufflepuff Chaser Zacharias Smith came flying towards him with the Quaffle. Gryffindor Seeker Ginny Weasley caught the Snitch from right under Hufflepuff Seeker Summerby's nose to end the match on her own terms.[7]

Hufflepuff narrowly defeated Slytherin in their final match.[8]

Potter vs Summerby

Hufflepuff defeated Gryffindor, 320-60 after Harry Potter, the Gryffindor Team's Seeker and Captain, was knocked unconscious by a Bludger hit by the Gryffindor substitute Keeper Cormac McLaggen. It is unknown how they faired against Ravenclaw and Slytherin in their respective matches - although they must have lost at least one, since Gryffindor apparently took the tournament again.

1997-1998 school year

Nothing is known about Quidditch during this year.

Uniform and equipment

The Hufflepuff Quidditch team's uniforms are canary yellow and black, the same as their house colours. Similar to the uniforms of the three other houses, the Hufflepuff's Quidditch uniform consists of a long robe, tight fitting jumper, leather gauntlets and shin-guards, and light boots. A small embroidered Hufflepuff crest is stitched onto the uniform over the heart, and the name and number of the player are on the back of the robe in black lettering.[9]

Goggles are often used in stormy playing conditions. In addition to the established uniform, the Keeper wears padded leather chest armour and an optional padded leather helmet. Beaters also carry small black clubs (similar to baseball bats) to help them ward off and redirect Bludgers during matches.
