[[Quidditch]] results are important not only for the pride of winning the Quidditch Cup, but also because there are House Points at stake.

Three quarters of the crowd supported Gryffindor, since Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw were eager to see someone else's name on the Cup even if it couldn't be theirs, but also because Harry was now flying with a state-of-the-art Firebolt broomstick which was met with great acclaim. This particular match was also known for incredibly dirty tactics from the Slytherin team (and a couple of retaliatory attacks from Fred and George) which enraged Madam Hooch to the point of angry hysteria. Johnson scored first, to great applause, then was nearly knocked off her broom when Flint deliberately smashed into her. While he was untruthfully claiming to have failed to see Johnson, Fred threw his [[Beater's bat|bat]] at the back of Flint's head which smashed into his broom handle, bloodying his nose. Penalties were given to each side.

The Inter-House Quidditch Cup,[3] also known as the Hogwarts Quidditch Cup[4] or simply the Quidditch Cup, is awarded yearly at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to the House Quidditch team with the most total points.

DescriptionEdit

The Championship takes the form of a mini-league, with each house team playing each other throughout the course of the year. This results in three games for each team, and six games of Quidditch for the school to enjoy overall. As there is such a small number of games, each one is eagerly anticipated and usually attended by the entire school, including the teachers. When it comes to Quidditch some of the Professors lose their normal calm demeanour and become as excited about the result as the students. Commentary is provided on each game.

A commentator of note was Lee Jordan, who attended Hogwarts in the 1990s, a task he carried out since his third year, and possibly before that as well. Lee sprinkled his commentaries with a bit of Gryffindor bias, a shameless admiration for Angelina Johnson, and more than a few swear words at times, not always to the amusement of Professor McGonagall.

Final standings in the competition are based on the total amount of points won over all matches played, rather than the number of victories.[2] It is entirely possible for one team to lose to another, but still claim the Cup if their points from previous games were high enough.[1]

The Quidditch Cup itself is an enormous, silver trophy cup, with four handles designed after the four Houses' emblematic animals. The Cup is traditionally kept in the office of the reigning champions' Head of House.

Quidditch results are important not only for the pride of winning the Quidditch Cup, but also because there are House Points at stake. It was stated before the Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff match in 1992 that if Gryffindor won they would overtake Slytherin in the House Championship for the first time in seven years. It’s never made clear how many points are awarded for Quidditch victories, but when Harry was docked fifty points by Professor McGonagall for running round the Astronomy Tower at 1:00 in the morning, he worried that he’d lost the lead he gained through his last Quidditch victory. Percy Weasley also remarks to Harry Potter that his playing the day before brought Gryffindor into the lead for the House Cup, by earning them fifty points during Harry's second year.[5]

Oliver Wood, captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team in Harry's early years, always pressured the team to win the cup, and always made a speech before entering the pitch if they had gotten to the final match, even though sometimes his teammates ignored his speeches.

Around the 1691-1692 school year, Gryffindor suffer such a heavy defeat, it takes three hundred years until they suffer one worse.[6] This most likely took place during the captaincy of Astrix Alixan, Gryffindor team captain from 1688 to 1692.[7] Alixan was succeeded in the post by Filemina Alchin (1692–1696), Angelina Appleby (1696–1700).[7]

1700sEdit

The first captains of the Gryffindor team in the 18th century, succeeding Angelina Appleby, were Oona Ballington (1700–1704), Concepta Battista (1704–1708), Betty Bickering (1708–1712), Hugh Biggs (1712–1716), Mike Boon (1716–1720), Jason Charmer (1720–1724), and Sophia Prickett (1724–?).[8]

The Slytherin team was captained by Katie Rayknolls (17241728), Vicky Bishopper (1728–1732), Robin Higgy (1732–1736), Mark Sommertime (1736–1740), Russell Lucky (1740–1744), Dan Darker (1744–1748), Jess Lafington (1748–1752), Kris Kolumbiko (1752–1756), and David Makehay (1756–1760), all of whom for four consecutive school years,[9] until Mark Overcliff, replacing David Makehay, became captain of the Slytherin Quidditch team. Overcliff's captainship was only during the 1760–1761 school year.[9]

1940s1970sEdit

The Slytherin team was captained by Winky Crockett (19401944), Neil Lament (1944–1948), Andrew Snowy Owl (1948–1952), Jo King (1952–1956), Rufus Winickus (1956–1960), Jody Jacknife (1960–1964), Stuart Craggy (1964–1968), Steve Laughalot (1968–1972), and Emma Vanity (1972–1976), all of whom for four consecutive school years,[10] until Lucinda Talkalot, replacing Emma Vanity, became captain of the Slytherin Quidditch team. Talkalot's captainship was only during the 19761977 school year.[10]

19531954 school yearEdit

Minerva McGonagall, like her mother, was a gifted Quidditch player, who represented Gryffindor during her time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Minerva had a nasty fall in this, her final year (a foul during the Gryffindor versus Slytherin match, which would decide the Quidditch Cup winner) and left her with a concussion, several broken ribs, and a lifelong desire to see Slytherin crushed on the Quidditch pitch.[11]

19681969 school yearEdit

R. J. H. King played on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, and won an award for it in 1969.[12]

1970sEdit

James Potter played as a Chaser for Gryffindor sometime during the 1970s.[13] At some point during this period, the Gryffindor team won the Quidditch cup.[14]

During the 19701971 school year, M. G. McGonagall played on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, winning an award for it.[12]

Regulus Black played for Slytherin during the 19771978 school year.

1985–1986 school yearEdit

Charlie Weasley played as Seeker for Gryffindor this season.[1] Gryffindor beat Slytherin.[15] Gryffindor won the Quidditch Cup.[6]

1986–1987 school yearEdit

Angelica Cole was the captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team that year.[16]

1988–1989 school yearEdit

There was some rescheduling of games. A Gryffindor-Ravenclaw match was played at least twice, meaning it was likely something happened to cause a rematch. The second Gryffindor-Ravenclaw match was shortly after the Slytherin-Hufflepuff match.[17][18] Gryffindor did not win the Quidditch Cup.

19891990 school yearEdit

Either Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin won the Quidditch Cup.

1991–1992 school yearEdit

Harry Potter became Gryffindor's youngest Seeker in 100 years and flew a Nimbus 2000 broom. Oliver Wood was Gryffindor Keeper and captain. Fred and George Weasley were the Gryffindor Beaters, while Alicia Spinnet, Angelina Johnson and Katie Bell served as Chasers. Marcus Flint was in his fifth year and captained Slytherin. Slytherin's Keeper was Miles Bletchley, Terence Higgs was their Seeker and Adrian Pucey played as a Chaser.

Gryffindor Keeper and captain, Oliver Wood

Despite being in only his first year at Hogwarts Harry was drafted into the Gryffindor team after Professor McGonagall witnessed him spectacularly catch Neville Longbottom's Remembrall after a fifty foot dive. He became the youngest house player in a century.[19]

The opening game, Gryffindor versus Slytherin, was played on a cold November's day. This was Harry Potter's debut match. Angelina Johnson was first to score, shooting the Quaffle past Bletchley. The first time Harry spotted the Snitch, so did Higgs, but as Harry sped towards it he was blocked by Flint. For this, Madam Hooch awarded a penalty which Alicia Spinnet scored, but the Seekers had lost sight of the Snitch. Professor Quirrell then began to magically interfere with Harry's broom, but Harry was saved when Hermione Granger cast a spell to start a small fire in the stand that Quirrell was occupying - although she believed it was Snape that she was distracting (Snape was in fact muttering a counter-charm). Harry regained control of his broom and caught the Snitch by accidentally almost swallowing it. Although Flint complained to Hooch, she judged the incident fair play and Gryffindor won the match 170-60.[20]

Professor Severus Snape refereed the Hufflepuff versus Gryffindor match. His decisions were biassed in favour of Hufflepuff. Gryffindor Beater, George Weasley hit a Bludger at him. Harry caught the Snitch in record time and won the game for Gryffindor.[21]

Harry was unconscious in the hospital wing for the Gryffindor versus Ravenclaw match, in which Gryffindor suffered their worst defeat in three hundred years.[6]

It's not certain who won the Cup, but Gryffindor were not the winners. It's probable that Slytherin were the winners, given the importance of Quidditch Cup points in the overall House standings, and the fact that Slytherin were the house in the overall lead. Slytherin would have won their final two matches by a sufficient margin and overtook Gryffindor who only achieved 90 points difference. Ravenclaw would have needed to lose at least one game or win by only a small margin, probably to Hufflepuff to achieve their 2-1 record (if they won 3, they probably would have higher points than Slytherin, who also lost one game).

ResultsEdit

  • Gryffindor defeated Slytherin, 170-60
  • Gryffindor defeated Hufflepuff, 180-20[22]
  • Ravenclaw defeated Gryffindor

Records AchievedEdit

  • Youngest house player in 100 years : Harry Potter (Gryffindor)

1992–1993 school yearEdit

The Slytherin team began the season with a new Seeker, Draco Malfoy, whose father bought the entire team brand new Nimbus 2001 brooms. There were no girls on the Slytherin team this season. Gryffindor kept the same team as the previous season. Harry flew a Nimbus 2000. Fred and George Weasley flew Cleansweep Fives.

Wood planned to begin training before the other three sides. Unfortunately for Gryffindor, who had got up at the crack of dawn for their first training session, Slytherin had been given use of the Hogwarts Quidditch pitch by Severus Snape. To make matters worse Harry had to leave with Ron Weasley after he cast a spell on Draco Malfoy which backfired, causing Ron to belch up slugs.[6]

"I, Professor S. Snape, give the Slytherin team permission to practise today on the Quidditch pitch, owing to the need to train their new Seeker."
—Flint's letter from Snape[src]
200px-Nimbus2000 2001

During the rainy Slytherin versus Gryffindor match, the Slytherin Chasers were dominant, taking a 60-0 lead at one point. Harry was relentlessly pursued by a rogue Bludger, so Oliver Wood called for a time-out. However, Harry agreed to play on, telling the Weasley twins to stop flying around him so he could pursue the Snitch. When the action resumed Harry was struck on the elbow by a Bludger, which broke his right arm. Despite this, when he spotted the Snitch he was able to chase after it and grasp it in his left hand, winning the match for Gryffindor. Gilderoy Lockhart then attempted to mend Harry's broken arm, but instead removed the bone. Harry was given Skele-Gro in the Hospital Wing, where that night Dobby revealed it was he who had tampered with the Bludger.

In anticipation of their next match against Hufflepuff, Wood insisted on Gryffindor team practises every night after dinner.[23]

Unfortunately the Quidditch Cup was completely cancelled due to attacks on Muggle-born students before the Gryffindor versus Hufflepuff match.

1993–1994 school yearEdit

In the 1993–1994 school year, the team is said by Lee Jordan to be "the best team Hogwarts has seen in the last few years". This was the first year that they had won the Quidditch Cup since Charles Weasley was on the team. Gryffindor kept the same team as the previous year. It was seventeen year old captain, Oliver Wood's last season. They trained three times a week.[24]Slytherin's captain was still Marcus Flint. His fellow Chasers were Graham Montague and C. Warrington. Derrick and Bole were Slytherin's Beaters, Draco Malfoy was Seeker whilst Bletchley kept his place as Keeper. Roger Davies was Ravenclaw captain and Cho Chang their Seeker.

The Slytherin versus Gryffindor match was re-scheduled as Flint claimed his Seeker, Malfoy had an injured arm, so the first match was Gryffindor versus Hufflepuff. Hufflepuff had a new captain and Seeker, Cedric Diggory.

Bad Weather during Quidditch Match (Concept Artwork for the HP3 movie 03)

Stormy conditions during the Hufflepuff versus Gryffindor match

The game was played in heavy rain, ferocious wind, thunder and lightning. The wind was so powerful that the players staggered sideways as they walked onto the very muddy pitch. The sound of the thunder drowned out the crowd's shouts. Madam Hooch's whistle to start the match coincided with the first bolt of lightning. Harry's vision was hindered by the constant raindrops on his glasses and he was almost struck by a Bludger twice. Wood called for a time-out when Gryffindor were fifty points up. Hermione Granger used "Impervius" so Harry's glasses would repel any water. As play resumed, Harry saw the Grim in the clouds. When both Seekers had spotted the Snitch, Harry then saw at least one hundred Dementors that had entered the stadium. He heard his mother's last words before she was killed by Lord Voldemort and he fell about fifty feet to the ground. Albus Dumbledore ran onto the pitch waving his wand and slowing Harry's fall. He then got rid of the Dementors, magicked Harry onto a stretcher and carried him to the castle floating upon it.

Cedric caught the Snitch, giving Hufflepuff a win by 100 points. He offered a re-match, but Gryffindor accepted the defeat. Harry's Nimbus 2000 was blown to the Whomping Willow which destroyed it.[25]

Ravenclaw flattened Hufflepuff in a match in November.

Slytherin "narrowly" defeated Ravenclaw, a week after the start of term after the Christmas break. Gryffindor increased their training to five times a week (under the supervision of Madam Hooch)[26]

If Gryffindor defeated Ravenclaw, they would go into second place in the championship, though Ravenclaw would have played three matches to Gryffindor's two. Gryffindor's final practise before their match against Ravenclaw was their current side's best ever. Harry caught the Snitch within ten seconds of its release, the team performed their moves faultlessly and Wood had no criticisms.

Alicia fredgeorge

For the game against Ravenclaw, Harry flew his new Firebolt. His opposing Seeker, fourth-year Cho Chang, flew a Comet 260. Chang was the only girl on the Ravenclaw team. In clear, cool conditions, Gryffindor took an eighty point lead, but Ravenclaw managed to claw it back to 80-30. When Harry spotted the Snitch for the third time, Malfoy, Crabbe, Goyle and Flint walked onto the pitch, dressed as Dementors. Harry cast a Patronus at them and then caught the Snitch, giving Gryffindor victory, whose fans ran onto the pitch in celebration.[27]

Slytherin must have defeated Hufflepuff, and also must have done so by a very large margin: as they went into the last game leading the championship by 200 points[1], considering they only narrowly defeated Ravenclaw,[26] and that Gryffindor themselves had a known points difference of +100 (having lost by 100 points to Hufflepuff, but won by 200 against Ravenclaw). Slytherin must therefore have had a points difference of +300 after two matches, so as to have a 200-point advantage on Gryffindor.

On the first Saturday after the Easter holidays Gryffindor played Slytherin. Gryffindor had trained every day in preparation for the game. Slytherin were leading the Championship by exactly 200 points, meaning Gryffindor needed to win the match by 210 points to claim the Quidditch Cup.

"Never in anyone's memory, had a match approached in such a highly charged atmosphere."
—Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Gryffindor: Hogwarts champions for the 1993-1994 school year

Three quarters of the crowd supported Gryffindor, since Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw were eager to see someone else's name on the Cup even if it couldn't be theirs, but also because Harry was now flying with a state-of-the-art Firebolt broomstick which was met with great acclaim. This particular match was also known for incredibly dirty tactics from the Slytherin team (and a couple of retaliatory attacks from Fred and George) which enraged Madam Hooch to the point of angry hysteria. Johnson scored first, to great applause, then was nearly knocked off her broom when Flint deliberately smashed into her. While he was untruthfully claiming to have failed to see Johnson, Fred threw his bat at the back of Flint's head which smashed into his broom handle, bloodying his nose. Penalties were given to each side.

Alicia Spinnet scored and Wood saved. Katie Bell took possession of the Quaffle, but lost possession of it when Montague seized her head, almost sending her to the ground as well and gaining Gryffindor another rpenalty which she successfully took. Flint then scored for Slytherin. Bole hit Alicia with his club and George elbowed him in the face, resulting in two more penalties. Wood saved again and Gryffindor scored. A goal from Bell made the score 50-10, and while Fred and George were absent in defending her from any retaliatory attacks, Bole and Derrick whacked both Bludgers at Wood, winding him completely. Madam Hooch, almost beside herself with rage, screamed at the two for attacking the Keeper without reason. Johnson scored the resulting penalty, and Gryffindor moved into a 70-10 lead when Alicia scored.

Harry then spotted the Snitch and set off after it, ensuring a Gryffindor victory now that they had enough points to do so, but right before he could grab it, Malfoy grabbed the tail of his Firebolt and pulled it back, despite the efforts of the angry broomstick to escape his grasp, and the Snitch escaped in the confusion. This utterly loathsome display of cheating earned Gryffindor a fifth penalty from an apoplectic Madam Hooch and had many of the Gryffindor supporters (even the normally restrained Professor McGonagall) screeching insults and angry remarks at Malfoy. Alicia took the penalty, but she was so angry at the foul that she missed by several feet and Montague scored for Slytherin. After Johnson scored to make it 80-20 Malfoy plummeted towards the Snitch. Harry pursued him and took both hands off his broom to reach out and capture the Snitch winning Gryffindor the Quidditch Cup.[1]

(It is not stated who was third in the championship: however since Hufflepuff's only victory was comparatively narrow, and their two defeats were heavy - one of them to Ravenclaw, which was Ravenclaw's only win of the season, and Ravenclaw's defeat to Slytherin was narrow - it is almost certain that Ravenclaw beat Hufflepuff to third place on points difference.)

ResultsEdit

  • Hufflepuff defeated Gryffindor (100-point margin)

1995-1996 school yearEdit

During the 1995–1996 school year, Angelina Johnson was the Quidditch captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team. Oliver Wood, previous Gryffindor Quidditch Captain and Keeper, had graduated, leaving the position of Keeper open for try-outs. Ron Weasley beat Vicky Frobisher and Geoffrey Hooper amongst others to become Gryffindor Keeper.[31]

Gryffindor Keeper Ron Weasley

During Gryffindor's first training session, Ron was jeered by Slytherins in the crowd and gave Katie Bell a nose bleed when he threw the Quaffle at her face.[32] Gryffindor began training twice a week.[33]

An unknown new Seeker and an unknown Captain were appointed to replace Cedric Diggory for Hufflepuff.

Approaching their first match against Slytherin, Gryffindor trained almost daily. Graham Montague captained Slytherin. His fellow Chasers were Pucey and Warrington. Crabbe and Goyle replaced Derrick and Bole. Malfoy was Seeker and Bletchley was Keeper. The Slytherin team and fans wore silver, crown-shaped badges that read "Weasley is our King". The Slytherin fans directed abusive chants towards Ron throughout the game. Warrington scored first, then Pucey, followed by another two Slytherin goals. Angelina Johnson scored to make it 40-10. Harry beat Malfoy to the Snitch, but was struck in the back by a Bludger hit by Crabbe, after the game had ended in a Gryffindor win. Shortly after the match, Draco Malfoy insulted and provoked Fred and George Weasley and Harry Potter. Harry and George promptly attacked him, but all three had their broomsticks confiscated and were banned from Quidditch for life by Dolores Umbridge, then-High Inquisitor of Hogwarts.[34] They were replaced by Andrew Kirke, Jack Sloper, and Ginny Weasley, respectively.

Hufflepuff defeated Gryffindor in a 22 minute-long game, 240-230. Jack Sloper missed a Bludger and hit Angelina Johnson in the mouth. Andrew Kirke shrieked and fell off his broom when Zacharias Smith came zooming towards him with the Quaffle. Ginny Weasley caught the Snitch from right under Hufflepuff Seeker, Summerby's nose, greatly reducing Gryffindor's deficit although also ending the game.[35]

Hufflepuff narrowly defeated Slytherin.[36]

Ravenclaw played Gryffindor on a fine, clear day. Ravenclaw captain, Roger Davies opened the scoring, but Ron Weasley managed to up his performance from the previous two matches. Bradley and Chambers were Ravenclaw's other two Chasers that day. Ginny Weasley defeated Cho Chang in the race for the Snitch. Gryffindor won the match and the Quidditch Cup.[36]

(This implies that Hufflepuff must have previously lost to Ravenclaw - and possibly heavily so: otherwise Hufflepuff would have a 3-0 record having beaten both Gryffindor and Slytherin earlier in the season, and thus automatically be champions. Whether Ravenclaw also beat Slytherin is not clear, but Gryffindor's victory against Ravenclaw must have been sufficient to go ahead of Hufflepuff on points difference - making Ginny Weasley's capture of the Snitch in the Hufflepuff defeat important, since it means the loss was only by 10 points.)

Following Umbridge's removal from the school, Harry's, Fred's and George's bans were lifted, so Harry could play again in the next year at school: although Fred and George did not return to school in any case.

1996-1997 school yearEdit

Harry Potter was appointed as the Gryffindor Quidditch Captain during the 1996–1997 school year. Ginny Weasley and Demelza Robins replaced Angelina Johnson and Alicia Spinnet as Chasers.

Draco Malfoy, Slytherin's Seeker, was absent for the game against Gryffindor, and Vaisey, Slytherin's best Chaser, was out with a head injury. Gryffindor won, although Harper, Slytherin's substitute Seeker, nearly caught the Snitch.

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.

Ron Weasley and Katie Bell both became unintended victims of Draco Malfoy's attempts to kill Albus Dumbledore this year, and while they were unable to play, their spots in the team were taken over by Cormac McLaggen and Dean Thomas. After they were healed they both returned to the team. Harry missed the season's last game due to detention with Professor Snape.

Therefore, for the final match, Gryffindor versus Ravenclaw, Ginny Weasley played as Seeker, and her position as a Chaser was taken over once again by Dean Thomas. Cho Chang played as Ravenclaw Seeker. Gryffindor won the match 450-140 and won the Quidditch Cup.[2]

Giant Battle of hogwarts

It is unknown if any Quidditch matches were played during this school year. Hogwarts Quidditch Pitch was destroyed by Lord Voldemort's followers during the Battle of Hogwarts. The stands were burned down and Giants used the goal hoops as weapons.

1998-1999 school yearEdit

It is unknown if new Headmistress and Quidditch enthusiast, Minerva McGonagall, sanctioned a Quidditch Cup tournament for this year, after the destruction caused by the Battle of Hogwarts. If so, the Quidditch pitch would have to have been restored.

2018-2019 school yearEdit

By this time, Quidditch was being played in Hogwarts again as Rose Granger-Weasley became chaser for Gryffindor.[37]
