"Their primary weakness is in defence. Keeper Susan Blancheflower let 23 Jamaican goals past her in the first round."
-- Ludo Bagman's thoughts before the semi-final rounds of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup (Pm)
Hit in the face by a Bludger coming from one of her own teammates in a two-day match against Brazilian National Team and letting in goals due to her own errors, her team lost by 420 points to 310 (Pm).
They also lost in the third place playoff against Japan. On this occasion, Blancheflower let in 18 goals. However, in spite of the loss, fourth overall was still considered to be a good result for the Americans (Pm).
Other canon notes and references
Susan, a diminutive of Susanna, comes from the Hebrew name שׁוֹשַׁנָּה (Shoshannah) meaning "lily" (Behind the Name).
Blancheflower means "white/fair flower".
As she comes from the United States, Blancheflower may possibly have attended the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
