The Holyhead Harpies defeat the Heidelberg Harriers in what is widely agreed to be one of the finest Quidditch games ever seen. The game lasted for seven days, at the end of which Harriers captain Rudolf Brand proposed marriage to the captain of the Harpies, Gwendolyn Morgan. She hit him with her broom (QA7).
Adding to the gender politics of Brand proposing to Morgan and Morgan's forceful rejection, the Holyhead Harpies are known for only hiring witches. -BB
