Quidditch World Cup 2014 Semi-finals Match 1 (Day 1)

The first day of the USA v Brazil semi-final featured errors on both sides due to nerves and pressure. American Chaser Mercy Wardwell dropped the Quaffle five times; two of the Brazilian Chasers – Alejandra Alonso and Fernando Diaz – also dropped the Quaffle twice each; and US Beater Lucas Picquery managed to hit his own Keeper in the face with a Bludger. The score at close of play with the match still ongoing: USA 120 – Brazil 100 — the match finished the next day (QWC).
