Quidditch World Cup 2014 Semi-finals Match 1 (Day 2)

In contrast to the previous day, the second day saw thrilling play during the Brazil v USA semi-final, with both teams seemingly re-energised following the sleep break. Brazilian Keeper Raul Almeida’s saves prevented the American Chasers from running away with the scoring. In the end, it came down to an exciting race for the Snitch, which was won by Brazilian Seeker Tony Silva. The final score was Brazil 420 – USA 310 (Pm).
