Quidditch World Cup 2014 Semi-finals Match 2

The ten-hour semi-final between the Bulgarian National Team and the Japanese National Team was a hugely enjoyable high scoring and thrilling match. The first three-quarters of the game were dominated by Japan, who at one point were 250 points ahead, but the Bulgarian team did not give up. After a brilliant diversionary move, their Seeker Viktor Krum caught the Snitch to make the final score Bulgaria 610 points to Japan’s 460 (Pm).
