Bats Survive the Tornados

"….even die-hard fans must have been dubious about the Bats' chances"

Bats Survive the Tornados

Bats Survive the Tornados is an article published in the Sports section of the Daily Prophet (DP2).

The Prophet reports on a Quidditch match where a surprise win by the Ballycastle Bats over former league leaders Tutshill Tornados was attributed to a suspicious bout of “sleeping sickness” affected the performance of the Tornados’ keeper, Mervyn Fenwick (DP2).



Another example of where any tactic will be used in a Quidditch match - as long as the referee doesn't notice....

Although the date printed on the second Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP2) is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
