Title Crowd Goes Crazy! Part 1
Our Quidditch team (Sri Lanka) got into the Asia Quidditch Cup, after we beat Singapore in the Asia Cup qualifier. We have managed to get ourselves into the grand finals. But we had to play the only Asian World Cup qualifiers, Japan! Japan has won the Asia Cup 20 years in a row and won the World Cup last year!
We knew this was going to be really hard.

Today was the day. Everyone was dead quiet! When we were putting our equipment, I could see that everyone, even our captain Dilan was nervous. I was thinking about how strong the Japanese tackles would be? How good their passing would be? How hard the Japanese beaters could hit the bludger? How swift the goalie would be. All this made me feel more nervous! But I told myself not to get nervous.

'All right guys, team tips before we go,'said Coach Fernando.

All our players put their hands around each other in a circle and Coach Fernando was in the middle.

'Chasers and Keeper,' said Coach Fernando 'Always be swift, even when you are tired! ' Beaters don't just haphazardly hit the bludger. Do it with 60% aim and 40% strength. Seeker try and be fast and watch the snitch! If you do this, you will beat Japan,'

The whole team cheered and went out confidently into the Japanese Stadium. Yuko Sukivata (Japanese commentator) was commentating with Anil Sing (Indian commentator). They were talking about me (Yohan) because I had scored nine goals in the last match against India. The Chinese referee ( Wo Wang) threw the Quaffle up and it all started.

'Yohan Jayasuria has got the Quaffle,' said Yuko. 'He passes it to Anusha, 'She passes it to Dilan,'

'And he scores! ' Shouted Anil.
'The score is ten-nil to Sri Lanka,' said Yuko.

Dilan does a handstand on his broom.

The keeper (Yuku Sukovaler) throws the Quaffle to Suko Suzuki. He is already half way up the field. I try to tackle him but he pushes me aside and…

'He scores!' shouted Yuko.
'The score is ten all,' said Anil.

With that they scored 4 more. But that didn't mean we were going to give up. I was so angry! I just wanted to score!

'Oooh looks like Jayasuria's angry,' said Yuko.
'Look at that speed, 'shouted the dumbfounded Anil. ' That’s the world record! One hundred and ninety-five kmh!

But the Japanese chasers were still confident. They charged at me but I rammed them out of my way. They went through each of the three goal posts and so did the keeper, so we scored eight goals.

The Japanese beaters were sending bludgers at our seeker and our beaters had to work hard to protect her.

In the end she caught the golden snitch and we won the Asia Cup and I got a trophy for breaking a Quidditch record.

But just when the presentation was about to finish, the crowd went crazy!
