Melbourne Manticores Capture QUAFL

The end of November saw Australia’s national quidditch champion crowned for the fourth time at QUAFL 2014, held at Macquarie University in Sydney, NSW.
Thirteen teams competed in 42 games over two days, through hot and wet weather and late into the night for the first time in Australian quidditch history. After endless drama, on and off field, the champion was decided in the midst of a torrential late evening rainstorm. The top seeds and favourites UNSW reached the final undefeated, where they faced up to the spectacular form of the powerful and experienced Melbourne Manticores.
An impenetrable defensive and counter-attacking performance from the Manticores saw them take an emphatic 110-40 victory and join UNSW and the Perth Phoenixes as Australian quidditch champions.
Further reflections on different games and aspects of the tournament will be forthcoming throughout the holidays, as the fallout from a magnificent and dramatic tournament is digested and analysed. Here are the full results from the weekend:
