This post is to announce the MVP awards of the first two weeks of the summer season.
Week 1 (July 9-10) featured two games: on Saturday, Zippy Fugitives played Hot Potato and on Sunday, Willaway played Wingdings.
On Saturday's game, the officials in attendance were most impressed by Cody Lewis, whose 27 goals made the difference for Hot Potato that day.
On Sunday's game, there were a few notable performances. Elena Galatas did an amazing job for her first-ever match, having 21 out of 50 blocks as a Beater. (Actually, both of the other Wingdings playing, Kim Alting and Arianna Stonewater also had very solid first-time performances as well; we expect great things out of all three of you!) Will Lestrange's overall answer rate of 81.63% was also worthy of note.
However, on Sunday, Sirius Fudge played a particularly amazing game: shining both on offense and defense and, with a 70.59% block rate, even managing a higher percentage than Will as Beater (against the same Chaser). Therefore, Week 1's MVP goes to Sirius.
Week 2 (July 16-17) also featured two games: on Saturday, Wingdings played Zippy Fugitives and on Sunday, Hot Potato played Willaway.
On Saturday's game, the officials in attendance were most impressed by Darcey Goode, who dazzled the crowds as she flew her way to 24 goals.
On Sunday's game, two very strong players on Hot Potato made the difference for their team. Cody Lewis played a great game as usual, with an overall answer rate of 80 percent.
But another player played the game of her life, leaving no doubt in the minds of the officials that not only has she returned to her old form, but she might be the person to watch in the future. Between preventing 14 goals or shots on goal from happening and scoring six of her own, Matilde Rayne's prowess on both sides of the Quidditch field has earned her the MVP for Week 2.
Side note from Will (i.e. NOT from QB as a whole): Mattie actually blocked a higher percentage of my attempts than Cody; the implications of this fact for next season are *very* interesting.
