Edmonton Aurors take home gold at first home tournament

May 15, 2016 marked a historic day for quidditch in Alberta. Teams from all across Alberta gathered together for Bayonets and Bludgers, the first quidditch tournament ever to be held in Edmonton.

Three teams, the Edmonton Aurors, Calgary Kelpies, and Mudtaurs (a combined team of University of Calgary Mudbloods and Central Alberta Centaurs) all competed to take home the trophy at Borden Park.

The Edmonton Aurors had a rough start, losing their first match of the day 70*-20 to the Kelpies (the * indicates the team that caught the snitch, worth 30 points).

With the bitter taste of defeat, the Edmonton Aurors rallied together. Under direction from coach Chris Radojewski, the Aurors rose to the challenge, winning every other game and taking home the trophy.

If you are interested in playing for the Aurors, join us at kinsmen on Sundays at 1:30 and Wednesdays at 7:00!
