NORWAY VERSUS IVORY COAST was the title of a Sunday Prophet article written by Ginevra Potter and published on 13 April, 2014. The article covered the match between the Norwegian and Ivorian National Quidditch teams, part of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup.
The last time these sides met, the game lasted for five days. Today, the final whistle was blown in a little over two hours.
Norway's resolve and discipline was impressive given the level of hostility they faced from the crowd, many of whom were still bandaged following the Norwegian mascot's behaviour of yesterday. The match was twice halted whilst security wizards entered the stands to discover the source of jinxes sent at celebrated Norwegian Chaser Lars Lundekvam.
Ivorian Chaser Elodie Dembélé, aged only 18, scored seven of Ivory Coast's ten goals. Norwegian Seeker Sigrid Kristoffersen out-raced her counterpart Sylvian Boigny to take the Snitch in the 128th minute.
