The Hufflepuff Quidditch Team is a team of seven students from Hufflepuff House in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry put together each year to compete against the other three teams from the school for the Quidditch Cup. The other three teams are the Gryffindor Quidditch Team, the Slytherin Quidditch Team and the Ravenclaw Quidditch Team. A captain is also chosen from the team's House to conduct trials to pick his or her fellow teammates, organise the training sessions and plan their team's tactics. The Hufflepuff team wear yellow and black robes.

[edit] 1991/1992

The second game of the season against Gryffindor was refereed not by Madam Hooch as was usual, but by head of Slytherin House, Severus Snape who was biased in Hufflepuff's favour. Despite this, the new Gryffindor Seeker Harry Potter was able to catch the Snitch in an incredibly fast time.

[edit] 1993/1994

Hufflepuff had a new Seeker and captain, fifth-year Cedric Diggory. The first match Gryffindor vs Slytherin was rescheduled as Malfoy was injured by a Hippogriff, instead Hufflepuff was called to play the game against Gryffindor. During the game, the pitch was invaded by Dementors, which affected Seeker Harry Potter, who fainted and fell off his broom. Cedric caught the Snitch instead.[3] During their second match at the end of November Hufflepuff were flattened by Ravenclaw, which put Gryffindor back in the running for the Quidditch Cup, but dampened Hufflepuff's chances.[4]

Line up:

Captain/Seeker: Cedric Diggory

The other players are unknown.

Results:

Hufflepuff vs Gryffindor: Hufflepuff win, by a margin of 100 points[3]

Hufflepuff vs Ravenclaw: Ravenclaw win, by a large margin[4]

Hufflepuff vs Slytherin: Unknown, though Slytherin probably won as they were in the lead overall by 200 points[5] and Slytherin had only narrowly beaten Ravenclaw[6]

Gryffindor won the Quidditch Cup.

[edit] 1994/1995

The Quidditch league was cancelled this year thanks to the Triwizard Tournament. At the end of the year the Hufflepuff captain and Seeker, Cedric Diggory, was murdered by Lord Voldemort.[7]

[edit] 1995/1996

During Hufflepuff's second match against Gryffindor the Gryffindor team was largely using substitutes thanks to Professor Dolores Umbridge banning the Beaters and Seeker in their team. The replacement Beaters played badly, one hitting his captain in the mouth, the other falling off of his broom when Chaser Zacharias Smith flew towards him with the Quaffle. The Gryffindor substitute Seeker, Ginny Weasley, was able to catch the Snitch. Hufflepuff still managed to win the game by a margin of ten points, however.[8]

Line up:

Chasers: Zacharias Smith, the rest unknown.

Seeker: Summerby

The other players are unknown.

Results:

Hufflepuff vs Ravenclaw: Unknown, though Ravenclaw probably won as despite winning their other two matches Hufflepuff didn't win the Cup.

Hufflepuff vs Gryffindor: 240 - 230[8]

Hufflepuff vs Slytherin: Hufflepuff win, by a narrow margin[9]

Gryffindor won the Quidditch Cup.

[edit] 1996/1997

During Hufflepuff's second match of the season against Gryffindor, the Gryffindor team was hindered by the loss of their Keeper, Ron Weasley. Their substitute, Cormac McLaggen, managed to knock out his own Seeker and Captain with a Beaters' bat. Hufflepuff unsurprisingly went on to win the match.

Line up:

Chasers: Zacharias Smith, Cadwallader and an unknown third player.

The rest of the team is unknown.

Results:

Hufflepuff vs Ravenclaw: Unknown

Hufflepuff vs Gryffindor: 320 - 60[10]
