The Slytherin Quidditch Team is a team of seven students from Slytherin 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 Hufflepuff 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 Slytherin team wear green robes.

[edit] 1991/1992

The first Quidditch match of the season was against Gryffindor. Their new Seeker, Harry Potter was blocked by Captain Marcus Flint, allowing Gryffindor a penalty. The match was complicated by an attempt on Harry's life by Defence Against the Dark Arts professor, Quirinus Quirrell. Flint took advantage of this distraction to score five goals, however despite the attack Harry still managed to catch the Snitch, albeit with his mouth.[1]

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, Harry Potter was able to catch the Snitch in an incredibly fast time.

The first match Gryffindor vs Slytherin was rescheduled as Malfoy was injured, instead Gryffindor played Hufflepuff. During the game, the pitch was invaded by Dementors, which affected Seeker Harry Potter, who fainted and fell off his broom, resulting in his team lossing the game.[4] During the Gryffindor vs Ravenclaw match, Slytherins Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle and Marcus Flint attempt to fool Harry into believing the Dementors have done the same again, not knowing that Harry could now cast a Patronus Charm, which he did.
