**UPDATE** Middlebury just came from behind to beat Boston University 60-40 on a snitch catch. At one point Middlebury was down 30-0, but in very intense battle, Midd pulled it out. They will now advance to the quarterfinal where they will play the winner of UCLA (who they’ve already beated earlier in the tournament) vs. Michigan State.
Also, just found this Twitter that will have score updates on the UCLA vs. Michigan State game. And see this Twitter for a recap of Midd’s win over BU. MiddBlog will let you know where to find updates of Midd’s next game on Twitter

Middlebury’s Quidditch Team has made it into the elimination bracket, one of 32 teams out of the orignal 60 that advanced. Midd started playing a match against Marquette, but it was cut short when a mistake in the bracket was caught. They then played Carleton instead, beating them soundly 100- 10. Now they will advance to the round of 16 where they will play Boston University. It is single game elimination at this point.
Since the Quidditch World Cup website hasn’t been updating, nor has their twitter, Middblog will try to keep you up-to-date on the status of Middlebury’s Quidditch team with info we are getting from the sources we have at the tournament. Check out our first post on the World Cup to find out what has happened so far.
