I am always thoroughly confused when reading the chapter Seen and Unforseen in Order of the Phoenix. It says Hufflepuff defeated Gryffindor, 240-230. It's known that each goal score is worth 10 points right? Aside from the snitch which is 150. Well it only mentions Ron missing 14 goals, but he must have missed 24...
The very best thing you could say about the match was that it was short; the Gryffindor spectators had to endure only twenty-two minutes of agony. It was hard to say what the worst thing was: Harry thought it was a close-run contest between Ron’s fourteenth failed save, Sloper missing the Bludger but hitting Angelina in the mouth with his bat, and Kirke shrieking and falling backwards off his broom when Zacharias Smith zoomed at him carrying the Quaffle. The miracle was that Gryffindor only lost by ten points: Ginny managed to snatch the Snitch from right under Hufflepuff Seeker Summerby’s nose, so that the final score was two hundred and forty versus two hundred and thirty.
And then a few paragraphs later Fred says,
‘I haven’t even got the heart to take the mickey out of him,’ said Fred, looking over at Ron’s crumpled figure. ‘Mind you … when he missed the fourteenth –’He made wild motions with his arms as though doing an upright doggy-paddle.
Are there other ways of scoring I'm not familiar with? Or is the scoring wrong and the number 14 should be 24? Can anyone clear this up?
