A hockey match played between two strong teams.is really
a thrilling experience.Last Sunday,I saw an exciting match
between our college Eleven and the city Raiders.It was played
in our ground,and a large number of spectators came to see the
game.Our team had recently won the Zonal Championship,and was
naturally considered to be a strong combination.The City Raiders,
too ,were experienced players and had played in many tournaments.
The spectators expected to see a very interesting game.At exact
4 p.m the referee blew a long whistle and the players who had taken
up their positions in the field looked towards the centre-forwards
who quickly leapt into action.Our centre-forwad Niaz pushed the ball
towards the Raiders,goal and the next moment he was running after it.
It happened so swiftly that the Raiders could not move before he had
reached the "D"The goal-keeper tried his best but he was to late;Niaz
had hit the ball right into the goal.We went mad with joy.We shouled
and clapped and whistled,and our players waved to us.The game started
again.Raiders were more vigilant this time.Their centre-forward managed
to best ours,and passed the ball to his right in who passed it back to him.
He dribbled it past our defenders and reached the goal-mouth but our goalkeeper
stopped the ball and sent it flying back.The ball was now with our players who
were working very hard.After a short time,our captain got the ball and raced
down to the goal-post.When he reached the "D" he slipped and fell down.The
Raiders got the ball and once again raided our goal.Our defenders and fought
back valiantly and repulsed every attack.At this point the referee blew a long
whistel and the players walked out of the ground,for it was half time.The players
went to the dressing room and had soft drinks and biscuits.After the interval,the
game became very tense.The Raiders played a better game;most of the time the ball
remained in our half.Time and again the Raiders captain who was in terrific form
reached our goal.But every time our goalkeeper stood his ground cleared the ball.
At last the time was up and our team came out happy and victorious.They had won the
match by one goal.We clapped and shouted with joy.Our players had not let us down.
