Matric English Essay A Hockey Match

A hockey match played between two strong teams is really a thrilling experience. Last Sunday, I enjoyed 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 board zonal championship and was naturally considered to be a strong combination, the City Raiders, too, was experienced players and had already played in many tournaments. The spectators expected to see a very interesting game.

At exactly 4:00 p.m. the referee blew a long whistle and the players who had taken up their positions in the filed looked towards the center forwards who quickly leapt into action.

Our center forward Niaz pushed the ball towards the Raider's 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 too late; Niaz had hit the ball right into the goal. We went mad with joy. We shouted and clapped and whistled and our players waved to us.

The game started again. Raiders were more vigilant this time. Their center forward managed to beat ours, and passed the ball to his right in who passed it back to him. He dribbled it past our defenders and reached to goal mouth but our goal keeper 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 fought back valiantly and repulsed every attack. At this point, the referee blew a long whistle 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 goal keeper stood his ground and 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.
