More than a game

The Intra-school basketball match that took place on the 17th August 2011 will always be etched in my memory. Even though our team lost, we all had a blast.

Our team was Einstein Fasters. Though we were on the lower side at the beginning of the first half, we brought the score up to a tie at half time. All the players on our team revised our strategies and headed off with high spirits. We put up a good fight, but lost 20-24. Even though we lost, we were happy as we had worked very hard and learned many lessons through the match.

I am sure that every single player learned at least one thing throughout the match. As the Einstein Fasters team’s captain, I hope that we all get more opportunities like this.

Electrifying Match

On August 17, 2011, our campus witnessed an intra-school sports tournament in soccer and basketball. A game of soccer was played by the boys of senior school. The two teams were Einstein Strongers, captained by Gautham Reddy (X) and Einstein Fasters which was captained by Bibhuti Mishra (X).

The Fasters got off to an excellent start, with a wonderful partnership between Vivek and myself in which I scored. A few minutes later, Harsha gave a quick thru-ball to Vivek and Vivek doubled the score. It was 2-0 at half time. After half-time, all the players were a bit sluggish, but both teams kept trying hard. Five minutes before the end of the game, Aman scored, bringing the Einstein Strongers back into the game. This goal reenergized the Strongers, and they started playing together. The Strongers then got a lot of luck, when they were handed a penalty kick. Gautham took the lead and scored a fabulous goal. The score was 2-2. The game ended and it was time for penalty-kick shootouts. Both teams were anxious. The five shooters for the Strongers were: Gautham, Aman, Avneesh, Abhiram and Faizan. Gautam, Faizan and Avneesh scored for the Strongers. The five shooters for the Fasters were: Bibuthi, Vivek, Harsha, Vedant and Ankith. Bibuthi was the lone scorer for the Fasters. And so, after a well-fought out game, the Strongers defeated the Fasters 5-3 on penalty-shootouts.
