A large number of students and teachers had come to see the match. The referee gave long whistles and the captains of both the teams came forward. A coin was tossed in the air. The Khalsa’s won the toss and chose their favourable side.
Both the teams were in their proper uniforms. The Khalsa players had blue shirts and white shorts while the players of Guru Har Krishan Public School had white shirts and white shorts.
The match started at 3 PM. It was quite brisk from the very beginning. The Khalsa’s pressed hard but could not score a goal. They got two short corners but failed to score. Their center forward rushed at an amazing speed. But he was checked by the full-backs of the competitors. The ball was passed and re-passed like a shuttlecock, neither side could score a goal. So, the first half was event-less.
  After the half-time interval, the teams changed their sides. The game began again. The players of Guru Har Krishan Public School got a short corner and scored a goal. There were shouts of joy from the supporters of Guru Har Krishan Public School and from the spectators. Sticks went up in the air but during the next few minutes, the Khalsa’s scored an equalizer. Shouts of joy from the Khalsa side dominated the sky. The game   became more interesting. The Khalsa’s rushed forward. Their captain played very nicely He ran with the ball into the D and hit it hard. But the goalkeeper of the rival team was very alert. He checked the ball and foiled all the attempts of the rival team. The spectators raised shouts of joy


Now, the time was almost over. Each side tried hard to win the game. But all their efforts came to a naught. The referees blew long whistles and declared that the game was over.
They were given extra time to play Now, each side tried hard to score a goal. But neither team could succeed. Thus the match ended in a draw It was really a well-contested match.
