On the 1st of November 2018, our school, DPS North Kolkata had organised an Inter- house throw Ball Tournament for girls of Classes VIII, IX and XI. There were 12 members in each team. The tournament started around 9 o’ clock in the morning. There were three levels in the game. The first match was between Bhagat House and Netaji House and the second match was between Gandhi house and Patel house.
In the beginning of the first match Netaji House did quite well but Bhagat House played better in the second half. However, Netaji House managed to win the first match. The contest between Gandhi House and Netaji House was not as interesting as the previous one. Gandhi House flopped in the beginning and there was high chance for Patel House to win. However, Gandhi House gained impetus in the second half of the game and won over the blue shirts.
Then the players had the recess. The players rested and refreshed themselves. Half an hour later the final match started between Netaji House and Gandhi House.
Both the house members were excited to win the trophy for their respective house. Students of different classes formed the audience. The score was recorded on a board placed in the playground. Everyone cheered for their own team as the score increased. Even our teachers were tensed and guided the players as far as possible. When the last half was about to end there was a difference of only one point. People were biting their nails and participants were ready for the last throw and catch. Bhagat House threw the ball and hoped that Netaji House would miss it. However, Netaji House made the final catch and won the tournament by one point. Principal ma’am handed the winner’s trophy to the winning team and another to the runner’s up team.
It was a memorable experience for all of us.
