Championship Game Essay

926 words - 4 pages

It was a cold cloudy Friday morning. The day of the most nerve racking championship game had finally arrived for the two rivalry basketball teams, the Kress Lady Roos and the Hart Lady Horns. Weeks and weeks of hard, aggressive, closely won ball games one after another. Only a little bit of time after that to get ready for the most important game ever; this is the game everyone has been preparing for. A ton of exhausting conditioning and an enormous amount of shooting lead up to this moment. Every girl on the Lady Roos basketball team feels excited, pumped, and ready for the game later tonight. Constantly thinking and feeling overly enthusiastic of what the outcome of the game would be like. We all had predictions of what we wanted the game to be like but it was up to whichever team wanted it the most. With all the confidence and motivation that we had that morning we just wanted school to be over with already. It did not end quickly though. School was such a drag.

Only hours away until we would play the game of our lives. As we approached the humongous school our opponents were already there. We did not want to even look at them when we walked in. We did not want to be discouraged by what kind of players they were. As the minutes passed by it was time to get ready. We could already hear our loud and passionate fans approaching the gym.

As we had our last talk with the coach and said our glorious prayers it was now time to take what was ours. The referee threw up the perfectly orange ball into the air for the tip off and the game began. Both teams came out very aggressively. The entertaining game was close. It was any team’s game at that point. The encouraging cheers from the pumped up cheerleaders and fans really had us wanting to strive to do our best and give it our all. It all came down to the final quarter. Two minutes left the Lady Roos were down by six points. That was enough time to come back and win it. A player from the Lady Roos rebounds, and finds her short point guard. The short, fast point guard controls the ball, and sprints down the court. She throws...
