Hockey is my favorite game. Hockey is played with eleven players on each side. There is one goal-keeper, two fullbacks, three half backs and five forwards. Hockey is played on grassy fields.
The game starts with a bully-off at the center between the center-forwards of the rival teams. Players carry off the ball and then try to pass it through the goalposts of the opposite teams. They hit the ball hard from their side to the side of the rivals. Whichever team scores more goals, wins the match.
There are two referees who conduct the match. If there is foul play, they penalize it. If the ball crosses the boundary line, the game is started again.
I love to play hockey. It provides an excellent exercise to all parts of the body. This game develops team spirit. It amuses and excites. The players feel a sensation of joy. My heart is filled with joy when I play or watch a hockey match.
