Raffi Memorial Football 2019

‘Play for the name on front of the shirt, and they will remember the name on the back.’
Football, one of the oldest sports is a game of strength and stamina. Playing such a sport not only teaches one team work but also enhances one’s balancing skills, fosters thinking ability and enables one’s creativity. It teaches one how to use time and action fruitfully. The Inter-house Raffi Memorial Football Match was held from 27th-29th August, during which Xavier’s verdant fields were a witness to the vigour, fervour and zeal of the players as each house was encouraged to lift the glorious cup. The evening sun shone on the perfectly manicured turf and the players warmed up for a competitive yet friendly match. As the ball passed from one team to the other, the tension between the opponents intensified and the yearn to win the cup drove the footballers to put on a remarkable show. All the teams tried their best to get possession of the ball and advance it across the goal line. The match for the third place between the Greens and the Reds house was won by Greens with a score of 3-0. The second position was bagged by the Golds house. The Blues house came out victorious with a score of 2-0. The hard work and commitment the players put in the game was worth the dynamic match. The crowd cheered the victory of the Blues house and everyone was left in awe of the stirring goals and defends.
