Tournament Day 2:
The next day was another very exciting day for us and we left the stadium in high spirits. Our first match of the knockouts was a round of 32 match against a team called Bees. We won this match 3-1. Some fantastic goals were scored by us in this match. After some time, we played another match against Parappur FC, who we tied 0-0 in the match. Sadly, we lost 3-2 in the penalties. As we got knocked out, we had lunch at a nearby restaurant and then came back to the stadium. We then watched some of the remaining matches, namely the semi finals and the finals. The finals was won by Kodagu Academy also incidentally in the penalties. We got the Most Disciplined Team award in the prize distribution ceremony. After that we came back to our hotel and washed up quickly. Next, we quickly left for the airport at 6 and reached Pune at 10.
This trip was in many ways one of the greatest trips I’ve ever had. It was lots of fun and I also learnt a lot of team dynamics like teamwork and sharing.
