A week ago, something amazing happened to my spring league team. We had won the championship! For the first time in my life, I had won a championship. It felt really good, and it was a dream come true. So, this is how we won the championship.
It was sunday, the day of the championship. It was the Naturals (my team) verses the Hustle. Two teams with both height and athleticism were going at each other. This was going to be an aggressive game, I thought to myself. The game in the first half was really close. But our team had the lead the whole time but just by 2. By the end of the first half, I had 6 points.
The second half was basically the game changer for the game. In the third quarter, our team took the lead to 11 points. But slowly, they started gaining on us by knocking down mid-range points. The lead was down to 5.
Now came the last quarter. Play after play each team scored. The time ran down to 1 minute left on the clock. We had to make sure that our opponents couldn’t make any three pointers or easy fast break buckets. We were doing a great job so far on defense, but now, 15 seconds was left on the clock. We were up by 5 so we decided to hold the ball. 5,4,3,2,1,…… we had won!! The San Jose naturals had won the spring league championship!
It was a great game indeed. I had 10 points, and two steals. But now comes my next goal; win the All-Net championship. for this, i would need to play my best and to never lose wide open oputunitues. I hope everything goes well. 🙂
