GIRLS BEAT BOYS!
In a surprising result, the No. 69 Middle School girlsfootball team yes
terday beat their school's boysteam. The boysteam used to help the girls
with their training. They had never lost to the girls before, but this time the
girls beat them 43 in an exciting match.
After the game, Wu Nai, captain of the boysteam, was very unhappy.
“We all thought this would be an easy game,”he said.“We never thought a
team of girls could beat us. This is the most unlucky day of my life.”
But Mr Hu, the boysPE teacher, said he thought the girls deserved to
win.“The boys were too confident,”he said.“I told them before the match
that they needed to play well. They all thought that girlsfootball was a joke.
Now they know better. They played carelessly, and they deserved to lose.”
The match had started well for the boys. After 30 minutes, they were win
ning 2:0. Their best striker,Lu Ming,scored in the thirtieth minute.Earlier,
the midfield player, Ma Zhengquan, had scored the first goal in only the sec-
ond minute of the match. His excellent shot went low to the left of the girls
goal. Their keeper, Jiang Mei, could not stop it.
However, after the first half hour, the boys seemed to become too confi
dent and relaxed. At first, the girls had felt a bit nervous, but then they be
came more and more confident. Just before half time, Li Xiaolin made the score
2:1, with a beautiful shotsintosthe top righthand corner of the boysgoal.
