Hat Trick: (n.) scoring three goals in a single football match
Yes, I did a hat trick today. I scored 3 goals against the Gold Team, and our team, the Maroon, won 5-2. Geert scored the other two. Well, I could have “easily” made at least four goals but it is not my nature “not to pass to more open teammates.”
It was the last match of the eliminations of the 2006 IRRI Sportsfest Football tournament. The Gold team is consistently lacking players. But some of our teammates were over confident with how the team was doing this year, and did not show up. We men were just 7 (no male substitutes!) and the ladies had one. Even though the Gold team were just 6, they gave us a hard time, and even made 2 goals.
Anyway, it felt so good deep down inside to do a hat trick. Too bad, I don’t have pictures to brag about. It was also comforting that my colleagues were there watching. And they even said they understand the game more. :)
We face Rhulyx’s unbeatable Apple Green team. Just one win of the best-of-three. Or even two. I won’t complain.
