Rematch Capture the Flag


"Go" shouted Miss King ,we charged towards the middle of the field like two angry armies wanting to fight. It was the rematch of capture the flag. Room 14 was playing against room 15 on the bottom field on Friday afternoon.
We ran to the middle of the field like a herd of stampeding animals, lots of people stopped but I just kept running because I had no idea what to do. When I ran onto room 14's side I went outside of the cones and got out straight away. Miss King told me to freeze and put my hand up. I was waiting for a long time before Ashleigh finally came and rescued me from room 14's side. After that I just stayed in room 15's safezone for the rest of the game.But once I started to understand the game I just kept trying to tag people so they wouldn't end the game by getting the flag to their side.When one person came onto our side I just ran as fast as I could to try and get them.But when I tried to get one person everyone else from room fourteen ran over to our side. I was getting really annoyed. But as frustrated as I was I just had to keep trying as hard as I could. At the end of the game normally it ends with both teams on each others side trying to come up with a plan to get the flag back to there side.I was getting really bored because I was still guarding from my side.It was so boring because it was just like the game froze.I just wanted to sit down until the game started moving again.Finally the game started moving again but it was room 14 who got the flag back to there side.Room15 were really sad about the game but I was just happy it was over.

  1. Hi Litia,
    What a great start to your writing you really had me hooked in and looking forward to reading on. I'm glad to see you kept trying despite feeling frustrated during the game. I hope you guys have a chance to redeem yourselves against Room 14 soon.
    Keep up the great writing, I'm looking froward to reading more.

  2. Hi Litia

    I really liked the beginning of your writing. It made me want to keep on reading to find out what the rest of the story was all about. Great hook.
    Reading about this rematch reminded me of how Mr Palmers class used to enjoy challenging Room 18 all the time, especially on a Friday afternoon. Keep up the great work.

  3. Hi Litia,
    You really did give a great picture of the game through your writing. I think you picked up the rules quite quickly for not having ever played before. Like you I was also getting very frustrated just watching the game when neither side seemed to be coming up with any strategies. I was almost relieved when Room 14 had a break through. (Well almost...) Keep up the great writing
