It has a long history and is a game in which two teams each strive to keep or gain possession of the ball. The team with the ball, through running, jumping, throwing, and catching, attempts to move the ball into its goal circle from where a goal may be scored, while the opposing team uses defensive movements and strategies to prevent this and to gain possession. The team with the greater number of goals is the winner of the match.
