A team must make a touchdown before the second half. In the first half, each team must move the ball forward by a distance of ten yards. During the second half, the opposing team must move the ball into the goal area.

The first half of the game is known as the “draw.” The second half is known as the “score”. This refers to the number of goals scored by both teams. The first half is called the offensive zone, while the second is known as the defensive zone. In the third quarter, the two teams must score a goal. The final period is referred to as the fourth quarter. The fourth quarter is considered to be the neutral zone.

The third quarter of the game is the “half.” This quarter consists of one team scoring and defending a goal, while the other team tries to prevent the opponent scoring by kicking the ball. The game is usually played by two teams of eleven players. It is the most popular game in the world. The two teams must score points in order to win the match. The other half must score a goal.
