I'm a student and I'm new to MySQL, I recently came across a question that asked me to create a view of games with word 'ball' in them from 2 columns namely game1 and game2. I tried it in a way, but as I'm selecting both columns, if a column's value contains a match, it is displaying both values of column game1 as well as game2.

tabel: sports
game1 | game2
swimming | football
athletics | tennis
basketball | cricket

Querry I tried :
-> select game1,game2 from sports
-> where game1 like '%ball%' or game2 like '%ball%';

Output I got :
| game1 | game2 |
| swimming | football |
| basketball | cricket |

Output I need :
| game1 | game2 |
| basketball | football |

Please let me know if there is a query That i can use to get the result as needed

I'm new to this forum, so I'm not sure how I could attach screenshots :(
