Didn't understand the question

I don't understand exactly what we have to do in init. I have done my own guessing but I'm getting an error. Help please!

import re

string = '''Love, Kenneth: 20
Chalkley, Andrew: 25
McFarland, Dave: 10
Kesten, Joy: 22
Stewart Pinchback, Pinckney Benton: 18'''

players = re.search('''
''',string,  re.X|re.M)

dc = players.groupdict()
class Player:
    def __init__(self, name, score):
        x = name.split(" ")
        self.last_name = x[0]
        self.first_name = x[1]
        self.score = score

The challenge says three attributes, last_name, first_name and score with init method. I think below is the easiest way to create with init method. Hope this will easy to understand.

class Player: def init(self, last_name, first_name, score): self.last_name = last_name self.first_name = first_name self.score = score
