Then it happened – at last, Betty turned and passed the ball to her! She knew this was her chance, this was her moment! She zipped down the field, changing direction over and over again as she zigzagged through players and made her way toward the net. With her teammates cheering, “Goal! Goal!” she lined up her kick and prepared to take her shot.
Her heart pounded wildly in her ears. This was the moment she knew she had been waiting for. She would make the winning goal and her teammates would lift her onto their shoulders and carry her off the field.
