Jessica saw her chance and took it. She ran past her opponent and sprinted down the sideline of the green artificial turf field. She saw her team mate dribble the ball past the defender. Jessica knew there was only 10 seconds on the clock and they needed to score to avoid overtime. She began to angle toward the goal and kept her eyes on Hayley.
She thought she heard her mother screaming, but who could really tell with all the crazy parents coaching from the sideline. Jessica saw her big chance as she and Hayley made eye contact. Hayley crossed the ball in front of the goal and Jessica knew their timing was perfect. Just like they practiced hundreds of times during the season. Jessica timed her kick and as her foot hit the ball you could see the silica sand come up from the turf. Score! Game over!
