I felt my heart beating as I walked onto the pitch. It was a sunny summer’s day and I was with my team. I looked over my shoulder to see my family’s smiling faces. Joe scored the first goal. Tim had made 2 great saves. But while we were celebrating the opposition scored. That made the score 1-1 with 2 minutes to go.
I retrieved the ball from a through pass. Racing down the field, time ticking away. I drew back my foot to shoot and just as I was bringing my foot down, a small coin fell onto by boot. I stared at it. Ten seconds to go. I couldn’t shoot with my good foot with the coin on it but I couldn’t not shoot. I lined up my foot and kicked. The little coin went flying and landed on the face of the goalie. A few moments later the ball flew into the net. “GOAL!” my team screamed.It had been a good day we were playing a match at half time at Forsyth Barr Stadium at the Southern United Game. I never knew so much could happen at half of a soccer match. I enjoyed playing that match at half time. It was an excellent experience.
