Improved Essays
The Final Game It was sunny San Diego, California. The grass was cut perfectly and that was the moment I knew it was our time! Mmmm... It was the day after Thanksgiving and was time to play in the semi-finals where everything mattered.
My coach said, “ You know what ladies, this is our time. Let’s show California what Broomfield soccer team got! Now huddle up.”

My face was as red as a tomato from the sun beaming on my face. Second half was about to start, I was playing a left center back. When my coach said we we’re playing good… that was when I knew, we had to play our hearts out, we had to play great, no… fantastic.
“ Alright ladies, give it your all, there is no fear.” Ally
