|Today's soccer game was a weird one for Jayden and her
teammates. The opposing team was short a player, so that meant that
one player from her team would be assisting the other team each
quarter. The two teams went up and down the field during the first
quarter, but each team played strong defense and got good
goaltending, ending the 10 minutes of action scoreless. Jay's team
got on the scoreboard first, scoring the only goal of the half in
the second frame. While Jay didn't score the goal, she helped drive
the ball down the field.
The second half was almost a mirror image
of the first, but instead of Jay's team scoring the goal, it was the
opposition - but the goal was scored by Jayden's teammate, who was
playing for the other team at the time! The goal was scored late
enough in the game that it all but sealed a tie. Sure enough, when
the whistle blew the score was still 1-1!
