    All my fear is gone. "Goal! Goal!" Announcer would be yelling if he were broadcasting this boring recreational game. My sister's team had just slipped in a goal.

    Problems with looking "un neat" on the playing field As a sophomore on the Cocoa High's Varsity girl soccer team, I can truly say that our appearance on the field looks revolting as a whole.
