Overtime.
Golden Goal.
As I place the ball in a circle,
I think about where I should place the shot.

I wait for the whistle
my team is silent
but the crowd is roaring

pressure is on
nerves rush through me

suddenly the crowd silences
the whistle blows

I sprint toward the ball
the crowd stands

my shot

swift
quick
hard
and low right

the keeper dives for the ball
I turn my head
don't even watch
I know
I won the game.
