"Making the Kick," Daniel Shrekli, Ninth Grade, MS/HS 141

Its the 90th minute of the match
Half want the goalie to miss,
Half want the goalie to catch.
For good luck you kiss the ball
Praying to God you get it over the wall.
The passionate fans go wild,
The weather was so warm, but yet still mild.
I took a step back,
Knowing that shooting is a skill I don't lack.
I run up to shoot,
I feel the ball touch my boot.
The ball goes swirling,
Tricking the keeper,
He cont handle all the curling.
The goalie misses, the ball hits the net,
All of my goals have all at once been met.
