#Maydays Prompt – Let’s hear it for the girls

There was quite a crowd in attendance for the annual Girls V Boys soccer match on the village oval.

It was many things besides a fund-raiser for the children’s hospital. It was the one day in the year where the girls pitted their skills against the boys. In past years the girls had received a drubbing from the boys but this year there was an air of expectation that they would make a greater showing.

The game kicked off with the girls mid field taking charge.

This year the team was being prompted by KL, with ML and their best player XL primed and ready to go. The ball was sent forward where the forwards Beryl, Cheryl and Merryl pushed towards the goal. Beryl sent the ball the Merryl who centred it to Cheryl and suddenly the ball was in the net and the crowd in the Ladies Stand went berserk.

The boys led by Joel the Bowl, due to his size took the ball back to the half way and kicked off determined to attack ruthlessly if necessary to even the score.

But all their efforts were thwarted as raid after raid was defended by the back row of Maisy, Daisy and Lacey. These girls were known for their ball play and most guys who played against them never complained. They were aided by the experienced skill of Olga the Oldhead in goal whose experience as once a member of the now infamous Crones All-Stars had facilitated a change of name but she still in her advancing years possessed the lithe and fit body of a woman many years her junior.

As the game drew near to a conclusion the urgency of the boys to at least even up the score became more desperate. This desperation led to them making a mistake which saw the ball suddenly at the feet of Beryl who flicked the ball across to Cheryl who back backflipped it to Merryl who slipped an inside pass to Beryl who slammed the ball into the net GOAL!!!!!!

By now the Ladies in the Ladies stand where hysterical with delight knowing the boys would be feeling dumb, duded and gutted. But they figured it was the turn of the girls to win and they stood as one and sang their own version of the song – Let’s Hear it for the Girls – which in the public interest cannot be published here.

    I like this. You made the soccer match very exciting. Sounds like the girls had a killer team and I enjoyed all the names you chose for their players. Funny enough, I had that song in my head too when I was writing 🙂 Great job.

    Great write Michael 🙂

    And I have to admit, it was gripping, as per your style, and of course, the names you choose, or perhaps they choose you, lend great characterization to the story. And I have to say, at a particular point, I was snorting with laughter, because it seems there was something slightly more than the obvious game on the field being implied. But perhaps that’s just my … ahem …. curious mind 😉
