"How many of them do you see?" Darius asked hopefully.
"Five," replied Hunter. "If they don't get somebody else soon, they'll have to forfeit."
"And it's such a good day to play, too. That would be a shame," Darius said.
There was usually a lot of rain in the springtime, so canceling a soccer game for the weather was not unusual. But a forfeit was another story altogether.
"Well, we have two choices," Coach said as his players gathered around him. "We can accept their forfeit and go home, or we can stick around and play against the players that did show up. What do you think?"
"I'm going home. I'll see everyone next week," said Willard.
"Wait! You realize the playoffs start next week, don't you?" said Hunter. He was not happy that Willard wanted to leave.
"So what?" Willard asked. "I have other things I'd rather do."
"Let's just play against the other team today," Hunter said, in a voice loud enough that everyone on the team could hear. "One loss in the playoffs and our season is over."
"Playing today won't help us win next week," Willard replied.
"He's not saying that, Willard." Almina quickly joined the conversation with her teammates. "He just wants to play a game today."
"We've played four games already this year, and there's another one next week. That's enough for me," Willard replied.
"So what about all those games that were rained out or snowed out?" asked Kyle. "None of those games will be made up, either."
Julia also decided to speak up. "If we don't play today, and we lose in the playoffs next week, we'll have played exactly half of a ten game schedule," she told Willard. "Didn't you want more games than that? I sure did."
"OK, so let's say that I stick around," Willard said, to the delight of his teammates. "The other team still needs a player."
"I'll play with them," offered Darius. "One of their players goes to my school. It'll be fun playing against you guys, anyway."
"Just because you're our teammate, that doesn't mean we're going to go easy on you!" said Willard. Now he was looking forward to playing the game.
"I'll go let them know that we're on," said Coach, as he and Darius began running over toward the other team's players and coach.
"Hey, thanks for staying," Hunter said to Willard, who had begun stretching out his legs.
"No problem," Willard responded. "We're teammates, right?"
Hunter smiled. "At least until the playoffs are over. Hey, watch how many times I can bounce this ball off my head!"
