She Scores

It's the semi final game of the season and the two teams have been locked in a ping pong game of goals.
It's the last two minutes and they're tied. You hold your breath as your daughter stabs the ring.
Two defense men and one forward swarm her.
She weaves around them, her movements purposeful. The crowd is on its feet.
She raises her stick as she drops to the ice.She flicks the ring with two seconds remaining on the clock.
She scores!
