At the hospital he meets his dad… “Dad,” says Sanjo sobbing. “It’s gonna be okay son, just promise you you’ll take of your mother and continue your soccer dream,” says dad. “ Yes… I… will,” sobbing Sanjo says.

“Lots and lots of passing today but no action… no one has even come close to scoring a goal today” says the commentator.  “The jags have a chance now, captain cody’s running down the left sideline and theirs 2 strikers running down the middle this might be the only chance anyone gets this first half” says the commentator.
“Captain Cody is running, running, running and he crosses the ball into the middle… Aaron headers it towards the goal and WOW what a save by the goalie” says the other commentator.
“Alot more passing going on but it sure looks like Captain Cody’s team the jags are really dominating this game, Captain Sanjo’s team the spurs are really trying their best to do something” says the commentator.
“Only 2 minutes left but jags are getting another chance at the goal, jags have went all attack with 4 strikers running down the middle and behind them all is of course the captain… he passes it to mike, mike passes to josh, josh passes to Mohammed, Mohammed passes to the Captain… and the Captain fires and  GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!!!” Screams the commentator.
(Halftime) Come on guys we have to do something, were literally letting them dominate us like that. Show me what this team is made of. GET OUT THERE ARE RECK THEM SO BAD THAT THEY WISH THEY FORFEIT IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!
“Only 20 minutes left but the spurs have their first chance… they’re running an all out attack… 5 players running down” says the commentator.
“They keep passing, passing, passing… ooof the defender steals it” says the commentator.
“ Wait hold onto your horses because they’re fighting back and the spurs have possession again, Captain Sanjo running down the right sideline and what a cross and GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!!” screams the commentator. 
“1-1 tied but might go to extra time because there's only a few minutes left”.  “ The spurs are coming back with another attack… Sanjo crosses it and ooof what a foul and it's a costly one for the jags might be the only chance the spurs will have to get in front… penalty kick in the box.
Captain Sanjo is obviously gonna take it because… well he’s the best” says the commentator.
“But wait Sanjo is telling the player who got hurt, jake to take the penalty” says the commentator. “Wow how nice is that… Jake takes it and GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!!, the spurs have beaten the undefeated jags in the finals and have won this league.” excitedly screams the commentator.
