The game dragged on and a couple of minutes from the end of the game we had to stop because of some more thunder. Everyone just wanted to finish off this game.
For an hour and thirty minutes we had to wait to be able to get back onto the field, but the problem was that after an hour we found out that we would go straight to penalties. This was amazing news as we had won the last two games on penalties. Right before we went onto the field our coach got pulled into a room on the side of the building. He came out after a couple of minutes fuming and the other coach had a giant smile on his face.
"I am sorry boys, the organization changed the rules last second and it they have taken away 2 of our points and we can't catch up to first place even if we win on penalties. I am as mad as you all are and Its over. I am proud of you boys for making it this far."
I was devastated since going to nationals was something I had never achieved. This made me realize that going against clubs or organizations bigger than yours you never had the upper hand.
