sofa chair.
Now about this professor, she is
Micky's sister, she has left her
home and lives on her own; she does
not speak to her father at all.

moved out of the house.

without Ricky. We have to win, for
his sake. We owe it to him.
EXT. DAY - FOOTBALL FIELD - MORNING
The two teams St Mary's and St Xavier line up on the field.
PRINCIPAL
Let us pause before the match for a
two minute silence to honor one of
the greatest heroes this college
has ever seen, Ricky Gonzolo. He
was a good student, a good friend,
and above all a loving son. Rest
in peace Ricky, we are going to
miss you.
The referee blows the whistle. The match starts. The team
plays like they were possessed. Andy tackles the opponent,
passes the ball to Monty, Monty is tackled by the opponent,
he falls. Foul is awarded to the team. Ranjit takes the
free kick. Throws a header to Micky who heads home a
winner.
The team jumps with joy, all gather round Micky to hug him,
the cheerleaders dance to their tune. Robyn puts in her
best performance.
Half time score 1-0

You know team; Ricky will be

I want you to go out there and play
like you have never played before.
Do it for Ricky.
EXT. DAY - FOOTBALL FIELD - AFTERNOON
The team takes the field.
The opponents tackle the players; re-possess the ball after
tackling Micky. They head for the goal, the boy dribbles
the ball pass Ranjit, Andy, kicks the ball from the side.
The ball rushes past the goalkeeper Rohit. Score 1-1
20 seconds to go, Rocco kicks the ball high in the air,
Micky jumps and heads it towards Ranjit, Ranjit dribbles
towards the goal, passes to Sonny, Sonny passes it back.
Ranjit runs forward, tries a high kick, the ball curls over
the goalkeeper's head and lands inside the goal. The
referee blows the whistle, the game is over. The
cheerleaders scream and rush on the field; they dance their
dance in the middle of the field. Score 2-1
MICKY
(Looks up to heaven)
That was for you Ricky, a prefect
match.
EXT - THE FOOTBALL FIELD - MORNING - BACK TO PRESENT DAY
The team has finished practicing, Angie and Ronnie walk
hand in hand.
RONNIE
What is the good news you wanted to
tell me.
ANGIE
(Steps close to
Ronnie, whispers in
his ears)
RONNIE
You're what? Hugs Angie, lifts her
up and turns her around.
Takes out a coin from his pocket. Shows it to Angie.
RONNIE (CONT'D)
This was Ricky's lucky coin. Heads
it’s a boy, tails it’s a girl.
RONNIE THROWS THE COIN UP IN THE AIR. CATCHES IT, SHOWS IT
TO ANGIE, ITS HEADS.
ANGIE
(laughs)
You cheated!
RONNIE
(Shows the coin to
Angie)
Both sides are heads.
