I could see concern or worry on the faces of Gayle’s teammates when she fell during the soccer game. Gayle did get up again and wanted to keep playing, but I felt concern or an interest in her well-being since I didn’t know how she was really feeling. There was concern or fear among the coaches that Gayle would not be able to score with a sore foot, but they still did not want to take her out of the game. I wanted to make sure she didn’t get hurt any worse, so whether or not she scored a goal was not my concern or matter to look at closely!
