አንዲስዋ ወንዶች ልጆች ኳስ ሲጫወቱ እየተመለከተች ነው። ከልጆቹ ጋር ተቀላቅላ መጫወት ፈለገች። አሰልጣኙንም ከልጆቹ ጋር እግር ኳስ ልምምድ መስራት ትችል እንደሆነ ጠየቀችው።

Andiswa watched the boys play soccer. She wished that she could join them. She asked the coach if she can practise with them.

አሰልጣኙ እጆቹን ወገቡ ላይ አደረገ። ‹‹በዚህ ት/ቤት ወንድ ልጆች ብቻ ናቸው እንዲጫወቱ የተፈቀደላቸው፣›› አለ።

The coach put his hands on his hips. “At this school, only boys are allowed to play soccer,” he said.

ልጆቹ ሄዳ ‹‹ኔት ቦል›› እንድትጫወት ነገሯት። እነሱም ለሴት ‹‹ኔት ቦል›› እንደሆነ፣ እግር ኳስ ግን ለወንድ ልጆች እንደሆነ ነገሯት። አንዲስዋ ተናደደች።

The boys told her to go play netball. They said that netball is for girls and soccer is for boys. Andiswa was upset.

በሚቀጥለው ቀን ት/ቤቱ ታላቅ የአግር ኳስ ግጥሚያ ነበረበት። አሰልጣኙ በጣም ተጨንቋል፤። ምክንያቱም የቡድኑ ወሳኝ ተጫዋች በህመም ምክንያት መጫወት ባለመቻሉ ነበር።

The next day, the school had a big soccer match. The coach was worried because his best player was sick and could not play.

አንዲስዋ ወደ አሰልጣኙ እየሮጠች ሄዳ እንድትጫወት እንዲፈቅድላት ለመነችው። አሰልጣኙ ምን ማድረግ እንዳለበት ግራ ገባው። ከዚያም አንዲስዋ ቡድኑን እንድትቀላቀል ፈቀደላት።

Andiswa ran to the coach and begged him to let her to play. The coach was not sure what to do. Then he decided that Andiswa could join the team.

ጨዋታው በጣም ፈታኝ ነበር። በመጀመሪያው ግማሽ የጨዋታው ክፍለ ጊዜ ማንም ጎል ሊያስቆጥር አልቻለም።

The game was tough. Nobody had scored a goal by half time.

በሁለተኛው አጋማሽ የጨዋታው ጊዜ፤ ከልጆቹ መካከል አንዱ ኳስ ለአንዲስዋ አቀበላት። ኳሱን በፍጥነት ወደ ጎል እያንከባለለች ሄደች። ከዚያም ኳሱን በኃይል አክርራ መታችውና ጎል አስቆተረች።

During the second half of the match one of the boys passed the ball to Andiswa. She moved very fast towards the goal post. She kicked the ball hard and scored a goal.

ተመልካቹ በደስታ አበደ። ከዚያ ቀን ጀምሮ ሴቶችም በት/ቤቱ ኳስ እንዲጫወቱ ተፈቀደላቸው።

The crowd went wild with joy. Since that day, girls were also allowed to play soccer at the school.
