ትርሓስ ደቂ ተባዕትዮ ኩዕሶ እግሪ ክፃወቱ ሪኣ፤ ናብኣቶም ተሓዊሳ ክትፃወት ደልያ። ምስአቶም ተሓዊሳ ክትለማመድ ትክእል እንተኾይና ድማ ነቲ ኣሰልጣኒ ሓቲታቶ።

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

እቲ አሰልጣኒ አእዳው አብ ሽምጡ ገይሩ። ”አብዚ ቤት ትምህርቲ ፀወታ እግሪ ኩዕሶ ንደቂ ተባዕትዮ ጥራሕ እዩ ክፃወቱ ተፈቂዱ” ኢሉ መለሰላ።

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

እቶም ደቂ ተባዕትዮ ንዓአ መርበብ ኩዕሶ ኸይዳ ንክትፃወት ነጊሮማ። ከምዚ እውን ኢሎም መርበብ ኩዕሶ ንደቂ ኣንስትዮ እግሪ ኩዕሶ ድማ ንደቂ ተባዕትዮ እዩ ምስበልዋ ትርሓስ ሓሪቃ።

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

ኣብቲ ካልአይ መዓንቲ፤ እቲ ቤት ትምህርቲ ከቢድ ውድድር ፀወታ እግሪ ኩዕሶ ነይርዎ። እቲ አሰልጣኒ አብዚ ውድድር ብጣዕሚ እዩ ሓዚኑ ነይሩ ምክንያቱ ድማ እቲ ብሉፅ ተፃወቲኡ ብምሕማሙ።

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

ትርሓስ ናብቲ አሰልጣኒ ብፍጥነት ከይዳ ንኽትፃወት ንክፈቅደላ ለሚናቶ። እቲ አሰልጣኒ እንታይ ከም ዝውስን ርግፀኛ ኣይነበረን። ደሓር ግን ትርሓስ ናብቲ ቡድን ተሓዊሳ ንኽትፃወት ፈቂዱላ።

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.

እቲ ፀወታ ከቢድ ብምንባሩ ክሳብ ጊዜ ዕረፍቲ ምንም ጎል (ሽቶ) ክምዝገብ ኣይክአለን ነይሩ።

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

ካብ ዕረፍቲ መልሲ ሓደ ተፃዋቲ እታ ኩዕሶ ናብ ትርሓስ ኣሕሊፍ ሂብዋ። ንሳ ብፍጥትን ናብ ጎል ገፅ ብምሕላፍ ብሓይሊ ብምውቃዕ ሽቶ አመዝጊባ።

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.

እቶም ተመልከቲ ወሰን ዘይብሉ ሓጎስ ተሰመዖም፤ ካብዚ ዕለት ጀሚሩ አብቲ ቤት ትምህርቲ ንደቂ ኣንስትዮ ፀወታ እግሪ ኩዕሶ ተፈቂዱ።

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