Pinanood ni Andiswa ang mga batang lalaking naglalaro ng soccer. Gustong-gusto niyang sumali sa praktis kanila. Nagpaalam siya sa coach.

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

Andiswa regardait les garçons jouer au football. Elle souhaitait pouvoir se joindre à eux. Elle demanda si elle pouvait pratiquer avec eux.

“Dito sa iskul, lalaki lang pwedeng maglaro,” sabi ng coach nang nakapamewang.

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

L’entraîneur mit ses mains sur ses hanches. « À cette école, seulement les garçons ont le droit de jouer au football, » lui dit-il.

Kinantiyawan si Andiswa ng mga batang lalaki at sinabing mas bagay siya sa netball na pambabaeng laro. Nainis si Andiswa.

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

Les garçons aussi lui ont dit d’aller jouer au netball. Ils ont dit que le netball est pour les filles et que le football est pour les garçons. Andiswa était fâchée.

Sa sumunod na araw, may malaking laban sa iskul. Nag-alala ang coach kasi maysakit ang pinakamagaling niyang manlalaro.

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

Le lendemain, l’école avait un grand match de football. L’entraîneur était inquiet parce que son meilleur joueur était malade et ne pouvait pas jouer.

Nagmakaawa si Andiswa sa coach na payagan siyang maglaro. Hindi alam ng coach kung ano ang gagawin. Pero pumayag na rin siya sa huli.

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.

Andiswa courut vers l’entraîneur et le supplia de la laisser jouer. L’entraîneur ne savait pas quoi faire. Finalement, il décida de laisser Andiswa se joindre à l’équipe.

Magaling ang kalaban. Half time na pero wala pang nakaka-iskor.

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

Le match fut difficile. À la mi-temps, personne n’avait encore compté de but.

Sa second half, pinasa ng isang bata ang bola kay Andiswa. Mabilis siyang tumakbo palapit sa goal. Sinipa niya ang bola. Pasok sa goal!

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.

Pendant la deuxième période du match, un des garçons passa le ballon à Andiswa. Elle se déplaça très rapidement vers le poteau du but. Elle shoota dans le ballon fort et compta un but.

Tuwang-tuwa ang lahat. Mula noon, pinayagan na ang mga babaeng maglaro ng soccer.

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

La foule devint folle de joie. Depuis ce jour, les filles ont le droit de jouer au football à l’école.
