Looking at this photo again, I’m reminded of the exclusion and pain felt by someone forced to sit on the sidelines, making it possible to photograph the game. I notice the girl standing behind the goal, looking for a pass, and am led to wonder whether she expected to get the ball and was upset when her teammate took the shot rather than the pass. I question how the defenders felt, if they had given up or just weren’t expecting the shot.
