My first submission.

This image is not exactly the best of pictures, but it is the best one that I captured this weekend in my sons game that fits the challenge here.

Very slight contrast adjustment, and the original was slightly too red, so I adjusted that out of the whole image as well.

If this gets the top half I will be pleased.

Meets the challenge. There's lots of action and activity and you've managed to keep quite a good focus, considering everyone's moving, I think. The top half of the photo looks a little more cropped than you might have needed to - though I'm not sure.

I like how they are all running away -- in the same direction -- same angle. Makes it interesting & unique :)

nice pic but I would have liked to see the players running towards me so I could see the emotion in their faces

Nice crop, although I'd have cropped out a little on the RHS? A lot of sports shooting is about choosing your position. You've made a good effort here, but you would have had a really excellent shot had you been in front of the players not behind them.

I feel the action running away. I prefer letting the photographer do the running for me. Sometimes you've got to run after a great sports photo...unless you have a whole team of sports photographers with zooming abilities. Ponytail flying blue number three player and bouncing with excitement player to the right my favorites. Thanks.
