Ending
1978, New Jersey. Gracie is the only girl in a five children soccer family, with dad a former soccer guy in high school, now Johnny is the family star. After missing a game-losing kick, he is killed in a car crash during a stormy night. Gracie comes to terms by deciding she wants to help the school beat Kingston (the team Johnny lost to) next year, but dad refuses to coach her -- she's a girl. After the coach boots her from the boys' locker room and tells her she won't play there, either, she starts slipping into running with the bad boys, including soccer team lead Kyle. After he pushes her further than she wants to go, and a few bouts with other guys, dad reels her back in and tells the coach she's going to try out for the team. The coach refuses, unless the school board approves, and Gracie manages to convince them to allow her to try out. She does, and nearly doesn't make the third and final cut, but gets on the Junior Varsity team, along with her brother Peter (who was hanging with Kyle, but finally turns away from Kyle to hang with Gracie). The team's first game is against Kingston, coach asks her to show up through it's not her team level -- they're wearing the team armband. Gracie goes, reluctantly, the assistant coach gives her #7 jersey (Johnny's and dad's number). She misses a goal kick, takes a few malicious hits from the other team's guys, but manages to boot it in and win the game. In end notes, we learn it's Gracie and others challenging the Title 9 (equal access to school athletics) allowing girls to play soccer, and that women have won the world title four times since 1991.
