Lilly is excited about playing with the community league girls' soccer team. When the new girl, Sara, joins the team, there is controversy over her headscarf caused by their competing team's coach. The Wolves band together and insist that if Sara can't play with her hijab, they will not play at all. Brenda Bellingham offers a deft but convincing resolution which reinforces the willingness of Lilly, her team and their opponents to be open and welcoming to children of diverse backgrounds.
