? During the half-time of the game, Ray found his players pouring their tea down the sink secretly. He wanted to tell Hilda about her terrible tea. But the players were terrified. ? Ray went to meet Hilda but he saw Hilda bully the man who complained about her tea. He decided to wait until the end of the game. After talking to Hilda, Ray went back with a tea urn rammed on his head. He was angry and embarrassed. Suddenly, Nick broke his leg. Hilda threatened Ray to let her play in the team. Ray finally agreed unwillingly.
? Hilda became a goalie but someone made bad comments on her. She was very angry. However, she stopped City from scoring a goal and she herself did in the game. The whole team clapped for her. ? Nick's leg was better and wanted to play again. So Hilda had to be back as a tea lady. She was very unhappy.
? Ray put Hilda in charge of the new tea machine. Hilda was satisfied with her new job and had never bullied others ever since.
