We want a pitcher; not a belly itcher
Going into the competition they didn't know how many shots there would be or the type of shots required. The closer they came to losing the more desperate they were. They probably hoped that, if they saved the kids to shoot last in the final rotation, the game would be over before they were needed.

The pressure of the situation didn't even seem to bother any of the shooters as much as I expected. The 10 yr old cried at the end because he was disappointed in himself and thought that he'd let the "team" down. He wasn't demoralized by the razzing.
Was anything said about what the shooters got out of the competition?
