A volleyball game was in action at Canterlot. Ditto was the coach for one team, but it was losing 16 to 19.

News Pony: And welcome back to another exciting game in the E.V.L. the Equestrian volleyball League. I'm Mike Richards, and with me is Allen Woods. What do Du think of this game so far Allen?
News pony 2: I think it's a good game so far, but I do want the Canterlot Humans to win.
News Pony: Yes, they are losing 16 to 19. Hopefully for Ditto the coach, they will catch up.
News pony 2: For those of Du just tuning into this game, here are the players. On the Canterlot Humans is Joe Proxon, Thomas Canfield, Erik Estrada, Mimi Retcon, Sunny, and Silver.
News Pony: The team they're playing against is the Fillydelphia Phoenix's. Their team members are Miguel Vixon-

While the news ponies were going over the players on the Phoenix's, one of their team members hit the ball out of bounds.

News pony 2: And the Fillydelphia Phoenix's have hit the ball out of bounds, giving the Humans a point.
News Pony: Now it's bad news for the Phoenix's, as Thomas Canfield is now about to serve.
News pony 2: Thomas is the best server in all of Equestria. No pony is as good as him.
Thomas: 17 serving 19. *Hits ball over the net*
Fillydelphia Phoenix Ponies: I got it! *Bump into each other letting the ball hit the ground*
News Pony: Ooh, that's gotta hurt.
News pony 2: It'll certainly hurt for the Humans if they don't score enough points. The game is about to end in 45 seconds.
Thomas: 18 serving 19. *Hits ball over the net*
Fillydelphia Phoenix pony 4: It's not going over.

But the ball did go over the net, and landed on the floor before anyone could get it.

News Pony: Now the Humans are tied. They just need one Mehr point to win, and it'll be their victory.
Thomas: 19 serving 19. *Hits ball over the net*
Fillydelphia Phoenix pony 6: *Hits the ball over the net*
News pony 2: Ooh! One of the Phoenix's just set the ball over the net, but thankfully, Joe passed the ball to Silver, and he hits it over the net.
Fillydelphia Phoenix pony 5: *Passes the ball to a teammate*
Fillydelphia Phoenix pony 2: *Hits the ball over the net*
News pony 2: Only twenty Sekunden left. Can the Humans score another point in time?
Mimi: *Passes the ball to Erik*
Erik: *Passes the ball to Joe* Spike it!
Joe: *Spikes the ball*
News Pony: Joe surprises the Phoenix's with a spike. No one was able to get that one!
News pony 2: Now the Humans are in the lead 20 to 19.

A loud glocke rang indicating that time is up.

News Pony: And that's the end of the game. The Canterlot Humans have won 20 to 19 against the Fillydelphia Phoenix's.
News pony 2: Let me tell you, Thomas was really great out there with the serving.
News Pony: You've sagte it Allen. Nopony will ever be a better server then Thomas Canfield.

After the match, Ditto made his team stay in the gym. He was proud of his team winning, but he wasn't too thrilled about part of the game where they were losing.

Ditto: Alright everypony. Your comeback in the ending of that game was outstanding. However, Du need to improve your performance. Especially Du Thomas.
Thomas: Me?
Joe: He's right. Du maybe our best server, but you're not good at everything else.
Ditto: He's right. Du don't pass the ball to your teammates, Du caught the ball a few times when the other team hit it towards you, and you're certainly not good at spiking.
Thomas: I just don't see the need to spike the ball.
Erik: Hey man, spiking the ball is important, especially if you're close to the net.
Ditto: Right. I think all of Du need to practice. Come over to my house tomorrow morning for training.
Thomas: Alright. May we go?
Ditto: Sure.
Thomas: *Leaves the gym with Joe, Erik, Silver, Mimi, and Sunny*

At Thomas' house

Thomas: *Sitting at the abendessen tabelle with Kenny*
Martha: *Brings chinese Essen to Kenny, and Thomas* Enjoy.
Thomas: Oh we will. Right Kenny?
Kenny: Yeah.
Martha: That's good to hear. *Walks to television*
Thomas: You're not having abendessen with us?
Martha: I'm not hungry. *Turns on TV*
Announcer: And now, the moment you've all been waiting for, it's the 32nd Daring Do film, Daring Do Rides The Bus.
Daring Do: No!!!!!!!!
Announcer: Can she survive torture on wheels?
Daring Do: *Standing in the bus, because there are no seats available. The bus stops, and she goes flying through the front window* take it easy on the brakes!
Announcer: Crowded spaces, bad smells, and traffic jams galore.
Daring Do: Get me out of here!!
Announcer: Daring Do Rides The Bus. Arriving in theaters everywhere on April 1st.
Thomas: Must be an April Fool's joke.
Announcer: Oh, and before the trailer ends, this is not an April Fools joke. This is a real movie.

Weiter morning, everypony was at Ditto's house.

Ditto: Now listen up. We're close to winning the E.V.L. All we gotta do is beat the Icebergs in the semi finals, then beat the Spiders in the championship.
Mimi Retcon: Who came up with those names?
Ditto: Don't know, don't care, but they sound stupid.
Mimi Retcon: How did Du know I was going to say that?
Ditto: Because I'm your coach. I know everything about you. We'll start off practice with balance. Du can't play volleyball if Du can't stand on your back legs, so we'll do some gymnastics.
Silver: Do we even have any balance beams?
Ditto: Yep. *Uses magic to make the balance beams appear* I had these in my closet for- *Hears loud noises in his room* Excuse me. *Goes away*
Thomas: I'll start. *Gets on the balance beam, and starts walking on his back legs*
Joe: So far, so good.
Thomas: Thanks. *Gets to the other end of the balance beam* Now for my Weiter trick. *Stands on his front legs, making his back legs stick up in the air*
Erik: Oh boy.
Mimi Retcon: Showoff.
Thomas: *Walks on the balance beam with his front legs*
Ditto: *Returns* Good work Thomas, but what legs are Du supposed to be standing on?
Thomas: My back.
Ditto: Good. Remember that. Whose next?

Outside of Ditto's house, he was still training his team.

Ditto: Now for this part of our practice we're going to practice setting the ball. When it comes towards you, just stick your front legs up in the air, and push the ball away with your hooves. Make sure it goes high enough when Du push it. Any questions?
Sunny: I got one. Why are Du telling us to push the ball instead of hitting it?
Ditto: Because, hitting, and pushing are two different things. When Du hit the ball, Du make it go at a far distance. When Du push it, you're making it go far in altitude. That's good for passing the ball to teammates.
Joe: Are Du gonna let us practice, oder are Du going to lecture us?
Ditto: Sure, take the ball. *Throws ball to Joe*
Joe: *Catches the ball* Silver. *Sets the ball to Silver*
Silver: *Sets the ball to Thomas*
Thomas: *Sets the ball to Mimi Retcon*
Mimi Retcon: *Falls as she sets the ball*
Ditto: Stop.
Sunny: *Catches the ball*
Ditto: Are Du alright Mimi?
Mimi Retcon: Yes.
Ditto: Let's try something else.

At a gymnasium with a projector on a Wand to their right.

Ditto: Alright, you've all heard of the Hedgehog In Ponyville movies. Correct?
Thomas: Oh yeah.
Silver: Yes.
Joe: Yeah.
Mimi Retcon: I haven't.
Ditto: Then Du are about to watch a part of it. Now pay attention.

The projector was turned on, and part of the movie was playing.

Volk: *Gets bag of dirt full, and gives it to Sigmund*
Sigmund: *Passes bag to Airborne*
Airborne: *Passes bag to regenbogen Dash*
regenbogen Dash: *passes bag to Sacred Symphony*
Sacred Symphony: *Passes bag to Shredder*
Shredder: *Passes bag to Jade*
Jade: *Passes bag to Bartholomew*
Bartholomew: *Passes bag to Brewster*
Brewster: *Puts bag on bed*

The movie was paused Von Ditto, and the projector screen turned blue.

Ditto: That scene was from Hedgehog In Ponyville: The Great Escape. Can Du guess why I would Zeigen Du that?
Thomas: To Zeigen us how they were working together.
Ditto: That's right. They work together to get the dirt out of the tunnel. Du guys are going to work together to pass the ball to each other. Line up Weiter to each other.

And they did.

Ditto: Alright. Mimi, pass the ball. *Throws ball high enough for Mimi Retcon to pass to her teammates*
Mimi Retcon: *Passes the ball to Sunny*
Sunny: *Passes the ball to Thomas*
Thomas: *Passes the ball to Erik*
Erik: *Passes the ball to Joe*
Joe: *Passes the ball to Silver*
Silver: *Sets the ball, and then catches it*
Ditto: Fantastic. There's one Mehr thing I want Du guys to practice, and then Du can go home. There are two things I want Du to do.
Thomas: I thought Du sagte there was only one thing.
Ditto: Yeah, well.. I lied about that. I want Du to practice concentration, and spiking the ball.
Erik: I can't believe Du lied to us coach.
Ditto: Yeah, I know. Now start practicing, first on spiking. Thomas, Mimi, and Joe, Du go on one side of the net, and the rest of Du stay on the other side.
Silver: That's fine. I had no anticipation on leaving this side of the net anyway.
Ditto: Good. *Throws volleyball to Thomas* Spike it Tom.
Thomas: *Spikes the ball, but it goes too far*
Ditto: You're hitting it too high. Du want the ball to head towards the ground once Du hit it. Try again. *Gets another volleyball, and throws it at Tom*
Thomas: *Spikes the volleyball, and it hits Erik*
Erik: Ow! What was that for?
Thomas: Lets just say I was contemplating on whether I should get revenge on Du for tripping me down those stairs last week.
Erik: It was an accident, and I sagte sorry.
Thomas: And now I forgive you.
Ditto: Save the arguing for later. Okay?
Thomas: Okay.
Erik: Sorry.

After everyone practiced spiking

Ditto: Let's focus on concentration now. Du don't wanna lose focus on the ball if it's heading towards you, otherwise you'll let me, and all the Fans down. Three on three match, Du all stay on the same side you're on, and pretend I'm not here. Go.
Erik: *Gives ball to Sunny*
Sunny: 0 serving 0. *Serves the ball, but it hits the ground*
Ditto: The first team to get ten points is the winner.
Thomas: *Gets the ball* 1 serving 0. *Hits the ball over the net*
Erik: I got it! *Sets the ball to Silver*
Silver: *Bumps the ball over the net*
Joe: *About to get the ball*
Ditto: BLAH!!
Joe: *Looks at Ditto* What?
Ditto: Hit the ball!!

But it was too late. The ball hit the ground.

Ditto: Concentrate Joe. Du just gave up the lead for your team. Erik, rotate positions with your team.
Erik: Got it. *Rotates positions with his teammates, and gets the ball* 2 serving 1.
Ditto: 87!!
Erik: *Hits the ball too far to the right*
Ditto: Du got the score wrong Von the way. It was tied Von 1.
Erik: Ugh. *Runs to get the ball*
Ditto: So far, Joe, and Mr. Estrada are the only ones that got distracted. Everypony else is doing good.
Thomas: *Rotates positions with his teammates*
Joe: I guess I'm serving.
Ditto: That's right.
Erik: *Throws the ball to Joe, and returns to his position*
Joe: 2 serving 1. *Serves the ball, and it heads towards Erik*
Ditto: Did Du hear that Erik? Hey, look at me!!
Erik: *Concentrates on the ball, and hits it*
Ditto: Nice work Erik.
Mimi Retcon: *Hits the ball, and it lands on the net*
Ditto: Who is going to get this one?
Thomas: *Runs to the net, and taps the ball*
Silver: *Hits the ball under the net*
Ditto: Hey Silver, in case Du didn't notice, the ball is supposed to go over the net.
Silver: No kidding.
Joe: *Grabs the ball* 3 serving 1. *Serves the ball, and it heads towards Sunny*
Sunny: *Hits the ball with her head*
Ditto: Good Bewegen there Sunny, but you're not allowed to hit the ball with your head.
Sunny: *Blushes*
Ditto: Joe, keep up the good work.
Thomas: Yeah, you're becoming just as good as me.

Mimi Retcon: *Throws the ball to Silver*

Thomas: Again? *Hits the ball, but it goes backwards*

Ditto: That's why we're practicing. *Throws ball to Silver*
Silver: *Catches the ball* 4 serving 4. *Serves the ball, and it heads towards Mimi*

News Pony: This is Mike Richards with Allen Wood live at the semi finals of the E.V.L.
News pony 2: It's the Canterlot Humans versus the Boston Icebergs. Starting off the game is the Icebergs as they serve the ball, but it ends up going out of bounds.
News Pony: A good start for the Humans, but who will win this ten Minute round?
News pony 2: With Thomas serving for the Humans, it should seem obvious.
Thomas: 1 serving 0. *Hits the ball*

Five Minuten passed, and the humans were still winning 11 to 6.

News pony 2: For a pony that's really good at serving, Thomas seems to have trouble hitting the ball.

News pony 2: You're right Mike, the ball did go out of bounds there, putting the Boston Icebergs up to 8 points.
News Pony: Now there's only 4 minutes, and 58 Sekunden left in the game. Can the Humans keep their lead?
Iceberg pony 5: 8 serving 11. *Hits ball, but it doesn't go far before landing on the ground*

News Pony: Now the Canterlot Humans are rotating their positions, and Erik Estrada is serving.
Erik: *Catches the ball after someone throws it to him* 12 serving 8. *Hits the ball*

The ball rolled to the center of the net, then fell on the Iceberg side of the court.

Crowd: *Cheering*
News Pony: The Humans have scored another point.
News pony 2: Erik seems really pleased with the way he served that ball.
News Pony: I would be pleased too if I had the skill to do that.
Thomas: Erik, I'm jealous.
Erik: *Laughs* I know, I'm sorry.
Thomas: I meant in a good way. Keep it up.
Iceberg pony 2: *Kicks ball to Erik, and sulks*
Erik: Cheer up amigo. 13 serving 8. *Hits the ball*

After winning the semi finals, Ditto took his team out to celebrate at pizza Hut.

Ditto: It was a really great game, and I'm proud of all of you.
Sunny: Thanks coach.
Silver: And we'll Zeigen those Spiders what we're capable of.
Ditto: Yeah.
Thomas: Man I still can't believe that serve Du made on the net, and how the ball was just rolling on it. That was cool.
Erik: Well, when your teammate is good at serving, things happen. Du know?
Thomas: I guess that's true. I have made the ball land on the net a few times, and it has rolled to the center, falling on the other team's side.
Erik: All Du gotta do is just spike the ball.
Thomas: That's the problem though. I don't spike it.
Erik: Why not?
Thomas: The ball is too high, even if I do jump. I just can't reach it.
Erik: I don't know what to tell you. Increase your height, jump higher, do something.
Thomas: I'm working on it.

Suddenly, a TV turned on.

News Pony: We're Wird angezeigt footage of the Equestrian volleyball League that took place hours Vor in Canterlot. In one part of the game, Erik Estrada, a team member on the Canterlot Humans, served the ball, and made it roll on the net, surprising lots of ponies, and arousing our minds with a question. Is Thomas Canfield losing it?
Thomas: Somepony turn that TV off!
Waiter: *Turns off television*
Ditto: Are Du okay?
Thomas: Listen Erik, I'm the best server in all of Equestria, not you.
Erik: Hey man-
Thomas: Don't Hey man me!
Sunny: Thomas?
Thomas: Forget it, I'm outta here. *Leaves*

Weiter day, Thomas was watching TV.

News Pony: We're bringing Du live footage of a riot at Walt Disney Studios. Aschenputtel Fans are extremely angry about the Frozen Fever short that will be playing before the movie premiere.
Thomas: Bah, who cares?
Martha: *Walks toward Thomas with Kenny* Is everything alright?
Thomas: Yeah. Why isn't it okay?
Kenny: *Watching the news*
News Pony: *Talking to a rioting pony* What do Du have to say about the Frozen short?
pony 984: THAT IS THE DUMBEST Frage ANYONE EVER ASKED ME!! Frozen IS THE WORST MOVIE EVER! THEY DON'T NEED TO MAKE SHORTS FROM THAT FILM!!
Martha: Let's watch something else.
Thomas: No. Leave it. I wanna watch somepony get killed. That's what all riots are about.
Kenny: Why are Du talking like this dad?
Martha: Tom, come with me.

They both walked to the backyard.

Martha: What's wrong with you?
Thomas: Nothi-
Martha: Don't lie to me, it's not nothing. Something is bothering you, and I wanna know what it is.
Thomas: My teammate.
Martha: Which one?
Thomas: Erik.
Martha: What did he do?
Thomas: He's trying to take my spotlight with the serving.
Martha: No he is not. He just did something that no one was expecting to see, that's all. If someone-
Thomas: Okay, that's enough. This ain't a kid's Zeigen where a lesson gets learned everyday. I'm gonna call Erik, and apologize.

Thomas called Erik at his house.

Erik: *Eating grapes as he picks up the phone* Yeah?
Thomas: Erik, it's me.
Erik: What do Du want?
Thomas: I just wanted to apologize. What I sagte to Du back at the restaurant wasn't really nice.
Erik: Hey, I understand. If I were you, I probably would've done the same thing.
Thomas: Is that right?
Erik: Yeah. Tell Du what, why don't Du come over to my place?
Thomas: Yeah. Okay, I'll be right there.

At Erik's house

Erik: Ditto talked to me earlier about the way Du reacted to the news. He wasn't really pleased about it.
Thomas: And, he's kicking me off the team. Right?
Erik: No, but he will do it if Du screw up again.
Thomas: That would be terrible. Not only for me, but for him.
Erik: Why?
Thomas: If I was kicked off the team, I wouldn't have a job, now would I? Then, if Ditto got rid of me, he wouldn't have a good server anymore.
Erik: Then he'd be up a creek without a paddle.
Thomas: Yeah. The championship is in two days. Thanks for inviting me to your home, but I must go.
Erik: Take care.
Thomas: Same to you.

Two days later at the start of the Equestrian volleyball League.

News pony 4: The camera crews are ready.
News Pony: Me, and Allen are ready.
News pony 4: Good, we'll be on the air soon. In 5. 4. 3. 2.
Camera Ponies: *Start filming*
News pony 4: The following program was recorded in high definition.
News Pony: It's a beautiful Tag in Manehattan as we take a look at the championship for the Equestrian volleyball League. I'm Mike Richards, and Von my side is Allen Wood as we bring Du the news about the Canterlot Humans against the Manehattan Spiders.
News pony 2: The game hasn't started yet, but it will soon. It turns out that Thomas, and Erik are both the best servers on the Humans, after a survey a done around town. A Fan of the Humans created a survey asking which pony on the Canterlot Humans was the best, and Thomas, and Erik got tied for first place.
News Pony: It looks like the game is about to start now. Speaking of Thomas on the Canterlot Humans, he is starting the game as server. The Spiders will be in for a long day.
Erik: Give it to 'em.
Thomas: Du got it. 0 serving 0. *Hits the ball*
News Pony: I don't know about this one.
News pony 2: The ball looks like it won't go over!

The ball landed on the net.

Silver: I'll get it!
Thomas: Don't! If Du touch it, the other team gets a point.
spinne pony 3: Let's touch it!
Thomas: NO!!

The ball went onto the Spider's side of the net, just when somepony was about to hit it.

News Pony: That was close.
News pony 2: Just like his partner Erik last time with the Icebergs in the Semi Finals.
News Pony: We never should have doubted Thomas. He just scored a point for his team, and the game continues on with ninteen minutes, and twenty four secounds.
Ditto: *Watching from the sideline* Tom, Du had me worried for a moment.
Thomas: 1 serving 0. *Hits the ball*
News Pony: The ball goes over, and three ponies on the Manehattan Spiders are prepared to return the ball.
News pony 2: Unlike most games, in the championship, when a team has the ball served to them, they must pass the ball to their teammate at least one time.
spinne pony 4: *Passes ball to teammate*
spinne pony 1: *Hits ball over net*
News Pony: Silver hits the ball over, and it seems to be going high into the air.
spinne pony 3: *Hits the ball out of bounds*
News pony 2: That's another point for the Canterlot Humans.
Thomas: 2 serving 0. *Hits the ball*
News Pony: That's a good one.

He went too far, and backed up into the Wand making this sound: link

News pony 2: He went too far, and the ball lands in bounds.
Thomas: 3 serving 0. *Hits the ball*
spinne pony 5: Let me get it. *Hits the ball to a teammate*
spinne pony 1: *Hits ball over net*
Erik: I got it. *Hits ball over net*
News Pony: It's a fight! Erik Estrada is hitting the ball back, and forth to Jennifer Osborne on the Spiders.
News pony 2: None of them will give up!
spinne pony 1: *Hits the ball*
Erik: Oh no Du don't. *Hits the ball*
spinne pony 1: Leave it on your side. *Hits the ball*

But four Minuten later, the Spiders got in the lead. The score was now 6 to 8.

spinne pony 6: *Hits the ball backwards*
spinne pony 2: Hey genius, you're supposed to hit it forward.
spinne pony 6: I tried, but it's not that easy.

News Pony: Those two must really like each other.
News pony 2: Otherwise, they wouldn't be hitting it to each other back, and forth.
News Pony: With 3 Minuten and 35 Sekunden left, they better not hit it back, and forth to each other forever.
