If your household hasn't blocked HBO because of those danged Big Love polygamists, check out Utahn Jenny MacKenzie's short film Kick Like a Girl this evening (it's on early; don't accidentally tune in late and get assaulted by Real Sex 89). The HBO blurb:

"An undefeated third-grade girls' soccer team competes in the boys' division--and shows what 'kick like a girl' really means, on and off the playing field. With humor and honesty, this documentary reveals the reality of boy-girl issues by following The Mighty Cheetahs, an all-girls soccer team in Utah. Narrated by 8-year-old Lizzie, a self-described 'soccer girl' who doesn't let juvenile diabetes, elbow blocks or grass stains interfere with her desire to compete, Kick Like a Girl reminds us all of the lessons learned in competitive athletics and how sports has been one of the most effective instruments of social change in our lifetime. Directed, produced and coached by Jenny Mackenzie. Written by Jenny Mackenzie and Jennifer Jordan."
