Hi all.
Does "play a ball" mean to send a pass" here?
HAO plays a ball for Abby at the far post, but it's just a second too early.

    Hello. My friend says that "play" means to receive here. Is that right?
    I don't see how that can work. There is next to no content in Tweets, but play is an active thing in most sports, I would think the player is doing something more than just receiving usually.
