Why we love Mary-Kate and Ashley's ''Switching Goals''

PREDICAMENT When the soccer league goes coed, the Stanton girls have to play for opposing teams. Though their new teams aren't a perfect fit, the girls pull off a ''great sister swap.''

MARY-KATE PLAYS Sam, a tomboy who defines hitting on boys as a soccer ball to the head

ASHLEY PLAYS Emma, a girly-girl who'd prefer to score off the field

FASHION STATEMENT MK&A do for shin pads and pigtails what Britney did for Catholic-school uniforms. Gooooooooooooal!

WHY WE LOVE IT We dig girls who can kick it with guys while wearing spikes. This is genuine girl power, not the froufrou Spice Girl kind.
