I go to a secular school and play on the (girl's) soccer team. According to the schedule, we have quite a few games against Christian schools. I'm not sure what I should do at a game-should I not really want or try to win so my team can see that the Christian school won and therefore maybe turn to God a bit more? Or should I really try my best? I'm concerned that if I do, it might be as if I'm favoring soccer over God, and I definitely don't want that. Thank you! God bless.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
Whose Christian life is going to be a greater witness to your team mates? Yours, who they meet every week, or the players on the other team who they see once, maybe twice a season? And are you honoring God by playing half-heartedly or sabotaging the team He has placed you in? Consider:
(Also verse 17 and Ephesians 6:7.)
God wants us each to excel in what we do, wherever He has placed us, wherever we find ourselves. Not by sinning, to be clear, but you are not sinning by giving your all in an athletic match.
