It is a combination of a football game

Sailor of the King (1953)    
When Admiral Seville was still just Lt. Seville, he had a brief affair with Canadian beauty Lucinda and, unbeknownst to him, fathered a son. Now, 20 years later, that boy (nicknamed ‘Canada’) serves in his father’s command, neither one knowing the truth about their relationship. While tracking a German raider, Seville’s ship is torpedoed and while some escape in lifeboats, Canada is taken prisoner. Damaged in the exchange as well, the German ship pulls into a well-hidden cove to affect some repairs. Canada takes the opportunity to escape, and after arming himself, he flees into the hills to conduct a guerilla war, hoping to slow the enemy’s progress down long enough for reinforcements and rescuers to arrive.
