So today at lunchtime I was playing football with people in my year, me and another guy lets call him Jack(not his real name) were runnning for the ball when he barges me with his shoulder into my chest sending me flying into a little year 7 (clearly a foul), not wanting to loose the ball i sprinted after him and pushed him hard once he had lost the ball. He started shouting and squared up to me, then another guy pushed us apart. We carried on the game like normal without saying another word to eachother.
He only did this because he could not beat me to the ball (he likes to think he's one of he fastest people when I am roughly the same speed as him) and I'm not into football, I only play for the social aspect and the exercise.
However I still feel like there is tension between both of us, we are friends not that close but we talk to eachother at break/lunch and during lessons. Tomorrow I have a lesson with him where there is only 8 people in the class and me, Jack and Kieran sit together, chat and have a laugh.
I don't know how to move forward from this as I was waiting for him to apologise first before doing so myself as what happened was totally uncalled for.
How should I move forward from this and what should I do next?

What I would do, right, is go up to him and ask ''u want sum''

and then say "I'll give it ya"

Say sorry and see how he reacts. It's high school, you don't have to talk again after you leave anyway so there's no point making enemies.

What happens on the pitch, stays on the pitch.
You beat him; be the bigger man and pretend it never happened.
That is what sport is really about: being a good sport.
