Best Answer

Sports like hockey or soccer require a great amount of energy to play. When you play these sports your body, more specifically your muscles, use up oxygen and nutrients. Having lungs helps a person breathe and get oxygen to their muscles. When muscles have oxygen they don't get tired as quickly and the person can keep playing
