I would have metered manually before the action started.

Spot metered off the grass in an area that is lit by the sun.

Taken a few frames to insure the histogram isnt ugly.

Shoot away.

If the light changes...just re-meter off the grass....and compensate the same amount if you had any fine tuning after the first metering experiment.

Manual metering is always my choice except in rapidly changing light.

exactly, when in doubt use spot and manual.

Warning....Follow my advice at your own risk.
I dont know my aperture from a hole in the ground.
