What is a good lens for shooting youth indoor sports when I will be close to the action?

I'm going to be taking pictures at an youth (8-12) indoor futsal tournament in a couple of weeks. What would be a good (Nikon) lens to rent for the day?
The tournament will be held on an indoor roller hockey rink, with lighting that is somewhat decent. I will have access to the rink while the games are going on, so long focal length isn't too much of a priority.
I've got a 50mm f/1.8 that can take very good indoor sports photos, but would a telephoto f/2.8, like the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G AF-S ED
or a Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 II EX DC HSM
be a better choice? Or do I need to stay with the wider aperture, in which can maybe a Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S
I've got a Nikon D5100 if that matters.
