to play spoilsport {a common expression or not}?

Hello everyone:

I was wondering if the expression “play spoilsport” is used by native speakers. The examples I found on GoogleBooks were from books, mainly by Indian writers.

 Do the following sentences sound natural ?

 a. We were all psyched about going out in the field and playing soccer, but the rain played spoilsport .  

b. We were all psyched about going out in the field and playing soccer, but as soon as we went out to play, the rain became such a spoilsport.

 If not, what expression do you guys recommend that is commonly used by native-English speakers.

Thanks
