Shoot to Score
by Sandra Richmond
Steven Edwards' worst nightmare has come true: Playing defence for the B team.
Steven Edwards' worst nightmare has come true: playing defence on the B team of his West Vancouver pee wee hockey league.
Things get worse when his coach starts picking on Steven, and the coach's bully son Josh pressures him into some really stupid pranks. When they get caught and are forced to confess, however, the feeling in the dressing room lightens, and the players and coach start to speak honestly with one another. Soon Steven realizes the B team isn't such a bad place to be, and his squad's fortunes change for the better.
Action-packed and high-spirited, Shoot to Score is the story of how an average hockey player finally get his break.
