Chalk up a number of goals for this swift sports story; action, a set of values, believable characters with plausible motivations and a clear story line. (Set in easy reading vocabulary with short simple sentences this will provide a natural for remedial reading purposes at a younger level.) This shows the development of Bill Jones as captain of the Meinland High hockey team. Bill, like many of his real-life counterparts, resented the limelight-seeker Cliff Beardsley, who grabbed the puck, leaving his team mates no opportunity to score. It took Bill a long time to realize that part of his responsibility as Captain included pressuring Cliff into better sportsmanship. Swift action on the ice gives tips and pointers to hockey fans.
