KIRKUS REVIEW

Win Hadley, the versatile young athlete who has starred in six other sport stories, once again acquits himself with glory in this suspenseful story of hockey at Dixboro High. Determined to have a hockey team, Win and his friends not only have to solve the problem of where to play, but they have to subdue the animosity of the town ""rich boy"", Dan Slade, a skillful but under-handed athlete whose father owns a pond and exerts substantial influence on the Disboro school board. All ends well here but not until Win has gone through his paces both on the field and off. Fast moving, emotional, a story with a hero one can worship and a villain one can hate, a good sport story for high school athletes.
