Synopsis

Shoot-out by Michael Hardcastle

The Goal Kings are going through a bad patch: their league form is dipping, their star striker can't control his temper in front of the referee, and some of the parents are calling for the coach to be replaced. Then the Kings' most important match of the season ends in a penalty shoot-out.
