When Stookie Norris's older brother, Greg, gets his picture in the paper for scoring three goals in one game, Stookie is dazzled. Greg insists strikers should try to score a hat trick every game, though Stookie's coach has never told him that. Still, when the Soccer 'Cats have their next game, Stookie does his best to score three goals -- even though it means running wild all over the field chasing the ball. But is that really the best way for him to play his position?
