Morgan's keen to play when he signs up for the soccer team--but unfortunately so is Aldeen Hummel, the Godzilla of Grade Three.
Morgan takes it easy on the field, but Aldeen is a maniac, playing hard and dirty and getting way too many penalties. To make matters worse, the whole team blames Morgan when they lose. Morgan wants to quit, but if he does the team won't have enough players for the big tournament. As the play-offs near, however, both Morgan and Aldeen find unexpected ways to help the team triumph.
Great Play, Morgan is a hilarious story about perseverance against great odds.
