Things come to a head when a former teammate changes schools and becomes the opposition!

Things come to a head when a former teammate changes schools and becomes the opposition!
Nick has proven himself by helping the Cannons through the early rounds of the State Cup. Now, with talented rival Kane Kruger at a different school and sports agent Ricky Comino checking out Nick's talent on the field, Nick's dream of playing professional football like his superstar dad is looking a lot closer.

If only the rest of high school was as easy.

The National School of Football has a strict 'No Pass, No Play’ rule and when Nick fails his History test, Principal Vale decides to get tough. If Nick doesn't improve his grades he may find himself out of the Cannons altogether.

Can Nick stay on the team long enough to face off against Kane and lead the Cannons to their first State Cup Knockout title?
