Achieving a perfect balance of sport and humour, McGonigle Scores is a certain delight for hockey fans, McFarlane fans, and anyone who enjoys a fast-moving and highly entertaining tale.
When former hockey star Skates McGonigle goes scouting homebrew talent in Northern Ontario, he finds himself outwitted at every snowbank by his archrival, Black Snead. And his blundering admirers--Maybelle Peever, Unbeatable Bates, Emma Dinwoodie and The Human Sieve--don't offer much in the way of help. McGonigle's adventures are hilarious, and McFarlane describes each key game in vivid style, with a wind up, free-for-all battle of sticks and skates that will leave the reader gasping.
