Chapter One

Every Saturday morning Joe played footy with his team, the mighty Dragons.

Joe was great at kicking the ball.

He was super at bouncing it, and he was terrific at marking it too.

But when it came to handballing, Joe wasn't very good at all.

There was less than two minutes of the game to go when the ball came Joe's way.

He marked it on his chest and ran with it as fast as he could. He bounced the ball once, and then again, before he was grabbed from behind.

'Pass it to me!' yelled his teammates Ben and Lizzie.

Joe did his best to shrug off the tackle.

'Quick! Get rid of it!' shouted Angus, Joe's best friend.

Joe tried to handball the footy to Angus.

He tried to hit the ball with his fist, but he fumbled and it dropped to the ground.

'Dropping the ball!' shouted the umpire.

A player from the other team, the Wildcats, swooped in and scooped up the footy. He took off with it.

'Play on!' the umpire said. Joe and his team raced after the ball.

But the Wildcats kicked the ball through the goals – winning the game by just one point.
