Theatrical Release: June 5, 2003
DVD Release: June 5, 2003


As soccer season begins for Cole and Dylan, their dad and coach needs to leave on some out-of-town business. With their coach gone, the boys’ mom and wacky aunt take over the team. After some practices and their first game, the parents of the boys on the team call to tell coach that their kids are off the team. Everyone is discouraged until a greasy mystery man saves Cole and Dylan from being hit by a car and shows his impeccable soccer skills.

The boys go talk to the “mystery man” to learn that his name is Rudy. They ask him to help coach the team and he says no at first, but eventually ends up helping the boys improve their skills. All the boys who quit the team come back because Rudy is helping coach the team. The boys improve greatly, however they still lose games. After a lot of practice and inspiration by all three coaches, the Terriers win games, and make it far in the league.

The Terriers lose their last game but find out later that they have made it to the championships by default. By this time, Cole and Dylan learn Rudy’s real identity and that some evil men are out to kill him. Rudy makes the boys promise not to tell anyone about his true identity, but the boys tell their aunt and they plan a way to get Rudy to the final game even though he is being hunted.

This fun-filled film is one to watch with the whole family. With the story line ever-fresh and exciting, you never know what’s around the corner for Dylan, Cole, and the rest of the Terriers. You watch as the team improves and prospers, and get drawn into the adventures and meetings that the boys have. This wonderful adventure into soccer and the lives or Dylan and Cole will leave you wanting to watch it over and over again. Like any great movie, this one lets you identify with the characters and feel what they feel, and with the ever-changing experiences of the boys, this promises to be an adventure you won’t soon forget!
