Notes: With no team in rural Innisfil, Zoey tries out for Bantam girls team the Barrie Sharks. She makes the cut and, knowing that the income from her family's farm won't cover the fees, pushes herself to overcome her shyness and try to raise her own funding. Zoey's talent and eagerness on the ice impress Coach Mikom, team captain Tia, and goalie Anika. But her skills challenge rich Mel for prominence on the team. Teammate Kat makes Zoey embarrassed by her rural background, and Zoey's shame at her father's behaviour at a game gives a player on another team the opportunity to bully Zoey, make her lose her temper and interfere with her game.
