More Where That Came From Fans of Robert Burleigh's ode to basketball, Hoops, will be drawn into the soccer action from the opening page of Goal. ""Score tied. Muscles tense. Ball drops. After it--quick!"" Readers learn soccer terms such as ""backpedaling"" and ""chip pass"" while watching the players use the field in Stephen T. Johnson's energized illustrations. ( Mar.)
