Synopsis

Synopsis

Summer’s coming and school will soon be out! The Screech Owls would love to keep playing hockey, but Muck has a better idea. The Owls are going to learn why so many of the great hockey stars are devoted to the weird and wonderful game of lacrosse.

Travis, Sarah, Nish, and their friends discover lacrosse is a lot like hockey, but with a magic all its own. When the Screech Owls meet their strange new lacrosse coach, however, Travis discovers something else.

Their home town has a deadly secret. Something terrible once happened out on River Road, and a boy their own age disappeared – probably murdered.

Nish is delighted. He’s been looking for the perfect plot for his new horror movie. But as the Screech Owls begin to uncover the truth about what happened, and start filming Nish’s movie, they find they are part of a real-life horror story themselves.
