Kevin's soccer team The Reject Rovers has lost 39 games, and if it loses one more, it will go down in the record books as the worst team in the world. To make matters worse, Kevin's tale of woe was covered in a most humiliating fashion by the local paper, and bully Sean Slacker is tormenting him daily. Kevin has to win, and with the coaching help of Alex, the new renter living in his house, his team improves dramatically. Despite a rotten rub with planted itching powder, the Rovers win and escape infamy.
