Time to Regroup!

Box Score

Time to Regroup!

On a chilly afternoon with the threat of rain looming overhead, the HSA Cheetahs were outscored 6-2 by the Van Buren Black Knights in Van Buren.  The Cheetahs took an early 1-0 lead and dominated the Black Knights in the first half, except for allowing three unanswered goals on balls that were not cleared from the danger zone.  To start the second half, the Black Knights scored 2 more unanswered goals before the Cheetahs scored again midway through the half.  A late VB score ended the scoring. 

 "Keys to Success Recap":

1. Clear ball from Danger Zone -- Needs Work!!  We cannot keep trying to dribble or pass out of danger and be successfull!  A long clear allows our forwards and mids to stay on the attack.  A clear out of bounds allows our defense to reset.     
2. Use the sidelines and work the ball deep on attack -- Achieved Somewhat. The sideline is our 12th player.  It usually provides an open lane for attacking and defensively, it stops play and lets our defense reset when our numbers are down around the ball.
3. Play smart. Look for open passing lanes, play the ball back if you can't go forward. Provide support on the attack. -- Needs work; need to play ball to open attackers or into space sooner.
4. Communication -- Getting better. I heard the most talk so far this season.

I believe this Cheetahs team is the most talented group of individual players I have ever had on one team.  This week, as we prep for the Flag City Classic Tournament, my challenge is to figure out how to make these individuals play as a TEAM.
