November Tournament Day Two Results

Day 2 was another great one in terms of learning for the lads.

It was the first time we'd allocated attackers and defenders so given we'd had just one practice on the concept the lads did exceedingly well to implement it under pressure. 


Playing in Division 1 meant these guys were always going to find it hard to get a win. They surprised everyone with long spells of equal possession and opportunities against the only three teams to finish in Div 1 for both tournaments so far. 

After looking like they could shock the crowd and opposition with a goal there was short periods when they'd concede 3 or four goals in quick succession only to re-establish themselves. 


I didn't see a lot of these guys but every time I looked I found them camped in the opposition half and dominating play. Playing in Division 2 should have meant these guys had a tough time but the lads performed well enough to finish second in the group. 


These boys played hard and appeared to have a great time regardless of the results. Attacking play was far better thanks to the attacking role introduced but the lads couldn't put enough balls in the opposition goal to get a win.
