A better game than the first meeting but the Blast have a long way. Some suggestions for the team.
1. When the team pushes the sides in the attack zone, send to the middle. Too much screwing around trying to beat the defenders by McMillan and Mucino. They need to send the ball into the middle or drop the ball back then go outside in.
2. Use a five man up with a middle post and use angle runs to the box with the attackers putting the defender on their outside shoulder.
3. Use more pushes down the side from the midfield using the the wings to run onto the ball then sending to the middle for followers like Beasley did to Tenoff.
4. There is too much individual play on the wings still and not enough movement to the inside when the wing beats his defender.
It is sad to see the speed the Blast have go to waste with individual moves. Give and go, angle passes in the middle or through the middle, and crosses with inside speed could make this team a nightmare to other teams. Come together and use your advantages. Play to your opponents weakness dont try to create their weaknesses. The Hawks were slower than us on the wings and on the angle runs and the Blast did not exploit them. When we did,we score or had on goal shots. I still think this team is much better than last year. gforever
