After a game free weekend before, nine players supported by Jandro and Florian and a lot of motivation made their way to London to play against Islington HC.

The team started the game showing much confidence in defence and willingness to move the ball around in attack to score easy goals through free space. However, it took some time to score the first goals. As Islington started defending 1:1 against one of our strongest players it took time to reorganise attack, but whenever the ball was moved around quickly and efficiently and continuous pressure was made towards Islington’s defence, new free spaces appeared and could be successfully used.

The 2nd half brought a solid defence and attack where the team worked well as a unit. However, some time into the second half, concentration was lost and the new 5:1 defence confused the players. The team needed some time to understand that there was no way for penalties in this game and that they either had to score or continue to make the ball move for some free space to score. Whenever this rule was followed, successful attack was assured. In defence the team used the game to practice helping out in 1:1 situations in defence, which had been a problem in the 1st half and became better throughout the game. Towards the end of the game, concentration came back, less balls were lost and right decisions made.

It is great to see everyone becomes more part of a team over time. Players get to know each other and the way of playing better. Now everyone is excited to play in Oxford in two weeks time.
