Coaching Points:

Possession vs. Penetration

Do we have to score more goals or play for time?

Do we play concervatively or gamble on increasing our lead?

How does the mentality and emphasis of the team change as the scoreline does?

Transition upon losing/winning the ball - usually a good time from which to immeditely score from.

Communication between players - organization/team dynamics of what the objective is at that moment for the team. You will see which players are actvely taking a lead when setting up positions before the KO (taking ownership).

Other ways to keep possession? Keeping ball as individual (dribbling into space or shielding).

When the ball goes out of play how do both teams react?
