Description: 25x15 yard grid with 5 yard enzone at each end. Players are divided into 2 teams, each team has a supply of balls. One team attacks with 2 players while the other defends with 1. Once the ball goes out of play the attacker that has been on longer will leave the field and the team that was just defending will have another player either pass or dribble in to join the single player that was just defending so that they now lay 2v1. Team scores by passing into endzone, player is offside if in endzone before ball is passed.
