(Play another 5v5 game in other half if enough players; If not, add bumpers/neutrals on outside)

Coaching Points:

~See one, screen one positioning to take away vertical pass (check shoulder for targets/goals); Distance from attacker: "as ball arrives, I arrive"; Cues to press: poor touch, bouncing ball; facing backwards; MENTALITY - lose possession -> win it back!; If beat, recover centrally behind ball

Progression:

+ Go to full width of field if defense too successful
