open with some 4v2 zone transfer

complete 5 passes then score a point by transferring the ball to a player who makes an angled run towards the other game area. two groups go side by side.

look to expand the game to a doubled area 8 defenders on outside with

3 center mids attacking with them against 5 defenders looking to complete 5 passes and switch grids to switch out.

adding the switching element will be more difficult so I've added some wide players.
