1st attacker dribbles 10 yards and then plays a 1-2 with winger around defender (pole).

Coaching points:

+ Cross - Get hips rotated around. Take touch towards near post if necessary. Decide on low driven cross versus lofted ball to back post.

+ Forwards - timing of runs so attacking ball towards goal. Near and far post run. Keep chest faced at ball so can see where cross is going. 1st time strike on goal.

+ Goalie - When to come out versus stay on line. Footwork across goal. Cover near post first and then move back as ball nears endline.
