Another game on defense in ball hockey tonight. For a change: An easy win, 3-1.
Easy until the last two minutes... They scored their only goal with two minutes left, and they almost scored on a break-away with 30 seconds left when our defenseman got a little too agressive when he went all offense and lost the ball to the opponent who got a break-away. The man lost the ball when sticking it.
The guys told me that this was my best defense game ever. I made a big mistake just beside our net when trying to clear the zone on my knees, I hacked the ball. It went right in front of the net. If there had been an opponent in the crest, he would have got a great scoring opportunity! I've been told to shoot the ball on the boards beside the net or behind the net next time. That's good advice.
This team is supposed to be a permanent team. This is exactly what I was hoping. I'm tired of playing on individual teams where you can expect to play with the least talentful players. And our goalie is great! What we need now is to rent a rink for a few hours and create game strategies, train players on how to play, etc.
