I've been playing net in ball hockey for quite a while in a league in Toronto - recreational, co-ed, but as a result you get a lot of people who have no idea about defence while playing against people who know how to score.

One big piece of advice I can give you is that if you're going to use your stick to intercept or block a pass, only do it within your crease and while you're trying to stop something cross crease. That way you can still hug the post, and if you can't stop it you'll never slide across in time anyways (depending on the surface you're playing on.)

Oh, and definitely watch the spin on the ball - sometimes it can have a slider/curveball motion which can have a shot going high and wide finding it's way into your top corner.
