Yeah, that final fo wasn't defended very well.

there are all sorts of wing strategies, but short story with 10 seconds left we didn't "need" to win the faceoff, we just needed to:
a) keep the ball on the ground as long as possible
or b) not let it come straight down broadway unabated

so that's not our primary objective most faceoffs as then we wouldn't win as many... but in this case at least one wing should've been positioned 10 yards south of the midline on the defensive side. from there, he is 22-23 yards from meeting a fogo streaking in at the restraining line. who is 20 yards away, in a faceoff crouch, has to win a face and pick a ball up. your wing can beat him there.

next, petey should've stepped right if he lost the clamp. and deny the md fogo the chance to push forward at full throttle to the ball. make him work around him. instead, lasalla went all in on trying to win the faceoff.

in any event, it worked out. after a brief heart attack.

  I think Petey whiffing on the FO was the worst part. -- HOOfan_1 06/01/2021 09:59AM
