Practice Monday

I was asked about the defense but there’s not a lot to say; today I was there for only half of practice and all I saw was full field transition play and 4X4. It’s great to see that Hooper has elevated his game, yet again. Nobody is getting by him and he had 2-3 strips that I saw. We have a shut-down corner. If he is not an AA I will be shocked. Conners is like a stallion going upfield. But he needs to work on his shot a bit. There’s a walk-on, Kology from NJ, mostly at LSM, who was mixing it up whenever he was out there. That's important since we are thin on d.

Goalies Thompson and Rode look fine; but I have not seen a spectacular save yet. Rode missed on 2 passes, once over-throwing Conrad on the sideline at midfield by 20 ft, and another one up the middle to the midline that was short and was intercepted. The good news is that he had several saves followed by quick short to medium on the money outlet passes.

I saw attackman Laviano ride very energetically a couple of times (I like this guy a lot.); Smith at ssdm scored twice in transition; Fersen showed off his excellent stick skills; Greco looks more athletic than I remember.

Matt Moore continues to play very good d (in addition to his outstanding offense). We are going to have 3 of the best middies in the country.

On offense, Herring had 2 outstanding passes; D’Amario is being very aggressive and looks great; Milan is still working on the accuracy of his cannon.

  The other spot to be concerned about would be ssdm. -- 1moreUVAfan 09/26/2017 8:34PM
