To begin the drill, the Feeder plays a ball out into the center of the field. A player from each team releases from the end line to try and win the 50-50 ball (Diagram 1). The player who wins the ball tries to turn and score on the small goal (Diagram 2). If the defender steals, he becomes the attacker. The play is over when the ball goes out of bounds or a goal is scored.
1. Take your first touch away from the defender.
2. Use a feinting/turning move to create space between you and the defender.
3. It may take two or three moves to beat a good defender.
1. Progress to 2v2.
