  • Defense Needed said,

    This should have been a battle for 3rd place but both schools were out coached by Ragsdale and Northern. Both teams would be good if the coaches worked on defense instead of being so offensively focused. No concept of help side d, sliding your feet, not reaching in and proper closeouts. Players also miss shots and then jog back on d. Both teams if they make these improvements could go far.
