Contact Sport

Last night, power soccer definitely became a contact sport. However, even though some of the hits might have been a little bit too hard, it is nice to see aggression. Rather let the ball roll by, people are beginning to attack the ball which is positive. The only difference is that if any of you remember when we played Syracuse, we barely got hit at all. They were able to take the ball off of us without hitting chairs. There's no way they would've ever gotten called for a foul because they never touched us, but when we run into each other, they could very possibly call a foul which could award a free kick. This is what we should shoot for. We need to not be afraid to hit while at the same time having a sense of when heading out there might not be beneficial or may even be detrimental like in the aforementioned case with the free kick. Although it may not seem like it, you can be incredibly aggressive without hitting anyone. The goal of the game is to hit the ball into the goal, so obviously you need to be aggressive in that sense, but make sure that you drive the ball down the field.
