The Huddle: After a huck-turn each, and both sides out of their sets, what do you to reset yourselves? Is there an advantage to the offense to pick up and go fast? Does the defense prefer to opportunity to wait and rest?
Mike Whitaker: In general, there is an advantage to the offense in multi-turn situations to go fast if they can get the disc moving quickly with short passes (not the quick strike goal). If the disc is turned on the field of play, there is often a moment when the offense hangs its head after a turnover that can be exploited if the D is ready to attack. However, if the disc is turned on a huck or throw out of bounds where cutters are not in position to move it quickly, it often works better to slow things down and allow the defenders who have been sprinting up and down the field to recover before playing offense and to mentally flip the switch from the intensity of defense to the chilliness of offense.
Andrew Fleming: Often, the fast break is best option to get the offensive flow moving before the defense can clamp down. In this case, the endzone turnovers make a fast break impossible, and both sides walk it up for a full reset. Bravo makes the smart choice here putting up an upwind deep look. Chip and putt upwind is very tough here, and one big shot may give a better chance of success than slowly moving upfield. The throw just misses, but Sockeye must then work the full field again.
