The Huddle: There are two spectacular blocks this point...what happened to create them?
Mike Whitaker: The first block by Hector was created by slightly poor execution on the throw. The throw is at Seth's back shoulder as opposed to being out in front. Hector has no shot at that D if the throw is more to space in front of the thrower. However, the wind conditions made throwing space passes in that direction very difficult. On the second one, Parker was trying to zip the disc to a Bravo player on the far sideline. The actual D, which was spectacular, came from a help defender reacting to the throw once the wind had changed its course.
Andrew Fleming: As we saw with Bravo's quick breaks early in the game, a well-placed pull creates opportunities for the defense. In this case Sockeye doesn't get a block right away, but forcing Bravo to work the full field leads to enough opportunities that one pays off. On the turn, Hector shows why a defender must push hard on an in-cut even when beaten by a few steps. Seth returns the favor by aggressively flying to the disc in the endzone. Both throws cut across the face of the D and floated just enough for a quick defender to jump on them.
