we are often the better team,for three quarters we push the opposition but in the last quarter we concede 2 or more goals.We have a massive national tournament coming up with the best teams in the country,and I am afraid that this might cost us dearly.Does anyone have a drill or structure plan I could use?
This slump could simply be down to the fitness levels of players. As the game goes by players naturally become fatigued and are unable to sustain the intensity throughout a game.
You can overcome this by finishing training sessions with a fitness drill to get players used to working under fatigue and build endurance. Similarly, regular roll on roll off replacements can help keep players fresher for longer and allow them to recover before returning to the pitch to keep the momentum going.
Hope this helps.
Might be a little late, but additionally to the fitness training suggested by Archie you could explain them to take out some of the speed during the first three quarters.
From your description it sounds that you keep pushing three quarters, and of course that is exhausting.
Taking a break now and then might give you the needed power for the end.
Don't push to hard in the first quarter. Take your time to analyse the opponent. Find their weakspots and then try to push only on the end of the quarter.
Or push only the first 5 Minutes, take a break and then push the last three again.
This way you can time your dominance time slots and regain power in your "breaks".
Good luck for your tournament
