Falling asleep in Q3 : how do I keep the team focused?

Our 13Bs keep falling asleep in quarter 3 and letting their opposition back into the game. Any tips to keep them sharp and focused? It's a close leader board so we need to find a way to push and rise above. Thanks

This is something that I have struggled with before. To overcome it, we decided that the 3rd quarter was going to be "our quarter" we would therefore, despite the scoreline, aim for a win in the 3rd quarter. Perhaps offer a reward at training for a 3rd quarter victory. 

Hi Joanna,  For most teams the third quarter is the 'Championship quarter' so we make sure we put our best team on for that quarter.  So, my suggestion is that you have your starting 7 on for quarter 3 and let the whole team know - 'This is the championship quarter, this is the quarter we put our foot down.'  This works for me with my 13/14Bs.

Thank you both. I will try these strategies. Much appreciated.
