The team we play against the most has a tough defense, and I need some help.

They play something almost like a cover two, with two deep guys playing a zone. Their deep guys can scoot and can really hop, taking away our biggest weapon, the deep threat.

What would be the best offense to adapt to in order to beat their defense?

Thanks.

DevilDawg,

How do they structure the rest of their defence? If they have two deeps then it's more than likely there's going to be a numbers mismatch somewhere in the field. For instance, if they're playing a 2-2-3 (from the back) then you could try playing with two handlers and exploiting the numbers you have in the middle of the field with a short-pass running game, that way you negate the advantage that your opposition has with two deeps. Your tactics will vary, though, based on the full structure of their defence so if you can tell us that then we can help you out a bit more.

Thanks.

I think it was a 2-2-3 like you said, with the force to the right, forcing us to throw forehands. That caused a lot of turnovers too.

Sorry about the lack of information.

If they have 2 deeps then you should have someone unguarded somewhere unless your leaving two guys back there with the deeps. If you leaving two guys back with the deeps then stop that. Have the extra guy come forward and take advantage of them underneath until the deeps have to come forward and actually guard someone. Like bruce said you should have numbers underneath exploit it.

DD,

You've mentioned that you're forehands as a team are a problem so part of your training needs to include forehand practice so that a forehand force becomes less of a problem. Obviously your opposition has recognised that your throwers aren't as strong on the forehand side hence their use of a forehand force. Also, overhead throws (hammers, scoobers) are a great way of beating the cup and if a couple of your handlers have decent overhead throws it can be very useful against these kinds of defences. Once you've pulled off a decent overhead throw the cup has to bust a gut to catch up and if you can keep the disc moving forwards (without rushing) then you can easily exploit the numbers mismatch to score.
