Poached Throwing

Ulti tonight was fun. I felt like running for some reason, and run I did. The first few points I stayed away from being a handler so I could do some cuts. When time came for defense though I was playing a little lazy. Once I poached my check to help out a teammate and got burned. Another point I wasn’t on top of my check as much as I should have been. Later in the game I was on the wrong side of my check (I was shallow and should have been deep). I was watching him to see what he was going to do. I saw him point to the open side of the field, and totally fell for the fake. He deeked to the open side then doubled back after I committed. Aargh.

Then I redeemed myself. I had a wicked point where I was all over the place making plays. I was a handler and was throwing well, but there were a lot of turnovers. On defense I was blocking, running down the disk, and generally causing mayhem for the other team. I wanted that point bad an din the end we didn’t get it 🙁 I was disappointed, but a few people commented on how well I played.

We lost the game 13-4 and still played an extra point which we won. All in all I had a great time tonight. Now I am cooling off then will have a shower before bed.
