Turkey v. Slovenia 2011 - Delaying High on Offensive Rush

Slovenia is IIHF Group 3 Team, in 2010 they were in group two. We did not want our club to delay high in 2010 or 2011. We were playing Olympic teams, IIHF Group I and II clubs. Turkey was a group five team. We did not have enough talent or experience to delay high. Most of the woman had only just started playing hockey 2 years ago. 

Tactics:  Delay High

Defensive Tactics:

  •  Slovenia Defense reads the delay and intercepts the puck

Tactical Mistakes Turkey:

  • Turkey failed to take the easy shot
  • Turkey failed to have anyone drive to the net
  • Turkey fails to have offensive triangle - We have three players in straight line.
