Hi Fran,

Worked on this in practice with all my BANTAM AAA lines for about 5 minutes each. Did a few draws on the left and right NZ dots and explained in the dressing room the fine details on how it might work and when. I allowed them to call it when they saw the right opportunity to do so. We tried it unsuccessfully a few times first, reviewed our tape to see how to perfect it and VOILA!!! We had a big team who was asleep in the first period , the center-man quietly called "shock", players got in position deceptively just before the linesman dropped the puck and it worked magically. We've used it several times since with better then 50% success rate at getting the puck to the net with a quality shot and even 2 goals.
