The box goals arrived, so you can quit your hating on using the full size field goals.
I knew these box goals were going to be smaller than our field goals (anyone can google the dimesnsions), but having never stood next to a 4′ x 4’9″ goal, I didn’t realize how different it would be. It’s a lot different.
That being said, the players were virtually unphased by the change. They changed their style from outside shooting to inside shooting almost automatically. I was really impressed.
Game 1 final results: 14-7
Game 2 final results: 10-9
The goalies adapted to the change real well, too. They had 48329084208 saves on the night. I took at least 5 shots on goal, none of which shook the net.
Here’s the video proof that this took place. Enjoy.
