Saw a really nice game between Rogue and Elipsis 2 last night. I so happy about how many games are broadcast live these days!
Here’s the film of the broadcast:
One player who really impressed the hell out of me in this game was Georgia Egan-Griffiths -> #13 on Elipsis 2.
Here’s the first play that caught my attention. I love how she looks the disc into her and had then reacts immediately to the deep cutter. Her play her is an outstanding example of both great fundamentals and quick decision making:
Here Egan-Griffiths shows off some super smart handler cutting skills. After that, she sees the deep threat immediately just like last time. Shout out to Shannon Bubb for the deep help from the far side of the field.
Here Egan-Griffiths moves up the field quickly and finds a great position to help her teammates. Once again she unleashes a beautiful huck.
In this clip you’ll see her poise with the disc. I love how she moves the mark and I super duper love that backhand for the goal.
In this clip she’s getting the disc every other pass. It is so great to watch players take over a point like Egan-Griffiths does here. Also, the catch, turn with the direction of the disc, and quick through around 0:10 is a demonstration of what I think is a super important fundamental skill.
I probably could have included 4 more short clips, but this will be the last one. A really nice up the line d. Egan-Griffiths is a nightmare match up on both sides of the disc!
I love watching “new to me” players excel on the field. Hope I get a chance to see Egan-Griffiths play at World in Cincinnati this year!
