Hi, this is Robert Stewart with hill13.com.
And when it comes to team strategy you always want to plan for success. But you should also
plan for catastrophic failure. The next thing we’re going to talk about is what to do when
it all goes wrong. And that is the concept of lose, lose and what to do when you’re taking
fire and have players being eliminated once you’ve made first contact. We look at the
board, we can see that these two five man teams are fairly well matched in terms of
the way they’re coming across the field. We have a pretty large wedge formation on both
accounts. Once you’ve made contact, if it seems evenly matched, and you begin to have
players eliminated, you can’t stand there and just take the attrition. At that point
what you want to do is have the front end of your wedge begin to fall back into the
wedge formation itself. Ideally, if you can upon your withdrawal from the situation, invert
your wedge. That is the best thing you could possible have happen. So once the wedge has
begun to take fire from the front, if at all possible, the outside men should not begin
firing; they should begin moving up and digging in and finding outside flanking positions
that will allow them to support their team members on the inside of the inverted wedge.
So once you have brought the players back in, you’ve built a funnel in to which you
can let the other force throw themselves at and hopefully eliminate more of them than
they eliminate of you.
