Virginia’s 2-2-2 from X played an extensive role in their 2019 National Championship run. Virginia used it to score: the game-winning goal in overtime vs Syracuse in the regular season, the game-winning goal in overtime vs Maryland in the quarterfinals, the game-tying and game-winning goals vs Duke in the Semi-Finals, and 5 of 13 goals in the National Championship vs Yale.
The keys to Virginia’s 2-2-2 from X are:
Simplicity – It’s simple enough to allow players to alternate between positions.
Easy Reads – Defensive decisions create a cascade of reads that are easy to see and teach.
Spacing – The spacing makes defensive decisions difficult and allows players to freelance easily if the prescribed looks aren’t there.
