Arendal – PAUC Handball 27:27 (17:15)

match analysis

22/09/2021

Why is it important to know all the information during the match?
Why is keeping individual statistics not good enough to make good decisions during a game?
Arendal coach Andre Marius Jorgensen prepared the attack well and the team scored 17 goals from 30 possessions in the first half – 57%, but in the second half the situation changed significantly and they scored 10 goals from 29 possessions – 37%.
A key element for this change was the extremely poor performance of 3 of the 4 9m players:
Matic 0/2
Lindstrom 0/1
Soendena 0/3
with the average efficiency of the left-back Fiala 4/8.

At first glance if 3 out of 4 back players play that way, the situation seems to have no solution.
However, if we look a little further from the individual shot, we see that the combination of outside players Fiala – Matić – Lindstrom with 50% was much more efficient than 37%.


And when we are able to see the connection between the pivot and the different back players combination then the difference becomes significant.

When they played Fiala – Matić – Lindstrom with pivot Borma, the efficiency was high 71% – 5/7.


The lesson of this match is that some situations are really hopeless, but sometimes the solution is hidden somewhere and we just need to dig deep enough.
Yesterday, for the solution, it was necessary to look beyond the individual statistics of key players and beyond combinations of the back players, because the team had 0/4 when Lorentzen played with Fiala – Matić – Lindstrom.
Now it is not possible to know, but maybe Arendal would have won yesterday if Fiala – Matić – Lindstrom and pivot Borm had played more than 7 attacks together.
