The turning point of the game was when down 1-4 I had a quick conversation with Cuneyt and to my surprise and his credit he listened to my advice to change his game to be more team oriented and not to try and do everything by himself. He started spraying quick passes to open teammates instead of always trying to dribble past multiple defenders and shooting. As a result we improved tremendously, keeping possession very well, controlling the rest of the game, going on a 7-2 run which swung the final score 8-6 in our favor.
