This is a useful cutting pattern for handlers when cutting or clearing, particularly when blocked by a well-positioned defender.
A handler, A, has the disc in the middle of the field, marked by D1. A cutter, B, stands 5-10m downfield, slightly towards the open side, guarded by D2.
D1 > A > D2 > B
- D1 begins by checking the disc in
- B is trying to cut towards the break side, but is being prevented from doing so by D2
- B therefore uses this to block D2 from defending the open side. See Sealing the Lane.
- Note: even if D2 isn't directly blocking B's path, if D2 is over-committed to defending the break side, then this pattern will be successful
