The video below is a summary of the 1st 50 women's goals at this years Hockey World Cup.
Of particular interest in this video is the volume of goals that are scored either through a deflection or rebound by a player closer in than the Penalty Spot. It is also very noticeable that for almost all goals scored there is an attacker player 1 if not both posts.
This is a vital way of scoring goals even up to elite level and if the team reaches a point where there is always a player in those places you are largely increasing the chance of a goal coming from a strike. This doesn't even take into account an intentional pass to the back post.
