When a team loses momentum, they lose mental energy causing them to focus on mistakes, turnovers, and possibly losing the game or competition.

Remember, mental energy all comes down to focus.

You can’t think that you have lost the competition until the last play of the game or time has run out. You must look for and grab changes in momentum to propel your play or your team’s play.

Even if you are down in the game, you must still have confidence in your skills and trust in yourself as well as others around you. You are only missing momentum, which can change with one play at a time. If you can stay focused on making one play at a time, stay competitive and grab momentum to fuel your performance, you have the ingredients for making a comeback.
