If it was your first, no sweat, just do better next time.

If not your first, no sweat, everybody has bad days.

Just do better next time

Even though "shooting lousy" disappoints us, I think if it as "I need to get out and shoot more" which is a fun and good thing, isn't it? Keep at it. You will get better.

One suggestion is to not hang on the barricades so much.
Move back or out a little. Shooting while touching the barricade is not how you practice, so why do that during a match?
A little change can make a big difference.

If you had a great time, then you obviously didn't shoot lousily. Fun is more important than winning.
