First off, this is a defense/sweeper tutorial.
We've all run into this before, and it's actually very easy to deal with, as long as everyone plays their part correctly. The enemy has centered your defense, but all is not lost!
To begin, position 6 (defense) needs to bottle at the start of the round. For those of you who don't know, bottling is when the defense seals off the ends of the tails of his teammates at the beginning of the round, or "split". An example of the trap laid behind by the defense after the split is shown in Figure A.
At this point you should know that you're being centered, and begin retreating into your defense. By following your tail tightly you will constrict the enemy center, giving him only one option: turn back and try to escape the defense.
Sweepers: Yay, I didn't forget about you guys! For this to go as smoothly as possible, it is key that both sweepers are precise and quick in returning to the base when it has been established the center has occurred.
Sweeper #1 should have plenty of time to seal off both of the enemy's means of escape.
Sweeper #2 will box the defense, preventing any further damage.
The center attacker should die quite quickly, and with sweeper #2 already boxing the zone, repairing the defense should be cake.
