'Between the sticks' nghĩa là giữa hai cột gôn, đứng trông gôn (thủ môn bóng đá).

Ví dụ
Simon Mignolet returned between the sticks in Liverpool's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium and fans were impressed by his performance.

The Majorca-born goalkeeper is set for an extended spell between the sticks, with Oblak expected to be out for three to four months after having shoulder surgery in London on December 14.

Given the emergence of Donnarumma, a 17-year-old who pushed Diego Lopez aside at AC Milan last season to become the seven-time European champions’ No 1 between the sticks, Buffon’s announcement comes as little surprise. He was largely expected to retire from the game after the 2018 World Cup, where Donnarumma – now in his second season in Serie A – could showcase his skills to a global audience.

'Over the sticks' có từ stick là que, cái gậy -> cụm từ này nghĩa là đua ngựa vượt rào (steeplechase, horse racing over fences).

Ví dụ
One particularly nasty somersault over the sticks at Larkhill left her strapped to a spinal board.

Gordon's had a busy time of it over the winter and a bit of success over the sticks so I think he deserves the summer off.

It’s one of those days when, even as a jumps fan, I find myself feeling rather doubtful about my chances over the sticks at Lingfield and Southwell. Perhaps it’s because they’re essentially all-weather tracks that are only playing at jump racing for the afternoon.
