Single focus or multi-focus for sport

Hi

I'm trying to take sports pictures - field hockey where people are moving quickly and are often in groups. What is the best AF? Single point or multi-focus?

Reading the forum, many people say single point as you can then focus on your target, which makes sense. However, with hockey, it can be so fast moving that I do not have the luxury of time to do this, so in practice I have been pointing my camera towards the action and then taking pot luck with burst mode using multi-point. This has had reasonable success but the desired subject is often out of focus.

Can anyone advise?
