A Goal

Scored when the whole ball has passed over the goal line between the goal posts and under the cross bars provided it has not been thrown, carried, or intentionally propelled by hand or arm of a player from the attacking side.

Tie Game

In case of a tie at the end of regulation, one ten-minute overtime period will be played.  If the score is still tied after this period, the game will remain a tie.  This is a sudden death overtime, so the first goal wins the game.

Fouls

  • Non-flagrant - Tripping, pushing, tackling, charging and holding, swearing or arguing with an official’s decision will result in a one (1) minute penalty for the person who commits the foul.  The only exception is in the case of the goalie.  He will not serve the penalty but another member of the team on the court will.  Penalties will be served in the team’s bench area.
  • Change of Possession - Catching or touching the ball deliberately with hands or arms by anyone other than the goalie is a change of possession.  A free kick results.  Area behind south goal will be out of bounds.
  • Flagrant - Intentional tripping, kicking, tackling, charging, and holding will be a five (5) minute penalty.
  • All penalties, with the exception of a flagrant foul, the penalized player can leave the penalty box if:
  1. A goal is scored.
  2. When his/her one (1) minute is up.

On a flagrant foul the player must serve the full five (5) minutes and his team must play short-handed the whole time regardless if a goal or goals are scored.
