Scoring Terms and Definitions (SOG) Shot on Goal: A ball thrown within the frame of the goal with the crosse with the intent of scoring. (G) Goal: A goal is scored when the player puts the ball in the opposing team's net. (A) Assist: The player who passes the ball to the player who scores a goal is credited with an assist. (GB) Ground Ball: A loose ball picked up with the crosse from the ground. (FOW) Face Off Won: Number of Faceoffs Won. (FOL) Face Off Lost: Number of Faceoffs Lost. (CT) Caused Turnover: Defense gains control of the ball after contact with the ball, crosse or player. (TO) Turnover: Player gives the ball to the other team. (DC) Draw Control: Player successfully gains control of the ball after a draw. (CL) Clear: A team passes the offensive restraining line and is clearly able to get an offensive attempt.

The Score Sheet The score sheet is broken down into 4 main sections. – Header – Field Players – Penalties – Goal Keeper and Clears – Team Goals The date of the game The opponent The location (Home or away) Time Outs Goals per quarter Final Score
The Score Sheet (continued) The Header Section contains – The date of the game – The opponent – The location (Home or away) – Time Outs – Goals per quarter – Final Score
The Score Sheet (continued) The Field Player Section contains – Player Number and Name – Player Specific Statistics The Penalties Section – Kirkwood Penalties as well as opponent penalties – Player number – Time of penalty – Quarter – Duration of Penalty
The Score Sheet (continued) The Goal Keeper Section contains – Saves – Goals Allowed – Clears – Failed Clears The Goals Detail Section – Goal by quarter, scorer, assist, short handed goal, time of goal.
What is a Shot A ball propelled toward the goal by an offensive player shall be called a shot. The ball may be thrown from a stick, kicked, or otherwise physically directed to be credited as a shot. What is a (SOG) Shot on Goal One of the most common mistakes of definitions in lacrosse is that of “shot on goal.” A shot on goal is not the same thing as a shot at the goal. The latter encompasses all shots; the former encompasses only shots scoring and those having been saved by the goalie. A shot that hits the pipe is not a shot on goal unless it was deflected away from the goal mouth by the goalie. SOG count toward goalie statistics. Shots not on goal do not count toward goalie statistics.
A Goal (Goal) A goal should be credited to the player who shot the ball, scoring a goal for his own team. A goal will be credited to the last offensive player who purposely deflects the ball into the goal even though that player may not be the one who took the original shot. If a shot that is deflected is not clearly seen as deflected will be awarded to the player that took the initial shot. A team goal will be awarded if a defensive player puts the ball in his own net. The caller will call out the number of player awarded the shot.
A Save (Save) The basic rule of a save is that any time a ball is stopped or deflected with any part of the goalie’s body or stick, which if not stopped or deflected would have resulted in the ball entering the goal, a save is recorded. The statistician should focus on what would have happened to the ball if it had not been stopped or deflected by the goalie. If the shot would have scored, then award the goalie a save. If it would not have scored, do not credit a save. The tendency is to give a goalie a save every time he touches a shot; this creates inflated statistics. No matter how difficult it is to determine, the statistician should make consistent judgments on each shot that goalies stop or deflect. There are 3 articles and 9 sub articles on this rule. The caller will call out the number of player awarded the save.
An Assist (A) A player is credited with an assist when he makes, in the opinion of the statistician, a pass contributing directly to a goal. An assist cannot be credited to any player other than the one who had the ball immediately before the player credited with the goal. There are 2 articles and 15 sub articles on this rule. The caller will call out the number of player awarded the assist.
A Ground Ball (GB) Any ball not in possession of either team that comes into possession of either team should result in a ground ball once a player establishes possession and is immediately able to perform the normal functions of possession (i.e., shoot, pass, cradle), provided the ball was CONTESTED by both teams before establishing possession. There are 5 articles and 16 sub articles on this rule. The caller will call out the number of player awarded the assist.
A Faceoff (FOW or FOL) Philosophy. Since many faceoff men must depend on the statistics of faceoffs to provide an evaluation of their value, statisticians must be consistent in their assessment of faceoffs. Since the standard in faceoff stats is to award to the face off man the faceoff, whether he actually obtained possession or not, care should be taken to credit faceoffs properly. Additionally, ground balls should be credited in faceoff play (there can be more than one). Every faceoff has to end with players being credited and charged with a faceoff win and loss, unless the quarter ends before possession is established.
A Faceoff continued Credit the faceoff to the team that gains clear possession of the ball and can perform the normal functions of the possession, not based on the possession that is called by the referee. The referee’s signal of possession has no influence on the statistical determination of faceoff wins and losses. The referee’s signal frequently precedes the statistical definition of possession. For every faceoff a FOW or FOL and GB must be awarded. There are 2 articles and 9 sub articles on this rule. The caller will call out the number of player awarded the FOW or FOL and GB.
A Caused Turnover (CT) A caused turnover is credited to a player when the player’s positive, aggressive action(s) causes a turnover by the opponent. A turnover may not always warrant a caused turnover; however, caused turnovers can only be awarded to an individual player, and only one caused turnover can be awarded for a turnover. There cannot be more caused turnovers than turnovers. Any turnover charged as a team turnover cannot have a corresponding caused turnover. There are 6 articles and 13 sub articles on this rule. The caller will call out the number of player awarded the Caused Turnover.
A Turnover (TO) Turnovers occur when a player or team in possession of the ball or entitled to possession of the ball loses possession of it, in a live-ball situation or under certain dead-ball situations. If a single player is judged to be primarily responsible for the turnover, that player is charged with the turnover. If no single player can be judged to be primarily responsible for the turnover, or if the responsibility rests with anyone not a player, then the team is charged with the Turnover. There are 6 articles and 13 sub articles on this rule. The caller will call out the number of player awarded the Caused Turnover.
A Clear (CL) and Failed Clear (FCL) A clear should only be credited when the clearing team passes the offensive restraining line with the ball and is clearly able to begin an offensive attempt from such a play. Just because the ball is advanced across the offensive attack area does not automatically mean a clear should be credited if the clearing team loses possession of the ball simultaneously. A successful clear occurs the moment the offensive player enters the attack area (see Appendix B for a field diagram).
A Clear (CL) and Failed Clear (FCL) A team playing man-down should be credited with a successful clear if it meets the conditions of a successful clear, but should not be charged with an unsuccessful clear if it does not. All failed clears must have a team or individual turnover charged. There are 6 articles and 13 sub articles on this rule. Clears and Failed Clears will be tracked as a team statistic.
