Rule 36. Awarded Goals
(a) A “Goal” will be awarded to the attacking team when the opposing team has taken their goaltender off the floor and an attacking player has possession and control of the ball on a breakaway in the neutral or attacking zone without a defending player between himself and the opposing goal and:
(1) he is interfered with by an opposing player who has illegally entered the game or,
(2) a stick or any other object is thrown by a player on the defending team or,
(3) the ball carrier is fouled from behind and prevented from having a clear shot on the open goal or,
(4) any member of the defending team including the team officials, whether on the players’ bench or penalty bench, interferes by means of his body, stick or any other object with the ball or the ball carrier.
(b) A Goal will be awarded to the attacking team when the opposing team has taken their goaltender off the floor and when a shot has been taken (control no longer applies) and a defending player picks up the ball with his hand from the goal crease or intentionally falls on or covers the ball in the crease with his hand, thereby preventing an obvious and imminent goal.
