13 Scoring a Goal To score a goal, the ball must touch an attacker's stick before going in the goal and the ball must be hit from within the circle. The other way a goal can be scored is to touch any part of a defender’s stick or body when they are inside the circle (New rule from January 2013). The whole ball must go across the goal line. In hockey the line is considered part of the circle. playmedia Watch video below VIDEO - Mouse over for controls
