29 Penalty Stroke For more serious and deliberate offences a penalty stroke can be awarded. These typically occur when: • A defender commits an intentional offence within their circle, preventing a goal being scored, or an attacker being deprived of actual or likely possession. • For an unintentional offence by a defender that prevents a goal being scored. • For persistent breaking by defence at a penalty corner. When taking a penalty stroke the ball must be flicked or pushed at the goal from the penalty spot. If the goalkeeper makes a save, the play is dead and the game is re-started with a 15 metre to the defence. As the engaged umpire you will place yourself behind the striker, while the other umpire will come down to the baseline to engage in a supporting role. VIDEO - Mouse over for controls
