Best Answer

Hitting the sliotar between the tall posts (similar to Rugby posts) is a "point" worth one point. Hitting the sliotar into the net (similar to a soccer net) is a "goal" worth three points. The scoring in hurling is displayed like this:

Team A 3-8 Team B 0-16

The first number represents goals (three points) and the second number represents points (one point)

In the above example, Team A won scoring 17 points against Team B which scored 16 points.
