To score the highest amount of points. There are two ways of scoring. A hurling goal is like a soccer goal and a rugby goal stuck together, or like a soccer goal with posts extending well above the crossbar. Putting the ball over the crossbar is called a point and gives one point. Putting the ball into the goal is called a goal and is worth 3 points.
You get one points if you score a goal or an assist.
The goal is H-shaped with a net below the crossbar, similar to a soccer goal and rugby goalposts being stuck together. Getting the ball over the bar gives one point and getting the ball into the net gives 3 points. Scoring is mainly done by hitting the ball with the Hurling stick. The ball can be kicked but not be thrown for a score.
In Gaelic Football and Hurling, a goal is worth 3 points. This has been the case since the year 1896.
If it goes directly over the post, it is not a score. When it goes over the post, also called the upright, it is considered to be wide and so it is not a score. If it goes over the crossbar then it is a point. If it goes into the goal, then it is a goal worth 3 points
because 1 field goal is 5 points
A player can score a goal anywhere on the lacrosse field.
