If it is deliberately hit over the backline by a defender, a penalty corner should be awarded. This does not include a goalkeeper making a save or clearing the ball to prevent a goal. If it is accidental or is clearly an attempt to hit the ball to the sideline, it will be a long corner.

What happens if the ball goes over the backline and a defender touched it last?

It depends on what sport you are playing. Some such as hockey and football award a corner kick/hit; other sports award the ball to the defense regardless - others still give the ball to the offense a short distance from the backline.


In hockey what happens if the ball goes over the backline?

If the ball goes over the backline, four things may be done to restart play. If the ball was last played by an attacker, then the defense receive a free hit up to 14.63 metres (16 yards) out from the backline and in line with where the ball left the field, parallel with the sidelines. If the ball was accidentally played by a defender (e.g. a deflection or uncontrolled intercept), a free hit is taken by the attackers on the sideline nearest to where the ball went out, 5 metres from the backline. If the ball was intentionaly played over the backline by a defender (e.g. to relieve the pressure from the defense), play is restarted by a penalty corner. Finally, if the ball was played by an attacker at all in the circle, did not leave the circle hence, and crossed wholly over the backline between the goalposts and under the crossbar, a goal is awarded to the attacking team. The free hit is taken by the defense at that time from the halfway point, with every player in their defensive half.


In hockey What happens if the ball is played over the backline by an attacker?

The defense gets a 16-yard/15 metre hit. This is a free hit taken in line with where the ball went out, up to 15 metres from the backline (level with the top of the circle).


What is a 16 yard hit in field hockey?

A 16 yard hit is a type of free hit, awarded to the defense, when the ball goes wholly over the backline (but a goal is not awarded) and the attacking team was the last to touch it in any way. It is taken in line with where the ball crossed the backline, up to 14.63 metres from the backline.

What are the rules for a long corner?

When it is taken: a long corner is awarded if a defender was the last player to play the ball before it wholly crossed the backline (but not the goalline) and did not play it so deliberately. This includes a goalkeeper who played the ball over the backline as part of a goalsaving action. How it is taken: the ball is placed 5 metres from the backline on the sideline nearest where the ball went out. All rules for a free hit apply (opponents must be 5 metres from the ball, ball must travel 1 metre before being played by a teammate, ball cannot be played twice - this does not include the new autopass rule).

When is a penalty corner awarded in field hockey?

A penalty (short) corner is awarded for: * An accidental offence by a defender within the circle they are defending, which does not prevent the probable scoring of a goal; * A deliberate offence by a defender outside the circle they are defending but within the 23 metre area, against a player with possession of/opportunity to play the ball; * A deliberate offense by a defender within the circle they are defending, against a player who does not have possession of/opportunity to play the ball. * Deliberately playing the ball over the backline by a defender. A penalty (short) corner is reawarded when: * A player or players breaks the line early on a previous penalty (short) corner; * A penalty corner has not finished and a bully would otherwise have been awarded.


In hockey what happens when the ball is hit over by an attacker?

Over what? If it is hit over the sideline the other team gets a free hit from where the ball went out. If it is hit over the backline the defense receives a free hit inside the field. if it is hit over a player, the other team gets a free hit for dangerous play.


What does corner mean in a game of football?

When the ball goes out of play over the backline and was last touched by a defender, the attacking team receives a 'corner kick', where the ball is placed within a yard of the corner post and then taken as a free kick. 'Corner' is short for 'corner kick'.
