In a game, the goalie can accidentally score on his or her own goal. If they try to stop a shot and it bounces off of them and goes fully past the goal line, then it does count as a goal for the opposing team. The goalie is also allowed to leave the crease and in some rare cases can actually go up and score in the other team's goalie.
The player who stands in the crease of the goal and blocks the lacrosse ball from being scored into the goal.
The goalie crease is the circle around the goal that I believe has a diameter of 9 feet for men and 8.5 feet for women. In men's lacrosse a goalie and the defenders of that same team can go in the crease and in women's only the goalie is allowed inside the crease. In women's if a defender steps into the crease then the game is stopped and a girl from the other team is given an 8 meter arch penalty shot, if someone on the offense of the other team steps into the goal the ball is given to the goalie and everyone must be a certain distance away to allow the goalie to clear the ball. Also with women's if an offensive player that is shooting the ball steps into the crease then the goal is not counted and the ball is given to the goalie.
If you've ever seen college lacrosse there's a circle around the goal that's the crease
The goal line
Yes but if you do before its a crease violation **** Say you dive into the crease, as long as the ball is in the net before you touch the ground, then you get the goal. Its super risky though, because this can vary from ref to ref and if you miss/ hit the goalie with the ball then you get a penalty
The goal circle, or "crease" allows attackers to have an advantage to see the field or make a "roll." A player behind the goal can make feeds to offensive cutters, and if the opportunity is there, to run around the perimeter of the circle and score a goal. It is a good way to shake defenders and to use your teammates to set picks and make cuts so you can score a goal. It's probably one of my favorite parts about attacking in the sport.
when the shot is stopped by the goalie or goes in
In lacrosse you score one point by shooting the ball into the goal. Although the stick or body cannot cross the line of the crease, or the goal is taken away. At the professional level (Major League Lacrosse only) the rules differ to include a two-point goal line 16 yards (15 m) from each goal.
Yes, as long as they don't step in the crease as they kick it.
An assist is when you pass the bal to the person to scores the goal.
