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

How can you score in hurling?

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.
