You may be comparing the goalie kick of soccer. The equivalent in Field Hockey would be the '16-yard hit'; this is not taken by the goalie but by a defender. There are also some major differences; the ball is placed level with the top of the circle, in line with where it went out, and is played the same way as a free hit would be.
