Best Answer

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.
