If a defensive foul is committed when the offensive team is in an imminent scoring position, the referee may award a penalty goal in lieu of a one‐minute penalty. To indicate this, he will blow his whistle and signal the foul. The game clock will stop. The referee will then signal a goal and clearly state “penalty goal”. The offensive team will be awarded one point and the ball will be given to the defensive team to in‐bound on the goal line. If a player is serving a penalty when a penalty goal is awarded to the opposing team, he is not released from the penalty box.
