This is an open-book immediate-feedback quiz designed to help teach the basics of recording player statistics at HRLax Boys HS games. The most important resource is the current NCAA Statisticians Manual, please open it, read it, and print a copy to take with you to games for reference. Additional information sheets and a training briefing is available on the Time/Score/Stats page at HRLax. Com.

• 1.

### Who provides statisticians for the game?  (Select all that apply)

• A.

Home Team

• B.

Visiting Team

• C.

Officials

• D.

League

A. Home Team
B. Visiting Team
Explanation
The Home Team and Visiting Team may each provide statisticians to track their own team's stats and assist when needed at the table.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### When are each team’s individual player stats required to be entered on the league website?

• A.

Within 24 hours

• B.

Within 48 hours

• C.

Within 72 hours

• D.

Not an HRLax League requirement

D. Not an HRLax League requirement
Explanation
Scores must be entered within 24 hours, but keeping and reporting individual player stats, while highly encouraged, is not an HRLax League requirement.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### What is the penalty if a team falsifies player stats?

• A.

Team forfeits the season

• B.

Team is ineligible for post-season awards and individual player stats for season are voided

• C.

No penalty

B. Team is ineligible for post-season awards and individual player stats for season are voided
Explanation
Not entering player stats puts the player at a disadvantage for post-season awards selection, but falsifying a players stats is dishonest and may put him at an advantage. So the League-imposed penalty for falsifying stats is all individual player stats are voided and the team is ineligible for post-season awards.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### During the game, goals, assists (if applicable), penalties, time outs, and game played are entered in the scorebook for each team by the scorekeeper. Which of the following are stats commonly kept by statisticians?  (Select all that apply)

• A.

Ground Balls

• B.

Shots

• C.

Number of spectators

• D.

Turnovers and Caused Turnovers

• E.

Goalie Saves

• F.

Faceoffs taken and won

A. Ground Balls
B. Shots
D. Turnovers and Caused Turnovers
E. Goalie Saves
F. Faceoffs taken and won
Explanation
The number of spectators is not a player or team statistic kept by the statisticians. Ground Balls, Shots, Turnovers, Caused Turnovers, Goalie Saves, Faceoffs Taken and Won, are all individual player statistics defined in the NCAA Statisticians manual. Games Played, Goals, and Assists are recorded by the scorekeeper in the official scorebook. Clears and Extra-Man Offense and Defense are team stats that can also be recorded.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### If a player scores a goal on his own goal, it is recorded for the team earning the point, how is it credited?

• A.

Record it with In-Home playerâ€™s jersey number

• B.

Record it with OG as the scorer

• C.

Credit it to highest scoring playerâ€™s jersey number of team earning the goal

• D.

Credit it to the player scoring with an asterisk denoting other team

B. Record it with OG as the scorer
Explanation
If a player puts the ball into the goal he is defending, the goal is recorded as a team goal for the other team. It does not get attributed to an individual player, but instead "OG" fr Own Goal is entered for the player number. (some may write TG for Team Goal, but because the G can easily look like a 6 we recommend using OG - the T can look like a 1 and be mistaken for player #16, but 06 is not a legal jersey number)

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Team penalties get charged against the In-Home player’s personal statistics.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The in-home serves the team penalties and penalties on coaches, but they do not get recorded on his personal player statistics.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### A player is credited with an assist when he makes, in the opinion of the statistician, a pass contributing directly to a goal.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Assists are the most subjective of stats. The key point on awarding an assist is that it needs to appear as part of the play or be a pass that is direct reason a goal occurred. Here is the full published philosophy on awarding assists in men's lacrosse: An assist is not necessarily credited to a player who makes a pass before a goal. There should be conscious effort on the part of the passer to find an open player for a shot or to help a player work free for a shot. There should be no particular time frame for an assist (although the pass and shot should appear to be part of the same play) nor should there be any rigid distance factor in the play (the player scoring the goal could take one step, several steps, or even run a number of yards with the ball and still have the passer credited with an assist). An assist should not be credited on a play when the goal scorer dodges a defensive player after receiving the pass before shooting unless, in the opinion of the statistician, it was the pass itself and not the dodge that led directly to the shot.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### An Assist can be credited to more than one player if the passes appear to be, in the opinion of the statistician, part of choreographed scoring play.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
There can only be one assist awarded per goal. Many goals are unassisted, and none have two assists.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Player A1 passes the ball to teammate A2 who has a one-on-one play with the goalie. A2 fakes the goalie several times, shoots and scores. You should credit A1 with an assist.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
True, because there is supposed to be a goalie in the crease and sometimes a fake will be necessary to score.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### A1 passes the ball to A2 who encounters a one-on-one with a defender and an untended cage. A2 fakes the defender, shoots and scores. You should credit A1 with an assist.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
False, Do not credit an assist on the play because A2 had to fake a defender who was not the goalie.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Player A1 passes to teammate A2 cutting across the crease. A2 is closely guarded but shoots an over-the-shoulder or behind-the-back shot that scores a goal. You should credit A1 with an assist.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
True, because in spite of there being a considerable move to score, the pass accorded A2 with an advantage that he did not previously have and because the shot was an immediate result of a pass with no essential fake to get free.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Player A1’s pass to teammate A2 is deflected and A3 catches the ball, shoots and scores. You should credit an assist to A1.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
False, because intent matters, and the pass was not intended to assist A3 with scoring a goal.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Player A1 picks up a loose ball in front of his crease, runs 70 yards down the field and makes a pass to teammate A2, who makes one dodge, shoots and scores. You should credit A1 with an assist.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
In this case it would be the pass itself, not the dodge that would have led directly the shot. This is a good example of the subjectivity involved in awarding assists. If it was an incidental "step-around-the-defenseman" dodge, then it was the pass more than the dodge that led to the goal. If the dodge came because, after receiving the pass, the shooter was held up or trapped and was required to fake and dodge to escape for an open shot, then it would have been the dodge, not the pass that led to the shot, so there would be no assist awarded..

Rate this question:

• 14.

### A faceoff (FO) win is credited when one team has clear possession.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A faceoff win is determined by clear possession of the ball, not by the subsequent offensive opportunity. Most often it is the team that has the ball when the referee signals possession, though sometimes statistical possession occurs before or after the referee's call.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### The two players who participate in the faceoff are the only players who can be credited and charged with a faceoff win and loss.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The standard in faceoff stats is to award to the faceoff man the faceoff , whether he actually obtained possession or not. A teammate may have established possession but it is the faceoff man who is credited with the win. The other faceoff man is charged with the loss.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### A ground ball could be awarded even if no opposing player is within considerable distance of the player when he gets possession of the ball.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
It must be contested, but sometimes an opposing player isn't close. An example is an interception. An interceptions are credited as a ground ball but the nearest player could be many yards away. Another way to think of a ground ball is a gained ball: the team gains possession of a contested ball during live play.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### When is a ground ball (GB) credited during a FO?

• A.

GB is awarded to a player who gains possession of ball during live-ball play even if the player is uncontested.

• B.

GB is credited to player who is awarded possession by official during dead ball because there was a penalty on FO.

• C.

GB is awarded to player who did the FO when his team wins possession.

A. GB is awarded to a player who gains possession of ball during live-ball play even if the player is uncontested.
Explanation
In a faceoff situation, a ground ball should be credited to the player who gains clear possession regardless of whether or not the player gaining possession is being contested at that time. Example would be when the ball is shot loose from the faceoff guys and it rolls toward a player who simply picks it up. Even though the player was uncontested, in the faceoff, the ball is, by definition, contested.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### A GB should be awarded to a goalie who saves a shot and on the subsequent loose contested ball, gains possession of the ball.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The goalie in this case should be credited with a ground ball because it was contested. The goalie would be credited with a save and a ground ball. However, if the ball had not been contested after a clocked shot, it would not be credited as a ground ball.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### If a game is interrupted by weather or other events beyond the control of responsible authorities: (Select all that apply)

• A.

If fewer than three quarters have been played, the game shall resume at the point of interruption

• B.

The game will be counted as a forfeit for both teams

• C.

If three quarters have been played and one team is ahead, the game and score will count as an official game

• D.

If three quarters have been played and the game is tied the game shall resume at the point of interruption

A. If fewer than three quarters have been played, the game shall resume at the point of interruption
C. If three quarters have been played and one team is ahead, the game and score will count as an official game
D. If three quarters have been played and the game is tied the game shall resume at the point of interruption
Explanation
If the game is tied or still in the first three quarters, then the game will be picked up where it left off when it is rescheduled. All stats will be continued when the game continues.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### To award a Ground Ball (GB): Any ball not in possession of either team that comes into possession of either team should result in a ground ball if the following conditions apply: (Select all that apply)

• A.

The ball was contested by both teams before establishing possession

• B.

The player is immediately able to perform the normal functions of possession (i.e., shoot, pass, cradle)

• C.

A player drops a pass and picks it back up

A. The ball was contested by both teams before establishing possession
B. The player is immediately able to perform the normal functions of possession (i.e., shoot, pass, cradle)
Explanation
The ball must be contested: If it is just one the ground and player runs by and picks it up, it is not credited as a ground ball. The player must have real possession of the ball, meaning he can cradle, pass or shoot. If a player just drops the ball and then picks it up, it is not credited as a ground ball even if it was contested when he picked it up.

Rate this question:

• 21.

### A GB should be credited to an offensive or defensive player who gains possession of the ball and prevents it from going out of bounds even if the play was not being contested.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
True, because if he hadn't picked it up it would have gone out of bounds. However, if the same uncontested rolling ball would not have gone out of bounds then it would not be credited as a ground ball. " A loose ball that is not contested and would not reach the midline or go out of bounds should not result in a ground ball."

Rate this question:

• 22.

### A Caused Turnover (CT) is credited to a player when the player’s positive, aggressive actions cause a turnover by the opponent. Must result in change of possession to defender’s team.

• A.

### What is awarded to the player who makes an interception?

• A.

CT (Caused Turnover)

• B.

CT and GB (caused Turnover and Ground Ball)

• C.

GB (Ground Ball)

B. CT and GB (caused Turnover and Ground Ball)
Explanation
An interception is credited as both a ground ball (think "gained ball" ) and a caused turnover.

Rate this question:

• 24.

### A turnover (TO) is credited when a player or team in possession of the ball or entitled to possession of the ball loses possession of it, in a live-ball situation or under certain dead-ball situations.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation

Rate this question:

• 25.

### Which statement is correct regarding TOs and CTs?

• A.

There can be more CTs than TOs

• B.

There can be more TOs than CTs.

• C.

CTs and TOs should be the same number.

B. There can be more TOs than CTs.
Explanation
All caused turnovers (CT) result in a turnover (TO), but not all turnovers are caused by another player. So there are usually more TO than CTs and never more TOs than CTs.

Rate this question:

• 26.

### When do you credit a clear?

• A.

Immediately upon the clearing team crossing the mid-line

• B.

When the official signals the successful clear

• C.

When the clearing team has maintained possession while moving the ball from behind their defensive restraining line down the field to over their offensive restraining line.

C. When the clearing team has maintained possession while moving the ball from behind their defensive restraining line down the field to over their offensive restraining line.
Explanation
A clear is when the team is able to move the ball from their defensive zone to over the offensive restraining line. When a team gains possession of the ball in their defensive end, they have 20 seconds to get it over the center line and then 10 more seconds to get it over the offensive restraining line. If they fail to do so, then a team or individual turnover is charged.

Rate this question:

• 27.

### A goal is recorded as both a shot and a goal

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
True. If a player is credited with a goal, he took a shot. It is important to record every shot taken, including the shots that result in a goal.
