17,2,2 defensive receiving fouls

  • April 18, 2017 at 12:47 pm #1434

    There is a 17,2,2 : the foul happens in the end zone and is uncontested. It is clear that the offensive player could have catch the disc. It this a goal or should the offensive player take possession in the goal line?

    Thank you.

    If an uncontested defensive receiving foul happens in the endzone, then the thrower gets possession where the foul occurred. The disc is then checked in, at which point all players may move anywhere. Before making a pass, the thrower must establish a pivot at the nearest point on the goal line.

    It is only awarded as a goal if an uncontested strip occurs in the endzone (17.5.2).
