Leinster Hockey Association Circular 04/11 (05th September 2011)
At a recent board meeting, the LHA Management Committee discussed the rules governing extra time at the end of Cup Competitions in the event of a drawn game.
The board has decided that all Leinster Hockey Association Cup Competitions will be decided as follows in the event of a draw after full time:
After a 5 minute rest the umpires will toss a coin with the captains and the winner will have the choice of ends or possession of the ball to re-start the match. The extension of time will consist of two periods of 7 ½ minutes each in between which teams must change ends, without a rest period.
The extra-time shall cease, however, once a team has scored or been awarded a goal. That team will be the winner of the match.
If the score is still equal at the end of the extra-time, a penalty shoot-out competition will be played to establish the winner of the match.
These changes will be updated in the bye laws in the coming days. Please note that the above refers to all Cup competitions played by Clubs.
