penalty hit

penalty hit

Awarded at an appropriate distance by the umpire, according to the gravity of an offense. Failure to carry out penalty hits corrrectly may result in: a penalty goal, allowing members of the team that did not commit the fault to position themselves where they wish, retaking the hit, unless a goal was scored or awarded. Unnecessary delay in taking a free hit may result in the umpire bowling the ball from the same spot.
