Stats especially assists

Post by old_horse » Sun Sep 30, 2018 1:34 pm

I saw a thread about saves but when you see a team with over 80 goals with the exact same number of assists I wonder if the scorer knows what an assist is. My question is: who keeps your stats?

Agree 100%. If a kid takes 7 touches and 2 moves around defenders there shouldn't be an assist. I question some stats from last year also

Our coaches keep the stats. Just as a general rule, if you have 75% assist rate or higher, you probably don’t fully understand what an assist would be. If a team has between 50-75%, it’s probably pretty accurate (in my opinion)

SECTION 5—ASSISTS
Article 1. An assist is awarded for a pass leading directly to a goal. Not more than two assists may be credited on any one scoring play. Each assist shall count one point in the player’s statistical record.
(1) If a scoring play consists of two consecutive passes with- out a defender gaining control of the ball, two assists may be awarded, provided the second player does not have to elude a defender to make the final pass. Both passes must have a direct influence on the outcome of a goal scored. If the second player needs to elude a de- fender before passing to the goal-scorer, credit only that assist.
A.R. 6. Adams passes the ball to Aaron, who dribbles past Brown. Aaron’s forward movement is being contested by Brown before Aaron passes the ball to Abell, who heads the ball into the net. RULING: Only Aaron is awarded an assist. Since Aaron had to free himself from the defender to get the ball to Abell, only one assist is given even though the defender never touched the ball.
A.R. 7. Adams sends a corner kick into the goal area that is headed by Abreu straight to Aristotle, who scores. RULING: Credit assists to Adams and Abreu. Both touches, by Adams and Abreu, led directly to the goal.
(2) No assist is awarded when a player gains control from the defensive team and scores.
(3) No assist is awarded on a penalty-kick goal.
A.R. 8. Allen receives a pass from Anderson and then is tripped in the penalty box, and Team A is awarded a pen- alty kick. Adams converts the penalty kick. RULING: Credit
Adams with a goal, but do not credit Anderson with an as- sist. No assist can be given on a penalty kick.
(4) No assist is awarded on an “own goal.”
(5) A corner kick, throw-in or free kick leading to a goal each counts as a pass in awarding assists.
(6) A player cannot receive credit for an assist on a goal that the player also scores.
(7) A player is not credited with an assist if that player’s pos- session is terminated by an opposing defender’s tackle.
A.R. 9. Adams dribbles down the middle. Bartlett’s slide tackle knocks the ball toward Aristotle, who then scores. RULING: No assist is given. It was not Adams’ intent to pass the ball, nor to score. Rather, the ball was simply knocked away by the defender.
(8) If an attacking player’s shot hits a post or crossbar and bounces back into the field of play and, before a defend- er can touch the ball, another attacker shoots the ball into the goal, credit the player whose shot hit the post or crossbar with an assist.
(9) If an attacking player shoots and the goalkeeper or de- fender blocks the shot but cannot control the ball, and a second attacking player immediately knocks the re- bound in for a goal, credit the player who took the first shot with an assist.
A.R. 10. Adams passes the ball to Abreu, who dribbles into the corner and crosses the ball to Aristotle, who heads the ball toward the net. The ball bounces off Brown, team B’s keeper, to Adams, who puts it into the net. RULING: Credit only Aristotle with the assist. Once a shot deflects off the keeper (or defender), the pass by Abreu to Aristotle no longer has a direct impact on the goal being scored.
(10)If an attacking player shoots and the goalkeeper or de- fender blocks the shot but cannot control the ball, and the same attacking player immediately knocks the re- bound in for a goal, no assist is credited.
A.R. 11. Abreu crosses the ball to Aristotle, who heads the ball toward the net. The ball bounces off Brown, team B’s keeper, back to Aristotle, who puts it into the net. RUL- ING: No assist is credited. As in A.R. 9, once a shot deflects off the keeper (or defender), the pass by Abreu to Aristotle no longer has a direct impact on the goal being scored.
