Field Stats
MinField MinutesNumber of minutes spent on the field during a game.
Goals/GGoals ScoredEach goal scored is worth one point. The player who kicks/heads (or otherwise legally plays) the ball across the opponent's goal line is awarded a goal. If the momentum from a deflected shot carries the ball across the goal line, the offensive player should be credited with a goal. An errant pass or head ball by the defense into their own goal is NOT credited to the opposing team- though it is recorded against the goal keeper as a goal allowed.
G/GGoals Per GameThe average number of goals an athlete makes per game. (Goals/Total Games Played)
AsstAssistsEach assist made is worth one point. An assist is awarded for an offensive pass leading directly to a goal. It is possible to award two assists for one goal (ie- a corner kick headed by an offensive player to a teammate who scores). An assist may also be awarded from an indirect penalty kick or a throw-in. When a shot is deflected (off the post or a defensive player) and an offensive player immediately knocks the rebound in for a goal, the offensive player who took the first shot should be awarded an assist.
Shots/ShtsShots TakenA shot is an attempt that is taken with the intent of scoring and is directed toward the goal. A cross or crossing pass is not a shot. A goalkeeper who intercepts a cross is not credited with a save. Exception: A cross that the goalkeeper stops that otherwise would have entered the goal is considered a shot, and the goalkeeper is credited with a save.
SOGShots on GoalA shot on goal is a shot that is on net. The results of a shot on goal must be either a save by the goalkeeper or defending team or a goal by the attacking team. A shot that hits the post or crossbar without being deflected by a goalkeeper or defender and does not cross the goal line is not a shot on goal.
StlsStealsSteals are given when a player forces an opponent turnover and gains possession of the ball. Receiving an errant pass is not a steal.
