Hurling League quarter-finals could be decided by penalty competitions
All of Saturdays’ Allianz Hurling League Fixtures – the three Division 1 Quarter-Finals and the Play-Off between Cork and Kilkenny – must have a ‘Result on the Day’ in accordance with regulations approved by Ard Chomhairle on January 19 this year.
This means that if any of the matches are level after normal time there will be a period of extra-time of two ten-minute halves.
If a match is still level there will be a continuation of extra-time with two more five-minute halves.
It is worth noting that this additional ten minutes would be a continuation of extra-time and that only three substitutes would be allowed over the full duration of whatever extra-time is played.
If the match is still level after ‘Phase 2’ of extra-time then a penalty competition will decide the outcome.
In this scenario each team would register five penalty takers, a goal-keeper and a substitute goal-keeper (a penalty taker can also be a goalkeeper or substitute goalkeeper).
If both teams are level after the five penalties are taken then the penalty competition will proceed to a sudden death format using the same five registered players until one team has scored a goal more than the other from the same number of pucks.
