From the game manual: “ Row - Three (3) Goals that make up a straight line. There are a total of eight (8) Rows including two (2) Alliance Home Rows.”- A row is basically a straight line of goals. Rows can be diagonal/vertical/horizontal, but must be straight.
Also from the game manual: “Connected Row – A Row where all three (3) Goals in the Row are Owned by the same Alliance.”- A connected row is basically three goals in a straight line (a row) with all of the goals owned by only one alliance.
Again, from the game manual: “Owned - A Goal status. A Goal is considered Owned by an Alliance if its colored Ball is the vertically highest Scored Ball in that Goal.”- Basically you only need one ball in a goal to own it, however, it needs to be the highest in that goal and must be scored.
The game manual, yet again: “ Teams receive points for any blue Balls that are removed from their starting positions in Goals. These points are equal to how many points would have been “de-scored” from the blue Alliance by removing that Ball.”- Use this to answer your question if you can; I am confused, do you mean connected row or just row?
