Scoring in Floor Goals

Could you please clarify the rules for scoring in the floor goals. We have a tournament on Saturday & people have different interpretations of the rules. Is it that:

1. the buckys have to be completely within the perpendicular plane extending from the outside edge of the black line
2. the buckys have to touch the floor goals including the black line but can hang over the perpendicular plane extending from the outside edge of the black line
3. the buckys just have to break the plane of the the black line surrounding the floor goal (extending within the goal but still outside of the goal) to be considered scored

Thank you.

Also if the ring is in the corner with a small bucky ball on it, does it count as 5 + 1 points or just 5 points?

Let’s take a look at the definition of Scored and Floor Goal.

Scored – A Scoring Object is Scored in a Goal if it is within the three-dimensional space defined by the outer edges of the Goal, projected upwards and infinitely perpendicular to the playing field.

Floor Goal – One of the four 6” square shaped goals located in the corners of the field, into which teams place Balls. The black lines surrounding the goal mark the outer edges of the goal.

Thus, the BuckyBalls just need to break the plane of the black lines to be considered Scored in the Floor Goal.

This would only count for 5 points.
