    is accepted,

    line-to-gain after four consecutive downs, or
  • to either team if a change of possession or a
    kick occurs during the down.

Scoring Touchdown
  • A team scores a touchdown when one of their
    players is in possession of the ball in their
    opponents end zone.
  • In Coed games, if a female player crosses the
    goal line with possession of the ball or throws a
    legal forward pass and a touchdown is scored by
    any Team A player, prior to a change of
    possession, it is worth 9 points.

    the opponents 20-yard line.
  • A live ball penalty bringing the ball back
    outside the 20-yard line does not count as a
    penetration since the ball was not legally dead
    inside the 20-yard line.
  • Only one penetration can be scored per
  • During playoffs, penetrations will not be counted
    to break ties. All tied games will play overtime.

  • A defensive player may take a position in the
    runners path provided the defense does not
    initiate contact.

Passing the Ball

  • The offensive team is permitted to throw one
    forward pass during a down provided
  • the pass is thrown from behind the offensive
    teams scrimmage line, and

Passing the Ball
  • To make a legal catch, a player must have
    possession of the ball and land inbounds with at
    least one foot.

    loss of down.
  • the defense, results in a 10 yard penalty and an
    automatic first down.

Downing the Runner
  • The runner is down when an opponent removes

  • during a female players run, or
  • after a change of possession.

Coed Differences
  • If a play is open, any player may complete a
    legal forward pass to any other player.
  • If a play is closed, a female player must
    either throw or catch a legal forward pass and
    the play must gain positive yards.
  • There may not be two consecutive male-to-male
