The scoring team will retreat to their side of centre ice until either the puck or a player (of the team that was scored against crosses centre ice).
The team that was offside will retreat outside of the blue line of the opposing team until the puck or player crosses their blue line.
Goalie controls (holds or appears to hold) the puck
The opposing team of the team that held the puck will retreat outside of the red line at the top of the circle (part of circle closest to the blue line) until the puck or player crosses that red line.
Puck sent up into mesh behind goal
The opposing team (not in that end) will retreat outside of the red line at the top of the circle (part of circle closest to the blue line) until the puck or player crosses that red line.
3) Unwritten rules: (yeah.. I know.. now they're written)
Once a player who has control of the puck has passed the defence (sometimes known as a break away), he shall be entitled to 'take the shot'. This is especially true and will be enforced if the player is over 60
An injured player crawling along the ice will necessitate a stoppage in play. (see stoppage in play above)
Any goalie playing the puck
that is shot from inside the opposite blue line and crosses the end line (icing, in other words) the goalie gets a free pass without challenge
will have the 'right of way' ... we can get more players.. not always more goalies
A late arriving player will be sent to the team in most need.
A fair representation is expected at the Prescott. (yes.. this needs repeating)
The season winning team shall be determined by selecting the games from last to 'back as many games as is necessary that the BLACK team is ahead' to have a champion for the year. If that scenario does not create a BLACK victory then the WHITE team wins.
In the unfortunate circumstance where there are less than 2 goalies, the game will be deemed a practice and therefore a tie.
Note: Any and all disputes will be settled by the EEOT review board. The board is comprised of the OWNER (Frank Smith), the COMMISSIONER (Ron Lowry) and the CONVENER (Phil Pilon). Of course, it goes without saying that it will take several glasses of wine and the odd beer to resolve even the most simple of controversies. So there will be a non-refundable deposit of $50 payable to Frank to ensure that your grievance is heard at the earliest opportunity.
