CDNL Scorers Guide

Start of Game
TEAM A has won the toss and takes the first centre pass, pencil an E (evens) in the first box below their name on the score card.

Team A will always have this pass during the first quarter when the Total of goals scored is an even number.

TEAM B will be O (odds). Pencil the “O” in the box underneath their name on the scorecard. After the first goal, Team B has the next centre pass, e.g., score is 1 / 0 (1+0) = odds. Team B will always have this pass during the first quarter, when the Total of goals scored is an odd number.
• 0-0 (evens) - first centre pass Team A
• 1-0 (odds) - next centre pass Team B
• 2-0 (evens) - next centre pass Team A
• 2-1 (odds) – next centre pass Team B
• etc

Re-Starting After ¼, ½ and ¾ Time
There are two possibilities - if the score is say 10-8

1. If a goal was scored prior to the end of the quarter and the next centre pass had not been thrown -
In this case the centre pass in the second half will remain the same, i.e. Team A on `evens' and Team B on `odds'. In this example the score 10-8 = 18 = evens
First pass in next quarter is Team A. Team A remain `evens', Team B on `odds'


2. If the ball is in play when the whistle goes to end the quarter -
In this case change over the ‘odds’ and ‘evens' – so write an O in the square box under Team A (for odds), and an E under Team B (for evens). In this example the score = 10-8 = 18= evens. As Team B is now “evens” they have the next Centre Pass.

Odd Bit! - If at a Centre Pass the ball is still in the Centre's hands when the Umpire’s whistle is blown to signal the end of a quarter or half and provided no infringement by that team has been penalised, that team will take the Centre Pass after the interval.
