I have had a quick look on the search engine and can't find this exact question but apologies if it has been discussed before. I had an incident on Saturday where there was a free hit awarded on the edge of the circle after a mistake by the defending team on a hit out. Due to the situation the attacking team had a 3 on 1 (plus goalkeeper) advantage and took a quick free hit from the correct spot, the defender was about three metre away and stretched (in other words a deliberate motion) to stop the ball reaching the attackers and prevent a definite 2 on 1 situation with the goalkeeper. All the latter part of the incident happened in the circle. Now the question is, in this situation would you award a Penalty Stroke or a Penalty Corner? This polarised views after the match with both teams split about 50/50 over what the decision should be. What would you give and almost as important how would you rationalise your decision to the team who were not happy with what you gave?
