When the ball is knocked wide and out of bounds of the pitch the opposing team can bring the ball back into play by kicking it in from the hands. If they are in range of the goals they can “take a point”. Its NEVER easy, due to the distance and the static nature of a free and the player cannot step over the sideline while taking the kick.
This is a Sideline kick…and a score!
