SECTION 7 — FOULS WHICH OCCUR ON THE LAST PLAY OF A QUARTER
If in any period time expires during a play in which a foul occurs the non-offending team may:
- accept the penalty, in which case the team entitled to possession shall be required to put the ball into play or,
- decline the penalty and accept the play as it terminated to end the period or,
- elect to have the penalty applied on the first play of the following period, if the foul was a Major Foul.
NOTE: For the purpose of this rule, an Offside Pass shall not be considered to be a foul. Should the play be terminated by an official's whistle prior to the ball being put into play, the penalty shall be applied and the period extended for another play.
