Is a goal scored when the attacking team hasnt touched?

Is a goal scored when the attacking team hasnt touched the ball within the circle yet the ball goes in the goal after touching a defender in the circle? An attacker hit the ball into the circle today, the goalie fudged it and it bounced over her foot into the goal. Twice. I thought the attacker would have to have touched it within the circle? I am new coach of young girls.

no

No, this should be given as a long corner (if the defender touched it) or a 16 if no player touched it.

Note: In the EHL this season you could score an own goal if the defender touched the ball in the circle, without ever touched by the attacker. Stil a test in here, but for normal people it's not possible.
