Up the hierarchy to:

(High) Lick/(Low) Lick Search Source: SND
QUOT: When the ball, or scuddie, as it used to be named, got into a ditch or other place where a free stroke could not be given, anyone was at liberty to cry out “Hiperell”. If the chance of getting a fair lick was hopeless, the one who cried out took up the ball, and asked if it was to be a high “lick” or a low. If the answer by the opposite side was high lick, the ball was thrown up, all engaged in the game watching a chance for a stroke.

Deil-chap Search Source: SND
QUOT:In the beginning of each game [of chow], they are allowed to raise the ball a little above the level of the ground, that they may have the advantage of a surer stroke. This is called the Deil-chap.

Sotter Search Source: SND
QUOT: In shinty a ball is placed, cuts are drawn, and the shortest cut gets the sotter, i.e. he gets the thwack at the ball. Or they toss to begin wi' for the sotter. The captain of the team losing the goal gets the sotter.
