Mobile Goals not touching tiles do not score?

Do mobile goals on an alliance robot in their Alliance Home Zone count as scored? The only mention of transitive rules is in connection to the platform, and in the definitions the Alliance Home Zone is defined as the gray foam tiles themselves; it is not a 3-dimensional volume. This definition seems to suggest that only Mobile Goals touching a gray foam tile (or the Alliance Platform) count as scored.

Answered by committee

This definition seems to suggest that only Mobile Goals touching a gray foam tile (or the Alliance Platform) count as scored.

This interpretation is correct.
