English term or phrase:without the boat speed they get scored
Speaker: "You can see with the girls, they don’t have quite the power that the men’s crews do so they don’t have the ability to get through the whitewater as easily. **Without the boat speed they get scored** a little bit and the girls really have to work overtime."
I don't quite understand the meaning of "boat speed" here, either.
According to the Australian Slang Glossary by Natalya Belinsky (thanks, D. Seycek!), "score" can have the following meanings:
1. latest news or state of progress: “What's the score on Malcolm?”
2. prostitute's customer
3. sum of twenty dollars; $20
4. (obsolete) sum of twenty pounds; £20
5. get or obtain: “scored the job”
6. be successful in obtaining a partner for casual sex
7. obtain illegal drugs for personal use
8. (horseracing, etc.) win a race
Neither of them seems to fit here. Any idea or creative inspiration?

It is good to have the Australian glossary (can you give the website some time?) nOthing seems to fit; I was just wondering. Could it mean they get penalty points ? for losing valuable time or something like that? You must be a real profi in the world of

Explanation: could it mean that beacuse the boat is not as fast, it doesn't skim across the surface as easily but sinks down further, cutting into the water?
to "score" a surface can mean to scratch it or to cut into it.
just guessing though
