You are correct. Colin Campbell said that Rule 48.1 - "A lateral or blind side hit to an opponent where the head is targeted and/or the principle point of contact is not permitted." - is essentially thrown out if the hit is behind the net. Does "behind the net" mean directly behind the net or anywhere in the trapezoid? I don't know.
