|While the Pokemon is attempting to score a goal, it is granted a shield equal to (5/7.5/10)% of its max HP and its goals cannot be interrupted while it is shielded.
When the shield from Score Shield is generated, whether the player manages to score or not, it goes on cooldown for about 20 seconds. This means that players cannot continuously generate a shield from Score Shield by rapidly pressing the 'X' button to score.
Although the bonus shields can stack on top of shields from moves and other held items like Buddy Barrier, only the shields from Score Shield can protect you from being interupted when scoring.
Score Shield is best used by Speedster Pokemon that aim to score points in quick succession. Additionally, high HP Pokemon like All-Rounders and Defenders can utilize the item since the shields are based on a percentage of the Pokemon's max HP. This means that the higher the max HP, the more damage the sheld can gain.

Full Stack Build
Score Stack Build
The purpose of this test was to determine if the shield from Score Shield can stack with shields from other sources. The test took note of three instances of shields for each source: (1) the shield from Score Shield only, (2) the shield from the other source only, and (3) the shield from both Score Shield and the other source.
|Score Shield Only
|Cotton Guard Only
|Score Shield Only
|Starlight Recital Only
|Score Shield Only
|Buddy Barrier Only
As a result of the tests, it is confirmed that shields generated from other sources stack on top of the shield from Score Shield while attempting to score.
Shields gained from other sources do not count as part of Score Shield's effect. Once the bonus shields you get from Score Shield has been depleted, you can still get interrupted even if you still have shields from moves or Buddy Barrier .
The purpose of this test was to determine how long before the shield from Score Shield can be generated again after an initial attempt. The cooldown time was measured by noting the cooldown time at the bottom right side of the screen after the item's effect had taken place.
As a result, there is about a 20-second cooldown each time the shield generates. With this in mind, after an unsuccessful attempt to score, you must retreat to safety for a while before you can utilize the item's effect again. We speculate that the purpose of the cooldown is to prevent players from spamming the shield when attempting to score goals.
