    Can I rewrite these sentences like this?

    The penalty area (colloquially also known as the 18-yard box, penalty box or simply the box), is an area of an association football pitch. It is rectangular and extends 16.5 metres (54 ft) to each side of the goal and 16.5 metres (54 ft) in front of it. Within the penalty area is the penalty spot (or penalty mark), which is 11 metres (36 ft) from the goal line, directly in-line with the centre of the goal.
    The words quoted above come from a wiki link. It contains several usese of preposition which I have not seen before. I assume they are right and am curious whether I am allowed to rewrite them as following:
