TIEBREAKER

If two or more teams are points tied at the conclusion of the Round Robin, then the following procedure will be used to determine the final ranking before the Consolation and Championship games are played:

1. If two teams are tied in total points:

  • 1.1 – The winner of the Round Robin game between the two tied teams gains the higher position
  • 1.2 – The team with the most wins in the Round Robin gains the higher position
  • 1.3 – If the two teams are still tied after tiebreakers 1.1 and 1.2 have been applied:
    • The team with the best Goal Differential (GD) gains the higher position
      • The goal differential of a team will be determined in the following manner:
        • Total number of Goals For (GF) minus the total number of Goals Against (GA)
