TIE-BREAKERS

To determine teams advancing to the semifinal and final rounds. If more than 2 teams are tied, as soon as the tie is broken, the tiebreaker will then reset to Head-to-head and reapplied to any remaining ties. If there are more than 2 teams tied, Head-to-Head will not be used and the first tiebreaker will be the Goal Quotient until it's back down to only 2 teams tied in points. At that time, head-to-head would then apply. Head-to-Head is only used if or when it is down to only two teams that are tied in points.

  1. Head-to-Head Competition - Direct play between two tied teams.(Goes away should there be more than 2 teams tied with same points.)

  2. Goal Quotient - The team with the greater % will advance. GF/(GF +GA)

  3. Fewest Goals Against

  4. Most Goals FoR

  5. Coin Toss

Note: Forfeits - If a team forfeits any of its games, and becomes involved in any tie-breaking formulas to determine its eligibility to advance to the next level of play, the team forfeits all games in the round-robin play and can not play in the playoffs. Actual forfeited game(s) will be score 3-0 losses to the team that forfeited, all other played games of the forfeited team will remain with the game as played and scored.
