The team with the highest point total in their pool will move on to the playoffs.
If, at the end of the pool play, there is a tie in total points, the pool winner will be determined in the following manner:
1. A head to head comparison of the tied teams. The winner, in head to head competition, advances (If three teams are tied, move to next tie breaker)
2. A comparison of total wins by team. The team with the most wins advances.
3. A comparison of goals allowed. The team with the fewest goals allowed advances.
4. Coin Toss
In case of partial games played due to weather the following ADDITIONAL criteria will be used to determine a division championship:
# Goals Allowed DIVIDED BY Average Time Played
i.e. 3 Games + 15 Minutes = Goals Allowed Divided By 3.3
