The winner of each bracket will advance to a championship game and games scores will be electronically recorded at the main tent
Teams will be awarded points during pool play based on the following system:
Win = 3 points
Tie = 1 point
Loss = 0 points
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 DVIDED BY Average Time Played
i.e. 3 Games + 15 Minutes = Goals Allowed Divided By 3.3
Playoff Format:The Championship game will consist of (1) 25 minute period. The same rules will apply as in pool play. If the score is tied at the end of the 25 period, a “sudden victory” period will be played until a winner is determined.
