Tie Breaker System – All Situations
If two teams are tied using the tie breaker system below and they have played each other,
the head-to-head competition is used to determine ranking. Note, in the event that a team
forfeited a game, that team is eliminated from tie-breaker consideration
and is seeded at the lowest position among the tied teams.
Tie Breaker System – Two Teams
If the won/loss records of two teams are the same, the team that won in their head-to-head
competition is the higher seed. If these teams each beat one another, the goal differential
in their games is used to break the tie. If the goal differential in their contests against
one another is the same, the total of goals scored against each other is used. If the total
of goals scored between the teams is equal, the differential for all common opponents
seeded higher is used. If no common opponents are seeded higher, the goal differential
against the highest seeded common opponent is used.
Tie Breaker System – Three or More Teams (for seeding championships)
If more than two teams are tied in won/loss records, goal differentials among the teams
tied serves as the tiebreaker to determine the best team within the group until only
two teams remain. The final two teams use their head-to-head results to break the tie.
If the top two teams based on goal differentials are tied, the tie is broken with the results
of their head-to-head competition. If the goal differential among all teams tied is the same,
the total of goals scored against each other is used. If the total of goals scored between
the teams is equal, the goal differential between common opponents seeded higher will
be used to determine ranking. This may require averaging the goal differential per
game if the number of games between common opponents is unequal. Should teams
be tied in won/loss record and they have not played each other, goal differentials against
common opponents that are seeded above them are used. If no common opponents
are seeded higher, the goal differential against the highest seeded common opponent is used.
Tie Breaker System-Three or More Teams (for advancement w/in championships)
If all tiebreakers remain equal, their original seeding will serve as the tiebreaker.
Goal differential is a term used to describe the difference between goals scored
against an opponent and the number of goals scored by an opponent against a particular team.
