Tie Breaker Rules

TIE BREAKER RULES
For divisions with wildcard teams, the wildcard teams will be the teams that do not win their bracket, with the highest point totals. In the event of a tie on point totals, the below tie breaking system will apply.

1. Head to Head (where applicable).  **IN CALCULATING TIE BREAKERS FOR WILDCARDS HEAD TO HEAD IS NOT USED**
2. Fewest goals allowed.
3. Most goals scored.
4. If required to determine the winner for advancement after steps 1, 2, & 3 still result in a tie, penalty kicks will be taken thirty (30) Minutes before the scheduled start of the quarterfinal or semifinal game.

If more than two teams are tied at the end of the preliminary round, the tie breaker rules listed above will be used until one team is eliminated (starting at step 2).

The remaining two teams will be compared beginning again with Step 1 of the Tie Breaker Rules (Head to Head) until 1 team is determined the winner.
