2021 SLV Tie Break Forumla: All Divisions

SLV TOURNAMENT TIE-BREAK FORMULA: ALL DIVISIONS

In reseeding teams or in any other tie-break situation, the following tournament tie-breaker will be utilized:

  1. Head to head competition; all tied teams must have played each other for this to apply;
  2. Fewest goals allowed;
  3. Highest goal differential, total goals scored (12 goals per game max, in a full-length game), less total goals given up; In the event of a forfeit, the score will be recorded as 13-7 for any full-length game.
    • For shortened games, ex. CCWC (20-minute games), max goal differential per game will be 6. A forfeit will be recorded as 7-4.
  4. Most goals scored;
  5. Coin toss 

NOTE: After each level of criteria is utilized, the tie-break resets. Example: If there is a 3-way tie, and one team secures a seed/slot based on goals against, the tie-break resets to head-to-head for the next seed/slot if relevant.

In reseeding teams for the playoff rounds, the tournament will try to avoid duplicate games between teams unless the game is still in the divisional championship stream. For consolation games, staff will look to schedule opponents based on whether or not they have already played.
