Tiebreaking Rules for Advancement to the Semi-Finals
rules apply since semi-final placement cannot always be determined by wins and losses alone. The following criteria is used
to determine which teams will advanced to the semifinal round:
1) teams receive points; 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss
2) winner of head to head, during regular tournament
3) least goals scored against during regular tournament play
4) goals for during regular tournament play
5) first goal scored in
head to head during regular tournament play
6) least penalty minutes taken during regular tournament play
7) A rule will be make by
the tournament staff
Game Forfeits- Game forfeits do to a no show will automatically result in a 1 to 0 score. The team
causing the forfeit will automatically be assessed the loss. Games ending prematurely due to a referee decision, or a team leaving
the ice will automatically end with a loss being assessed to the team causing the forfeit and a win to their opponent regardless
of the score. If the opponent of the forfeiting team had been winning then the score will remain as is, if the opponent
was losing then the score will revert back to a 1-0 score. Teams causing forfeits under these circumstances will no not
be eligible for semifinal or championship games.
Tiebreaking Rules for Advancement to the Semi-Finals (Example)
rules determine first, second, third, etc..seeding is done on a 1 by 1 stand alone basis. For example, three teams
are tied with four points. In head to head play team 1 beats team 2, and team 3 beats team 1, and team 2 beats
team 3. Team 1, team 2 and team 3 have goals against of 8,10,9 respectively. Under this scenario, all three teams
are tied with 4 points a piece (Rule1), so head to head (Rule 2) is applied. Since each team beat one another we move to least
goals against (Rule 3). Since team 1 had 8 goals against vs. 10, and 9, team 1 would take the 1st seed. For the 2nd
seed we exclude team 1, and reconsider head to head, and least goals against. Since team 2 beat team 3, team 2 would
take the 2nd seed even though team 3 has less goals against then team 2.
