Tie Breaker Formula
If teams are tied at the end of Pool Play the following TIEBREAKER rule will determine which team(s) will advance.
i. In any situation where two (2) teams are tied, head-to-head competition between the teams will determine the winner.
ii. If more than two (2) teams tie, a point differential tie-breaker will be applied. The point differentials of all games played in the pool are totaled. The tied teams are then ranked according to the sum of the point differential - with the highest number placing first, the second highest placing second. (The maximum that you can beat a team and still gain an advantage is 15 points.)
iii. If two (2) teams are still tied after the application of the formula, go back to (i.) to break the tie.
iv. If there is still a three way tie, three way flip of the coin. Odd coin out.
v. The score of all forfeits shall be 15-0.
