Tournament Tie-Break Rules
Step 1: Most Wins – The team with the most wins will be given priority ranking.
Step 2: Two-Way Tie, Head-to-Head method – If a tie exists between two teams at the completion of the schedule, the winner of the game played by the two teams involved (head-to-head match-up) will be given priority ranking.
Step 3: Three-Way Tie, Points For and Against method
If a tie exists between three or more teams, the points for and against method will be used. Scores against the team(s) NOT involved in the three-way tie are discarded. The total points scored and allowed for each game is calculated for the teams involved in the three-way tie.
The team with the highest points for and against value will be given priority ranking. The team with the second highest points for and against value will be given the secondary ranking.
Example: Three pool games of the three teams tied.
Game One: A 50 – B 45
Game Two: B 60 – C 38
Game Three: C 45 – A 37
Team A: Game One (+5), Game Three (-8) = -3 Points For and Against
Team B: Game One (-5), Game Two (+22) = +17 Points For and Against
Team C: Game Two (-22), Game Three (+8) = -14 Points For and Against
Team B receives the priority ranking, followed by Team A and then Team C.
In the event of that two teams share the same points for and against result, the score of the game between the two teams shall determine the final ranking.
