TEAM STANDINGS AND TIE-BREAKERS
Team standings will be based on the following scoring system:
Tie-breaker system is as follows:
(2) Goal differential (max 5 per game)
(3) Most goals scored
(4) Fewest goals allowed
(5) Most shutouts
(6) Goal differential (no maximum)
(7) If still tied, then FIFA penalty kicks will determine the winner.
***If 3 teams are tied, we will proceed down the tie-breakers until there is a winner or one team is eliminated – whichever occurs first. If one team is eliminated, then we will start back with those two remaining teams at tie-breaker one (1) and proceed down the tie-breakers with the remaining two teams.
***If, in the first round of the championship series, the predetermined pairings result in two opponents from the same bracket, realignment of the pairings will be made.
Kickoff will be at the scheduled time unless games are delayed. A team not ready to play at the scheduled time or immediately after the conclusion of the previous game is subject to forfeiting the match.
