Five, Six & Seven Team Pools with all teams in common pool. Undefeated teams advance. For more than 2 undefeated teams the following will apply: 1) Point differential among common opponents (Maximum + or – 13 pts.) 2) Point differential totaled for all 3 games (Maximum + or – 13 pts.)
Tie-breaker format below will be followed for teams that are tied with one loss.
Eight Team Pools within an age group will be broken into 2 groups. The winner of each group will play for the championship of the age group.
Tie Breaker: In a 2-team tie, first look at head to head, then point differential up to 13 points. For a tie between three or more teams, head to head will not count; tiebreaker will be determined by point differential (up to 13 points). If the tie is still not broken, it will go to least points allowed for all three games combined.
