All games require a winner and loser; NO TIED GAMES! Should the game score be tied at the end of regulation time, the tie shall be broken by shoot out. In group play, teams advance to the next round according to game points earned from game results within the group:

  • 4 win in regulation or by forfeit
  • 3 win by shoot out
  • 2 loss by shoot out
  • 1 loss in regulation
  • 0 forfeit

Shoot Out Result - regardless of goal difference or total goals scored during shootout, the game score shall be recorded as +1 goal for the winner (eg. game tied 5-5, final game score 6-5 by shoot out) for calculating advancement.

If three (3) or more teams shall have equal points, further classification shall be established as follows:

BL 9.6.3.2.2 If at any time during the application of the procedure set our in this BL 9.6.3.2, the number of tied teams is reduced to two (2), then BL 9.6.3.1 shall be used to determine which of the two (2) remaining teams is placed higher.
