Tie Breakers in Pool Play 

Win is 2 points/ Tie 1 point/ Loss 0 Points 

  1. Record 
  2. Head to head 
  3. Goals Allowed 
  4. Goal Differential Max score differential per game is set at 10 goals.
  5. Goals Scored 

Head to head in detail: This breaks ties based on the record (or points, if points are used) against the teams tied with. For example, if 3 teams have the same overall record at 3-1 and all 3 of the teams played each other an equal number of times and one team's record against the other two was 2-0, another was 1-1, and the other was 0-2. The tie-breaker would order them accordingly. If all three teams had identical 1-1 records, this tie-breaker would not be used and goals allowed would be applied. 

Time Outs: 

One 30 second timeout per game per team - time does not stop. No timeouts last two minutes of games. Penalty time stops during timeouts. No timeouts in overtime play. 

Penalty Time: 

Technical: 45 seconds - Time and a half 

Personal: 1:30 to 6 minutes - Time and a half 

Penalty time starts when player enters the box and ref resumes play.
