Scoring System to Determine Winners
During pool play, teams will be awarded points on the following basis:
**If there are any forfeits, the average goals against in actual scheduled games played will be added to the total goals against to the team that won by forfeit** Forfeits count as an automatic win for team that has not forfeited.
In the event that there are two or more teams tied in points at the end of the tournament play, the following criteria will be used to determine playoff seeding:
All playoff games will be one 25-minute running clock game. If tied at the end of the game, sudden victory overtime will occur for playoff games only.
No time-outs are permitted. Champion games that are tied at the end of regulation will go to 3- minute sudden victory. If teams are still tied after sudden victory, then brave heart or coin toss will determine the winner to move forward. Both coaches must agree to brave heart; otherwise a coin toss will be used.
Tournament deposits for teams are non-refundable. After balance due date, there are no refund or credits. No refunds will be made in the event of cancellation or shortening of any matches due to inclement weather or anything out of the control of the tournament directors. LGS will make every effort to use contingency plans to maximize game play for all teams.
