Stats, Tiebreakers

  • Single Assists Only
  • It is hard enough for refs to accurately report who passed the ball, let alone second assists! And its a beer league.. Did that second assist really do anything?
  •  
  • Game Tie
  • * Three - 20 minute periods. In the event of a tie, we go to 3 player shootout. Then to sudden death shootout.
  •  
  • Standings Tie Breaker
  • - Ties will first go to the head to head record.
  • - Secondly will go to the goal differential of the head to head matchup.
  • - Finally will go to the total leaague goal differential.
  • - If STILL tied, we go to a coin flip. At an undisclosed location. Friday Night Lights style.
