Ø       ( 3 team scenario only) The team with a clear best record in games among the three tied teams.  NOTE:  The tiebreaker formula below never reverts to a two team tiebreaker.

Goal Average

The goal average of a team is to be determined by dividing the total number of goals for and against into total number of goals for, with the team having the highest percentage winning the higher position.  

 

Example:          For 10 goals, Against 4 goals      Percentage 10/14 = .714

                        For 10 goals, Against 5 goals      percentage 10/15  = .667

 

.714 wins tiebreaker.
