STANDINGS
Standings are determined by the following point system for all divisions:

  • 6 points for a win
  • 3 points for a tie
  • 0 points for a loss

Additional points:

  • One point for each goal scored (max of 3 per game).  Losing team receives points for goals scored also (max of 3 per game).
  • One point for each shutout.

In the event of a forfeited game, the winner will be credited with a 3-0 win and awarded 10 points.
A game abandoned by a team will result in the opposing team winning.  The final score will be based on the score at the time the game was stopped.
Teams are allowed 5 minutes from scheduled game time until the match is declared a forfeit.
No points are awarded if neither team shows up.

Example:  A 0-0 tie will be scored as 4 points for each team (3 points for a tie, 1 point for the shutout).  A 4-2 game will be scored as 9 points for the winning team (6 points for the win, plus 3 points for goals) and 2 points for the losing team (for the 2 goals scored).

Based on the number of teams in the division and the number of games guaranteed, some divisions may not have a head to head matchup which is why the point system above is used.
