Division Standings and Tie-Breakers

By BTHL 02/10/2019, 9:15pm EST

Division standings are calculated automatically when game scores are entered.

Standings are computed for each division by points. Each game is worth 2 points for a win, or 1 point for a tie. Only regular season league games are included in the regular season standings.

If there is a tie on points, the following tie-breakers are used, in order, until the tie is broken:

1. Head-to-head game wins.

2. Total wins.

3. Scoring Percentage. Computed as Total Goals For / (Totals Goals For + Total Goals Against).
