    2. Total Points Allowed between the 3 games played

    3. Total Points Scored between the 3 games played

  • If head-to-head is not applicable, all pool play games count towards tie-breakers, not only head to head matchups. If the teams are tied (hold identical records at the end of pool play), the tie will be broken in the following order:

  1. Total Point Differential (point differential for any single game is capped at +/- 25)

  2. Total Points Allowed

  3. Total Points Scored
