East Coast Wizards Columbus Day U14 Tournament Rules


.The tournament schedule is listed above. All games will consist of three 15 minute stop time periods and teams will play all teams in their division in the preliminary round. At the end of the preliminary round the teams will be ranked in order of points, with 2 points being earned for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss.

The top two teams from each division will advance to the quarter final round. In the playoff round teams will play across Divisions with team ranked # 2 in Division 4 playing team ranked #1 in Division 1.  Divisions 2and 3 will play each other in the same manner. The winners of the quarter final games will play in the semi-finals with the winners of those games playing in the final. Teams that don't qualify for the playoffs will play in a consolation game against the similarly rank team in their  Division (#3 Division 1 vs. #3 Division 4, #4 Division 2 vs. # 4 Division 3.).

 In case of a tie in the Quarter Final games the games will proceed directly into a 3 player shootout. If the game is still tied the shootout will continue as sudden death with new shooters until there is a winner. No player can shoot more than once until all players on her team have shot.

Semi-final or final games will consist of three 15 minute stop time periods. If the game is tied at the end of regulation there will be a 5 minute 3 v 3 sudden death overtime. If the game remains tied there will be a 3 player shootout. If the game is still tied the shootout will continue as sudden death with new shooters until there is a winner. No player can shoot more than once until all players on her team have shot.

Time outs - There will be one 30 second timeout allowed per team in the quarter final, semi-final and Final games only. There will be no time outs allowed in the Preliminary Round or consolation games.


Preliminary Round Tie Breaker Rules

In the case of a tie after the preliminary round, team rank will be determined by the following tie-breaking formulas applied to all games played. In order to break the tie, the following formulas will be followed until one rule determines the position of all teams that are tied.


1. Result of game played between the teams tied

2. Most wins

3. Goal Differential

4. Least goals against.

5. Dividing the goals scored in these games by the goals scored against (GF divided by GA), the position being determined in order of the greatest quotient. A quotient involving dividing zero where two or more teams have no goals against and the quotient tie breaker is required, the teams shall be ranked high to low in descending order of "goals for".


Note: Forfeits - If a team forfeits any of its games, and their games become involved in any tie-breaking formula to determine who will advance to the next level of play, the team forfeits all games in the round robin play and the games are recorded as 1-0 victories for the non-offending team.
