2 Weeks To Go!

There are 2 weeks left in the regular season and a number of scenarios can still unfold.  If 2 or more teams are even in total points, the following tie-breaker rules will be applied:

  • Overall goal difference
  • Overall goals scored
  • Points in matches between tied teams
  • Goals difference in matches between tied teams
  • Goals scored in matches between tied teams
  • Coin toss

First Place

  • Direwolves need 1 point to secure first place
  • Lightning need to win both games and have Direwolves lose both games (Lightning would win the tie-breaker)
  • Red Bulls need to win both games and have Direwolves lose both games (Direwolves would likely win the tie-breaker)

Second Place

  • Lightning need to match or better the results of Red Bulls (Lightning would win tie-breaker)
  • Red Bulls need to better the results of Lightning

Third Place

  • Nightmares need to win both games and have either Lightning or Red Bulls lose both games (Lightning & Red Bulls (likely) win the tie-breaker)
  • If not, Lightning or Red Bulls will finish third (Since Lightning & Red Bulls play each other, they cannot both pass Direwolves which means Direwolves cannot drop to third)

Fourth Place

  • Nightmares need to match of better the results of Emeralds and to a lesser extent Vaders (Nightmares will likely win the tie-breaker)
  • Emeralds need to better the results of Nightmares
  • Vaders need to win both matches and have Nightmares & Emeralds lose both (Since Nightmares & Emeralds play each other, Vaders need a draw in that match but even if that happens, they’ll likely lose the tie-breaker)
  • Lightning or Red Bulls could drop to fourth if they lose both and Nightmares win both (Lightning & Red Bulls likely win the tie-breaker so a fourth place finish is a low probability for either)

Fifth & Sixth Place

  • Emeralds need to match the results of Vaders to get fifth place and could possibly drop to sixth if they don’t
  • Vaders need at least 1 more win than Emeralds to pull even for fifth (Vaders would likely win the tie-breaker)
  • Nightmares could drop to fifth or even sixth place but they would likely win the tie-breaker

Here’s the schedule for Wednesday night:

  • Vaders vs Nightmares – 6 pm
  • Emeralds vs Lightning – 6 pm
  • Direwolves vs Red Bulls – 7 pm
