Records versus 1st place team and continue down until the tie is broken; 3. If teams are still tied, total goals scored minus total goals against with no more than 5 goals counting in games where the differential is greater than 5; 4. If more than two teams are tied, than the formula will be used to determine the top team and then the procedure will start again from #1; 5. A coin flip by the commissioner or designee.
In the situation of three of more teams tying: after determining the highest seeded team, the tie breaking procedure reverts back to the start of the tie breaking procedure to seed the next team. This process continues until all tied teams have been seeded.
