State Tournament Tie Breaker Rules
NYSCSHA – Tie Breaking Rules to Determine Standings Position  

If two or more teams have an equal number of points, their position in the standings shall be determined by the following tiebreaking format. If one tiebreaker establishes a position for one or more teams, each team is placed in the applicable position. Once a team is placed, the remaining tied teams shall start the tiebreaking process over again at step 1.

(If all tied teams have not played each other, then proceed to step 2. Note: a team may go into the tiebreaking process having defeated another of the tied teams and still not advance) 

The tiebreaker formulas are as follows:

1.  The results of the head-to-head games played between the tied teams in opposing divisions in the following order:

a. Standings — Most points.

b. Most wins.

c. Differential — Subtracting goals scored against from goals scored in these games, the positions being determined in order of the greatest surplus.

d. Quotient — Dividing the goals scored in these games by the goals scored against, the positions being determined in order of the greatest quotient. A quotient involving dividing by zero (0) has higher standing than a quotient from dividing by any number other than zero. Where two or more teams have no goals against and the quotient tiebreaker is required, the teams shall be ranked high to low in descending order of “goals for.”

e. Most periods won — In the games played by each tied team, points will be awarded for each regulation periodwon (2 points) and for each regulation period tied (1 point). Positions shall be in the order of highest point total.

f. Quickest first goal — The team that scored the quickest goal in their applicable preliminary round games shall be ranked highest. 

2.  If a tie exists, the results of all the games played by the teams tied in the following order.

a. Most wins.

b. Differential — Subtracting goals scored against from goals scored in these games, the positions being determined in order of the greatest surplus.

c. Quotient — Dividing the goals scored in these games by the goals scored against, the positions being determinedin order of the greatest quotient. A quotient involving dividing by zero (0) has higher standing than a quotient from dividing by any number other than zero. Where two or more teams have no goals against and the quotient tiebreaker is required, the teams shall be ranked high to low in descending order of “goals for.”

d. Most periods won — In the games played by each tied team, points will be awarded for each regulation period won (2 points) and for each regulation period tied (1 point). Positions shall be in the order of highest point total.

e. Quickest first goal — The team that scored the quickest goal in their preliminary round games shall be ranked highest. 

3.  If the above procedure does not break the tie, the teams shall use a shootout procedure.
