For reference in using tie breaking policy please keep in mind:

When using any of the above criteria to break a three way tie the intent is to determine the highest not the lowest place finisher.

e.g.: If three teams are tied in standings and are also tied in their record against each other and the point differential is as follows:

Teams are no longer tied therefore standings would be A-1st, C- 2nd, B-3rd.

For the same situation with a point differential of. A (+4), B (-2), C (-2) A would be 1st. We now have a two way tie between B and C for 2nd so we would revert to using criteria for a two way tie. PART A (record between tied teams)

For the same situation with a point differential of A(+2), B(+2), C(-4) we have a two way tie for 1 st so we would revert to criteria for a two way tie for determining 1st and 2nd , C would be 3rd *
