Scores and Standings
 
Question: What is the criteria to determine the team positions within their division if they have the same number of points at the end of the season? Is the first criteria goal differential? What are the next criteria? Head to Head game results or total goals, etc.?
 
Answer: As stated in WAGS Rule H.2, “Standings and Awards,” in the case of a tie at the end of the regularly scheduled season, final standings will be determined on the basis of the following tie-breaker sequence:
 
a. Head to Head*
b. Most Wins  
c. Fewest goals allowed
d. Goal Differential
e. Fewest Red Cards
f. Co-Champions/Co-Runners-Up
 
*If three (3) or more teams are tied then the team that earns the most game points in matches between the tied teams shall be the winner. If two (2) teams play each other more than once, the tie breaker will be normalized (point average per game).
