Dual tie breaker criteria is as follows:

1) Head to Head Competition (dual win not individual matches)
2) Total team points scored in dual competitions
3) Total team points scored against the team in dual competitions
Each time the tie is broken the next tie is broken by starting at the head to head again.

Examples:
In the event of a 3-way (or greater) tie in a Round Robin (ex. Team A wins over Team B, B wins
over C, C wins over A). Here is how the criteria will break the tie.


Total Points for Teams in all Duals in the Round Robin. If this breaks the tie, the other Dual is
broken by the Head to Head matchup.

Example 1:
Team A – 175 points for
Team B – 150 points for
Team C – 200 points for
Team C wins, then B and C are decided by Head to Head matchup.

Example 2:
If 2 teams are tied for the most overall points, it then goes to least points giving up in all Duals
Team A – 200 points for, 75 points against
Team B – 150 points for, 50 points against
Team C – 200 points for, 85 points against

Team B wins, for giving up the least amount of points and A and C are decided by Head to Head match up.
