SOUTHEAST SECTION PLAYOFF PROCEDURES

The top four regular season records will qualify for the Southeast Semi-Finals, with the top two seeds hosting the lower two seeds as follows: #4 at #1 and #3 at #2. The highest remaining seed will host the Southeast Section Final. If ballclubs with the same regular season record are tied for any of the postseason berths, the procedures below will come into play.

When two ballclubs are tied for a seed or the final playoff berth, the seed or berth will be awarded based on:
1 - Head-to-head results in regular season games
2 - Strength of Victory (total wins of defeated opponents)
3 - Coin toss* or play-in game**  (home team determined by coin toss)

When more than two ballclubs are tied for a seed or the final playoff berth, the clubs will be ranked and the seed or berth awarded based on:
1 - Head-to-head record among tied clubs in regular season games
2 - Strength of Victory (total wins of defeated opponents)
3 - Coin toss* or play-in games**.  Clubs that are still tied after steps 1 and 2 will enter a random draw for home/away/bye to determine match-ups for play-off game(s).

ALL TIEBREAK SITUATIONS ARE DETERMINED IN THE ORDER LISTED ABOVE.  IF STEP 1 DOES NOT BREAK THE TIE, GO TO STEP 2 AND CONTINUE UNTIL TIE IS BROKEN.

* Both teams must agree to a coin toss.  If one team wants to play, a game will be played.
** In the event that playoff games are needed, the date/time/site will be determined by HTL Executive Board unless teams come to an agreement by 7pm on the Monday following the end of the regular season.
