Rules for the 2018 Newington Wrap Up
Rules for the Newington Wrap Up Tournament --NOTE: THESE RULES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED (IN ANTICIPATION FOR 2018) AFTER THE TOURNAMENT FINISHED LAST NIGHT 6/18 DUE TO CONCERNS OF NO GOAL DIFFERENTIAL BEING CONSIDERED IN 2017s TOURNAMENT- WE ALSO HAVE PUT A CAP ON GOALS AGAINST FOR 2018- WE ALSO HAVE REMOVED GOALS IN FAVOR FOR 2018- THIS IS TO ALIGN WITH MOST OTHER TOURNAMENTS AND TO PROMOTE BETTER SPORTSMANSHIP SO COACHES DON'T RUN UP SCORES ON TEAMS-
WE SINCERELY APOLOGIZE FOR ANY CONFUSION ON THE TIMING. WE ARE VOLUNTEERS AND WANTED TO GET THE RULES UPDATED FOR THE 2018 YEAR ASAP SO WE CAN MOVE ON TO MAKING FURTHER IMPROVEMENTS TO THE TOURNAMENT.
THE 2017 RULES REFLECTED POINTS FOR WINS (3) AND TIES (1), THEN HEAD TO HEAD RESULTS, THEN GOALS AGAINST AND THEN GOALS IN FAVOR.
HERE ARE THE MODIFIED RULES FOR 2018, NOT 2017. THIS IS DUE TO COMPLAINTS FROM COACHES OF RUNNING UP THE SCORES AND FROM NOT BEING ALIGNED WITH 99% OF ALL OTHER TOURNAMENTS-
