Settling Tie Games
Settling Tie Games With Shootouts (Edmonton Inline Rules)
- This will only be done in the Martin Yonge Ice Breaker Tournament and Regular League games.
- The winner of the shootout will get 2 points for the win; and the loser of the shootout will get 1 point for the tie.
- Note 1: the shootout will take place without delay at the end of the tied game.
- Note 2: If one team (or both) does not have a goalie available there will be no shootout and each team will get one point for the tie game.
- The timekeeper will set the score on the score clock to 0-0 and will write "SHOOTOUT" immediately below the record of goals scored in regulation time.
- The home team will decide whether to shoot first or second.
- The teams will alternate shooters until each team has had 3 players shoot (unless it would be unnecessary to send all 3 if the game could be decided with fewer shooters.)
- The timekeeper will record the jersey number of the shooters in the appropriate score column of the game sheet and mark "X" beside a failed attempt and "Y" to indicate a goal. When a goal is scored add one (1) to the scoreboard.
- If the game is still tied after teams have sent 3 shooters each;
a) the shootout continues as teams alternate shooter one at a time until a winner can be declared.
b) all the non-goalie players (shooters) on the team must be used before a player can shoot a second time and, the same rotation of shooters must be used in exactly the same order as the first time through the line-up.
6. When the winner is decided the game sheet shall reflect a one goal margin for the final score. (e.g. A game that ends 6-6 in regulation time will end as a 7-6 game after the shootout.
