Injury Time

Tournament Scoring System
The following point system will be used to determine 1st in each group and the wildcard selection during preliminary rounds:

Six (6) points for each win

One (1) point for each goal (up to 4 goal max)

One (1) points for a shutout

Three (3) points for a tie

Zero (0) points for a loss

A forfeit will result in a 1-0 loss for the forfeiting team


At the end of each game, the Coach or Team Administrator must carefully review and sign the scorecard. The coach or Team Administrator should review the SilverLakes website to verify scores properly recorded and contact Field Marshal and/or Tournament Director immediately of any possible errors. The scorecard is official match record and may not be changed except under the following circumstances:





If Coaches/Team Administrators of both teams, meet with Field Marshal and agree to a score correction, the Field Marshal will correct the score and other records accordingly.

If Referee verifies incorrect score was recorded, Field Marshal (with Tournaments Director’s approval) may correct score and other records accordingly.

Scores incorrectly posted on the Website shall be investigated by Field Marshall by checking the original match record and corrected accordingly.



If Referee verifies incorrect player was recorded as receiving Red Card (includes double Yellow), Field Marshal (with Tournament Director’s approval) may correct records accordingly.



For 12 team divisions, the wild card team will be the team that does not win their bracket, with the highest point total of all three brackets. In the event of a tie on point totals for a Wild card (or within any Bracket), the following tie-breaking system will apply.

· Head to Head (where applicable).

· Goal Differential, total all goals counting for (maximum 4 in any individual game) minus total all goals counting against (maximum 4 in any individual game)

· Goals Scored, total goals counting for (maximum 4 in any individual game)

· Goals Allowed, total goals counting against (maximum 4 in any individual game)

· F.I.F.A. kicks from the penalty mark

(unless otherwise mutually agreed by both Coaches or Team Administrators, scheduled 30 minutes prior to next match at match site—special goal may be used)


Forfeits/Team Disqualifications

If a team forfeits due to a no show or not having enough players during the preliminary round, the following will apply “Forfeit one-forfeit all”. If a team forfeits in a later round, only that match will be forfeited. If a team doesn’t have their player cards present by the end of the match, only that match will be forfeited. Games will be recorded as a 1-0 victory for the opposing team. Any team that forfeits will be reported to their State Association.


Match Preparation

Teams will present themselves at the field to the Field Marshal for check-in 30 minutes prior to game time. All matches will have a 5 minutes grace period to appear with at least 5 players (2010 thru 2005) to avoid a forfeit. The home team is the first team listed in the schedule, has a choice of field side, must provide the game ball, and must change jerseys in the event of a referee determined color conflict with the opposing team. Teams and spectators must be on opposite sides of the field or as instructed by tournament officials with teams being on one side and spectators on the other.



The substitution will be allowed during a natural stoppage of the match at the referee’s discretion. All divisions, free substitution, and re-entry will be allowed.


Player/Coach Conduct

Any player receiving a double yellow / red card or coach receiving an ejection shall be ineligible to participate in the remainder of that match, plus the following match. If a player or coach is ejected for assault, then the player or coach shall be ineligible for the remainder of the tournament and their player or administrator card will be turned over to their respective State Association.



Team/Spectator Conduct

Coaches have total responsibility for their players and spectators at all times. If the referee must terminate a game for the misconduct of players or spectators, the offending team may be disqualified from further tournament participation. The forfeiture rule will be imposed and no refunds will be given to the offending team.


2 Yard Sideline Rule

All spectators must always be at least 2 yards away from the sideline. This rule will be enforced by the Referee Field Coordinator and Tournament Officials.

Inclement Weather or Unexpected Termination of Play

In the event of inclement weather, which the Tournament Committee deems as being unsafe for the players and/or the fields for the competition to continue; or the unexpected termination of the match, the following system for determining the winner will be implemented:


Matches that are at the half time break or in the second half of play will have the score stand.


Matches that are less than 20 minutes into the first half will be deemed not to have been played.


Matches for a given day may be postponed and played the following day if fields are available.


Matches may be shortened in order to play all assigned matches. If all assigned matches are unable to be played, awards will be made based on a point system to be determined by the Tournament Committee.
