If the score remains tied, the game will be determined by a kick-off. Each team will appoint one kicker. A coin toss will determine who kicks first. Kicks will start from a point 15 meters from the try line. The kicker may place or drop kick. Kickers will alternate, moving from the 15 meter marked by one meter increments, until one kicker is unable to match her opponent’s kick.


Rankings will be determined by Wins (3 points), Ties (1 point), and Losses (0 points), and then head to head scoring. If needed we will look to point differentials, tries scored, and points scored to determine rankings. Forfeits will results in a -5 points for a team.
