We have established certain policies regarding keeping score and tracking team and/or division standings. The table below summarizes our approach:
|Division||Keep Score?||Keep Standings?||Post Standings?|
For the divisions where we keep and/or post standings, our methodology is as follows:
|Regular Season||Hillsborough Cup|
|Goal Differential||1 (max 3)||1 (max 3)|
The Hillsborough Cup is a tournament held over the last two weeks of the seasonfor U10, U12 and U14 divisions. The format changes somewhat each year based on the number of teams in each division. We typically construct round-robin play-in brackets to determine the teams that advance to the single elimination semi-final and final rounds.
The winner of the Hillsborough Cup represents Hillsborough in the annual Foster City regional tournament in late November / early December. For U12 & U14 divisions, if the winner of the season is not the winner of the Hillsborough Cup, those two teams will play one last deciding game to determin the representative team for the Foster City tournament.
