Playoff Overtime Rules

Overtime

 In the case of a tie game during a playoff match, two five-minute overtime periods will be played (no sudden death). A coin is tossed and the team that wins the toss decides which goal it will attack in the first overtime period. The other team takes the kick-off start the overtime. The team that wins the toss takes the kick-off to start the second overtime period. In the second overtime period, the teams change ends and attack the opposite goals. There is no time allowed for any break between overtime periods. If the match remains tied after the overtime periods, penalty kicks will be used to decide the game.

Penalty Kicks

Referee chooses the goal that will be used for the kicks. Each team will designate five (5) players to take the kicks (this could include the goalie). Any player who played in the match may change places with the goalkeeper at any time during the taking of the kick at the “Penalty Mark”. The referee will toss a coin and the team whose captain wins will take the first kick. Each team will take five (5) kicks, alternating players from each team. Each kick will be taken by a different player until all five have kicked or until a team has an insurmountable lead in goals. The team with the most goals is declared the winner. If each team has the same number of goals after five (5) kicks have been taken, the taking of the kicks continues using the remaining players until such time as each team has taken the same number of kicks and one team has scored a goal more than the other. No player may take a second kick until all his/her teammates have had a turn. All players other than the players taking the kick and the opposing goalkeeper shall remain outside the penalty area towards mid-field. No coaches, players, parents, or other spectators are allowed behind or alongside the goal area.
