NZIHL Schedule and Results
Games that the Auckland Mako play in will not count towards the NZIHL standings. Goals and player statistics will be tracked, but the Auckland Mako will not be eligible for the playoffs. This is because the Auckland Mako play fewer games than the other NZIHL teams and also due to the varied nature of the team roster.The Auckland Mako game stats are recorded separately here.
The playoffs are contested as follows:
Round One: Semi-Finals (Regular Season 2nd vs. Regular Season 3rd)
Round Two: Grand Finals (1st of Regular Season vs. Winner of Semi-Finals)
The tie-breaking system for two teams is as follows:
- Highest points earned at the culmination of the Round Robin
- If tied, then ‘head to head’ match results between the tied teams shall determine the final placing
- If still tied, the goal differential in total throughout the Round Robin between these two teams shall determine the placing between them
- If still tied, the final determination shall be based upon the team who has scored the most goals in total throughout the round robin.
