OK, I have hopefully locked down how the participants for next week’s Rockland County Championship will be determined in the event of a tie:
1. Head to head
2. Overall record
3. Common opponents
The key here is overall record. In all likelihood, if two teams are tied — like Suffern and Clarkstown North, for example — the tie will be broken by overall record. Currently, the Rams own a one-game lead on Suffern, 8-6 to 7-7. That said, if Suffern pulls out the win, they will likely finish the regular season tied, forcing the third tiebreaker.
It could be fascinating.
