Ties - Continuation - Each and every game is to be 2.5 hours in length. We will, however, allow certain games to exceed this limit if decided upon by the site supervisor. In the event of a tie that exceeds the 2.5 hour time limit the game will be ended and the higher seed will advance. We have no makeup dates or additional hours to re-schedule games --- all decisions will be made by the site supervisor. 
 
The 9 AM game on Saturday needs to be completed no later than 11:30 AM, we will need to pull both teams off the field if this limit expires, if this happens the higher seed will advance in the Herb Isakason Bracket.
 
We appreciate your understanding in regards to this.
