Spirit Score Reporter
NOTE: We have had to make some last-minute changes to the Mixed division due to a late team drop. The biggest change will be to Pool A (.shame, CLX, Lotus) round times and scoring with some more changes to the consolation brackets.
All games to 15 (except Mixed Pool A*) with one timeout per half and a floater.
There is a 90-minute soft cap and a 100-minute hard cap
The soft cap occurs once a predetermined time of play has elapsed. At the soft cap, play continues until the current scoring attempt is completed. If, after the current scoring attempt is completed, the game total has not yet been reached by one team, one is added to the higher score and the resulting number is the new game total.
The hard cap is the ending of the game once a predetermined time of play has elapsed. At the hard cap, play continues until the current scoring attempt is completed. If, after the current scoring attempt is completed, the score is tied, play continues until one additional goal is scored. Otherwise, the game ends. The team with the most goals at the end of the game is the winner.
* Pool A in Mixed will have pool play games to 17 with 120-minute soft cap and 130-minute hard cap and two timeouts a half

Pool A will start at 9:30a & Pools B, C, D will start at 10:30a
