    Re: New HS Rule Change - OT & PK's

    Football allows co-champions.

    If you are changing the rules to break all other ties except different classifications, why would you still want to leave the door open for co-champs ? Except for track & swimming I believe all other HS sports have tiebreakers that allow for 1 state champ.

    What can you say in your school cheer, " We're # .5 " ? Are the coaches/AD's the decision makers regarding this new rule? I think it still needs to be revised further.[/quote]

    New PK Rule

    I know it's early but there are some non tournament games that have been played. Is anyone aware of this new rule being used ? Also this is just a guess but I think it's too risky for 2 different classification teams to agree to use the PK before the game. I wouldn't believe anyone would want to take the chance of an L on their record.

    Anyway, there are painfully few close games in HS soccer, so the rule will not have the impact you predict. Besides, draws should be allowed in all soccer games EXCEPT for playoffs and championship matches.
    Tryouts-some people actually will have them . Glad your school has plenty of uniforms . I agree about regular season ties. They have managed so far to figure out tiebreakers. But no more co-champs !!! Where does your DD go to school ? I will send my eleven year old over & let her dress out for Varsity games this year.

    You know the sad thing is I'll bet there is a huge % of H S coaches that are not aware of the new rule & tryouts begin in just 2 weeks.

    Of course they may bot be aware due to GHSA not getting the word out. This new rule will have a tremendous impact. Coaches should be made a ware now.

    You're right. Why go through all of this effort to get rid of tie breakers and then allow the State Championship to end in a tie?

    Explain
    Based on the original statement it sounds like there are a lot of ties in HS Games. It sounds like these games could go on for quite some unscheduled time. Let's face it, if a game is tied after 90 minutes of play, there's a strong posibility that it will be tied after the over times as well.

    Since most HS games are played on week nights I hope the sports that share the same fields don't have to start after these long, unscheduled game extensions.

    New HS Rule Change - OT & PK's

    Had heard that there was a new rule change to help eliminate all the ties . This is the response I received. Thought this new info would be help.

    Here
    is a summary of what happens if the match ends in a tie at the end of the
    second half:
    (1) If the teams are from different classifications, the match is a tie.
    NOTE: If both coaches agree before the game to break the tie and if they
    notify the head official, they may play an overtime procedure.
    (2) If the teams are from the same classification during the regular season
    or playoffs, the teams will play 2 five-minute overtime periods. If the
    score remains tied after the second overtime period, the teams will go
    through a penalty-kick procedure using 5 players. If the score remains
    tied, 5 more players will be selected for a "sudden victory" shootout.
    (3) If the state championship match remains tied at the end of the two
    overtime periods, the team are co-champions.
