    ·         At that time the game will return to 3 on 3 format.
    ·         If the game remains tied there will be a 3 player per team shootout. Both teams must have the 3 players that are to participate in the shootout circled on the game sheet PRIOR to the start of the game. If game is still tied after the shootout, the shootout continues with the first player on the game sheet from each team that has not shot. This continues 1-1 until one of the teams comes out ahead.
