    • The KSFL Rule for TIe Breakers taken, directly from the rules of play: In the event of a three-way tie, the tie will be broken by the following criteria: 

      • Fewest points allowed in league play (MSD allowed 52 pts, Perk 112, M-burg 114)

        • MSD is thus the #1 seed.​

      • Fewest points allowed vs the next seeded team(s) (higher first, then lower) Not Needed

      • Points differential in league play (avg margin of victory). Not Needed
