High school players should not exceed a playing time of 70 minutes per match and/or 90 minutes per day.
In the event of a tie after 70 minutes of play in a knock-out playoff match or final:
If the match is not decided in regulation time (ends in a “tie” score); the team with the greater number of tries will be declared the winner.
If the match is still not decided (teams have equal number of tries), the team with the greater number of converted tries will be declared the winner.
If the match is still not decided (teams have equal number of converted tries), the winner will be determined by a penalty shoot-out between the two teams to take place as follows:
The kicks at goal should be part of the match and be the responsibility of the referee. The touch judges and match commissioner may help the referee. Before the kicks at goals, the two captains shall toss a coin to decide which goal posts to use and toss again to decide who will kick first. The match commissioner may move the penalty shoot-out to another field if necessary to the competition schedule.
The first series will consist of five placed kicks taken on the ‘22 meter line’ in front of the posts.
The kicks at goal will be taken, for each team, by each of the five players, nominated by the captains, who were on the field of play at the end of that match. In the event of an injury, a player initially nominated to kick, may be replaced however his/her replacement shall be a player who was on the field of play at the end of that match.
The five players shall take turns to kick at goal. Teams will alternate: Team A, Team B, Team A, Team B, etc.
In the event of a tie after the first series of kicks at goal, additional kicks shall be taken, still from the ‘22 meter line’ in front of the posts, alternatively by each team, until one team has an advantage for the same number of kicks taken. Each of these additional kicks shall be taken by a different player who did not participate in the first series of kicks.
