Team points = 2 if a team wins 3 or more of 5 matches within a ‘tie’.
Team points = 0 if a team wins less than 3 of 5 matches within a ‘tie’.

If # of team points are tied between teams, the teams are ranked by # of matches won (MW)
If # of matches won (MW) are tied between teams, the teams are ranked by # of games won – # of games lost differential (GD)
If # of games won – lost differential (GD) are tied between teams, the teams are ranked by # of points won – # of points lost differential (PD)
If # of points won – # of points lost differential (PD) are tied, then the winner team will be chosen by luck of the draw.
