2013 CIAC football
points formula
The top four teams in each division will be selected using a point system as follows:
Four classes: Class LL, L, M and S

A school will receive 100 points for defeating a school in its own class;
· 90 points for defeating a school in one lower class;
· 80 points for defeating a school in two lower classes;
· 110 points for defeating a school in one higher class;
· 120 points for defeating a school in two higher classes.

A school defeating a league opponent of a lower class will not be subject to the structure as outlined above but will receive 100 points.

A school will receive 10 points for each victory earned by any opponent it has

The total number of playoff points will be divided by the total number of games played to determine the point value earned by each school.

The following three steps will be used in breaking ties in pairings if two or more schools finish with the same point value in the same division.

1) In the event the schools have met during the regular season, the winner wins the position in question.

2) The wins and ties of each of the opponents are added (2 points per win and l point per tie) and the team with the greatest number of points wins the position in question. This includes each opponent regardless of whether the game was won or lost.

3) If there is still no winner the computer will “flip a coin” to determine the winner of the position. 

The top four (4) teams in each division will qualify for the Semi-final games (24 teams total)

Pequot Conference tiebreakers
The Pequot Football Conference has tiebreakers for determining its divisional and overall league champions.
Divisional champions
1. If there is a tie between two teams, the winner of the head-to-head decision is the divisional champion.
2. If the two teams did not play head-to-head, the division champion shall be the team with the best conference record.
3. If it is still tied, the teams shall be declared co-champions

Conference champion
1. The league champion will be the divisional champion with the best overall record.
2. If the two teams are tied, head-to-head competition will be used to break the tie.
3. If they did not meet in a game, the two divisional champions shall be declared co-champions.

Ironically in their final season in the Pequot before joining the Central Connecticut Conference next fall, Avon has slipped to the third largest team in the league. Avon has 505 boys in grades 9-12, down 35 from a year ago.

The co-op teams from Windsor Locks/Suffield/East Granby and Coventry/Windham Tech/Bolton have taken over the top two spots in the league. Five of the largest programs in the Pequot Conference are co-op programs.

Canton moved up No. 16 in the 20-team league with a larger student population than four other Pequot Conference schools. Canton is the second smallest team in the Uncas Division. Only Stafford/East Windsor is smaller.

Pequot moves back to 
two division format
AVON, May 26, 2014 -- With Housatonic dropping its varsity program due to a low number of players, the Pequot Conference has modified its schedule and divisions.
