Season ends on a bittersweet note…

In the end, despite the 4-3 loss to Point Mallard on Friday, North Iowa won Pool A because they had the best goal differential (+2) in the games played between the three teams that finished the round-robin with a 2-1 record (North Iowa, Great Falls and Point Mallard). As a result and to take the next step, the two teams remaining after that three-way tie was broken were Great Falls and Point Mallard.  Therefore, because a tie had to be broken with only two teams remaining (Great Falls and Point Mallard) the result of their head-to-head match-up in the round-robin was the determining factor, which Great Falls won 2-1, thus resulting in Great Falls advancing to the Semi-Finals as the #2 seed from Pool A.
