UWHScores.com is a system for tracking results of underwater hockey tournaments. It tracks the scores and calculates standings in real time. The schedule dynamically updates to fill seeds and winners/losers into the bracket so you'll always know who is playing when.
UWHScores.com is designed to make the lives of tournament directors easier and give players an easy interface to follow their team's progress through the schedule.
Players can follow the tournament by checking in on anything with internet. The schedule can be filtered a number of different ways from the navigation at the top of the page:
Filtering the schedule can make it easier for players to focus on the parts of the schedule that matter to them.
The schedule can further be filtered by day.
The standings update in real time as the games progress and include tie breakers. This way players can better understand where their team stands and what the potential brackets might look like.
In addition to division, pod and team name, the fields on the standing are:
Teams are ranked by the number of points they have earned (wins and ties). If two teams have the same number of points then the tie will be broken according to the International Rules of Underwater Hockey v10.0 rule 4.3.7
If two teams are tied in ranking, the tie breaking procedure is as follows:
If none of the above can break the tie, the tie will be broken by a coin toss or some other method as directed by the tournament director or head referee.
The standings reflect the tie-breakers in real time (except coin-flip for obvious reason). This means they can change as the day progresses and things unfold. The standings are not final till all the games in a section have been played.
In the event that three teams have the same number of points at the end or round-robin play for a division or pod the tie will again be broken according to the International Rules of Underwater Hockey v10.0 rule 184.108.40.206
The rule states that if three teams are tied and no clear winner from head-to-head can be determined (that is only one team beat the other two), the two-way tie breakers will be applied in order except head-to-head. One team will be separated from the other two as either the top or bottom team. The remaining two teams then restart the tie-breaking sequence for two teams as covered by rule 4.3.7.
For example, if three teams were tied on points and had the same number of wins and losses then goals allowed would be used. The team with the most goals allowed would become the third place team. The remaining two teams would then be compared again starting with head-to-head competition for first and second.
If none of the above can break the tie, the tie will be broken by a three-way coin flip or some other method as directed by the tournament director or head referee.
Hopefully yes. I designed the pages to be mobile friendly and used frameworks geared towards that. It should work on most modern smart phones and tablets. If you have any feedback please send it my way.
Please if you notice any discrepancies in the schedule let somebody know as quickly as possible.
Please notify the tournament director, head referee or Jim Lester.
If you notice an issue with the site or have any general feed back send it my way at firstname.lastname@example.org
If a team forfeit's a match then it will cost them two points in the standings. The other team will receive credit for a win and earn two points.
What about this new three points for a win rule though? Shouldn't a forfiet cost you three points? That's an exilent question, but the rules still only say 2 points for a forfiet.
First, because those are the rules, it is not a decision of this site. For more info on the tie breaker rules, see above.
The rules are setup to discourage teams from running up the score against a weaker opponent.
If ties were broken on goal differential or most goals it would benefit a team to run up as many goals as possible against a weak team to help them in the tie break later. That's no fun.
If you would like to have UWHScores run durring your tournament please talk to me, Jim Lester.
I do this as a side project as as my way to contribute to UWH. I can't commit to being able to run it for every tournament but please reach out to me and we will see what we can do.
You can now!
