A Team that sweeps both rounds automatically wins the championship. Otherwise, the number one and two ranked teams meet in the Finals round with the former having a twice-to-beat advantage over the number two team. Games in the Finals go into extra time if the score is a draw at the end of Regulation Time. The extra time consists of two 15-minute periods. If there is still no winner after the extra time, then the game will go to a penalty shootout (free kick) to decide the winner.
