Conference Alignment[edit]

The 2013 soccer season was the first under the 2012 - 2014 classification cycle. Hall was moved back down to the 6A classification, whereas Van Buren was moved back up to the 7A classification. In an effort to reduce travel costs, the sixteen 7A teams were distributed among four conferences along with the sixteen 6A teams.[1] However, only 7A teams were taken into account when determining 7A state playoff berths.

Regular season[edit]

Teams in the 7A/6A West and 7A/6A South conferences play a single round-robin of seven games, playing once against each opponent. Teams in the 7A/6A Central and 7A/6A East play each other home-and-away in a double round-robin of fourteen games. Matches finishing in a draw after 80 minutes go directly to a penalty shootout. The winner of the shootout is awarded a win, whereas the loser is awarded a loss.

If two or more teams are equal on wins and losses at the end of conference play, the following criteria is used to determine the final standings:[2]

  1. Greater number of wins in matches between the tied teams.
  2. Greater goal difference (up to 3 goals per game)in matches between the tied teams (if more than two teams finish equal on points).
  3. Greater number of goals scored in matches among the tied teams (if more than two teams finish equal on points).
  4. Greater goal difference (up to 3 goals per game)in all conference matches.
  5. Greater number of goals scored in all conference matches.
  6. Coin flip.

State Playoffs[edit]

Power rankings determined seeding and thus which teams qualified to the state playoffs. 6A members were dropped out of the rankings. Bryant was considered a west team for seeding purposes, whereas the four 7A teams from the 7A/6A East conference were considered central teams. Six teams from the west and six from the central advanced to the playoffs. Power ratings were calculated using the following procedures:[3]

  1. 10 points per conference win (x2 for teams playing single round-robin)
  2. 1 point for each conference win of opponents you beat (x2 for teams playing single round-robin)
  3. 1 point for a win against a 7A conference school during conference play (x2 for teams playing single round-robin)
  4. 10 points for conference championship. In case of a tie for conference championship, the higher seed gets the 10-point bonus.
