Best Answer

They are ranked on a point system. First order is determined by number of wins in current season. If tied then the teams that are tied default to number of games played to determine who is above whom with the lower number prevailing over the higher. If tied here as well then the teams involved default down to number of games won. If still a tie remains then it defaults down to number of points earned by the team against the other team that is tied. If three teams or more are tied at this level then the highest % of points gained amongst the teams not including odd number games. Finally, if by some miracle they remain tied then the greater difference between goals for and goals against determines the winner.
