2013 Iowa State Cup, Spring Competition: U13-U14, U19B
Thanks to tourneymachine.com for the complementary use of their tool for our Iowa State Cup!

I'm using the tourneymachine.com tool to provide a convenient way to push out scores shortly after matches conclude (via text/email) and/or for them to be in a mobile-friendly format. I will still keep official results and standings, including advancement, with me at my administrative trailer behind the concession stand at Cownie. Should there be any discrepancies, official records are what I'm keeping by hand. Please alert me should you see any differences.
Since there is the possibility tiebreaker situations/criteria may be interpreted differently by different people, I stress that I don't want teams leaving Cownie until I have posted the teams that will be advancing to the semifinals. After matches conclude, I get the official score reporting form from the Referee Crew, update and double-check my scores and math and apply tiebreaker criteria when necessary. Thank you for your patience.
Tiebreaker criteria, as per State Cup Rules:
