Drawing of lots to decide group

The winner and runner-up of group B of the Dudley Eve Trophy competition will be decided by the drawing of lost after all three teams finished tied with identical records.

Dandy Town, Devonshire Cougars and Robin Hood finished level on three points and had matching goal difference, as well as the same number of goals scored and conceded.

The remarkable set of circumstances arose after Dandy Town Hornets defeated Robin Hood 2-1 at Devonshire Recreation Club at the weekend.

Any other scoreline would have spared the Bermuda Football Association's competitions committee from having to separate the teams by the drawing of lots.

Prior to last weekend's fixture, the BFA confirmed that there was nothing in the rules governing the competition to deal with such a deadlock.

The draw will be held today at the Clyde Best Centre of Excellence at 12.15pm, as well as the Friendship and Shield preliminary draw and Masters Knockout Cup preliminary draw.
