Specific Select League Rules
Games do not end in a tie.
A 2-player Braveheart competition —1 field player and 1 goalie per team — determines winner as follows:
A goalie from each team protects the same cage (they are in or out of the goal based on who has possession.
Braveheart starts with a draw at midfield. Players position for the draw on the same side teams started the game on.
If a goalie makes a save, they are allowed a free clear to her teammate, who then takes the ball out to the 12-meter fan before attacking, allowing the goalies to switch places. Defenders can engage as soon as the ball is cleared to the 12-meter fan.
