2015 NEW RULE
Starting in 2015 there will now be a MERCY RULE. If a team is ahead of their opponents by 5 or more goals at the 9:00 minute mark of the second half. The remainder of the game will be played with running time. If the losing team scores to cut the deficit to under 5 goals the game will go back to stop time. If the winning team scores to make the deficit 5 goals the game will go back to running time. All penalties will remain at 2 minutes stop time or running time.
