5.2 Within each Conference, the teams of each division shall be seeded into the playoff bracket according to their win/lost percentage in regular season games played within that team’s Conference, as scheduled by BCYFCA. Games that have been forfeited shall be counted with equal weight in the calculation of the win/lost percentage as if the game had been played. Games that have been cancelled by the BCYFCA shall be counted in the calculation of the win/lost percentage as if they had never been scheduled.
