Regular season standings (final)
Subway 6-3
Oswego Sub Shop 6-3
Scriba Electric 6-3

     Each 6-3 team had a 2-1 overall record against another, so head-to-head consideration was a wash. The Subway team was awarded the #1 seed in the playoffs based on a perfect 3-0 record in the final round of games. Oswego Sub Shop was given the #2 seed because they finished 2-1 in their last three games.

Therefore, the 2013 playoff schedule looks like this:

                             6:30 p.m. #2 Oswego Sub Shop vs. #3 Scriba Electric

Wed., Aug. 7         6:00 p.m. championship
