O’Dea holds tiebreaker with Seattle Prep

There will be no extra game played at the end of the regular season to determine the fourth seed in the Metro League. If O’Dea and Seattle Prep both win tonight (or if they both lose), the two would end the regular season with an identical 12-4 league record.

The Irish would win the tiebreaker by virtue of division record. The first tiebreaker is head-to-head record, but the teams split their two meetings. The tiebreaker then goes to division record. O’Dea is 6-2 in the Mountain Division, having swept Bishop Blanchet and Lakeside, and splitting with Seattle Prep and Eastside Catholic. The Panthers are 5-3 in the Mountain, also sweeping Bishop Blanchet and Lakeside, as well as splitting with O’Dea. Seattle Prep, though, lost twice division leader Eastside Catholic (by a combined four points).

The top four in Metro is important because those teams play in a separate tournament to vie for the league title. It also helps in seeding for districts. The three division winners — Eastside Catholic, Rainier Beach and Franklin — have all clinched spots in the top four.
