How district seeding points are determined

The District VI playoffs are determined by a rankings formula set up by the PIAA.
The following is the chart used to calculate basic points for football. Points are awarded for a WIN only.

100 points for a Win over a Class AAAA school.
80 points for a Win over a Class AAA school.
60 points for a Win over a Class AA school.
40 points for a win over a Class A school.

Power Points
Each team picks up 10 points for every victory that a team they defeated earns.
(Example) In 2002, Bellwood-Antis defeated Tyrone. Tyrone went 6-3 in the regular season, so the Blue Devils picked up 60 points because they defeated Tyrone.
Tiebreakers
Ties are resolved as follows:
A. If the member school teams played each other during the regular season, the winner of the majority of those contests shall be ranked higher.
B. If tiebreaker A does not resolve the tie in the rankings, the won-loss records of the tied members school teams against common regular season opponents shall be used in breaking the tie in the rankings with 10 points being awarded for each win, five points for each tie and zero points for each loss.
