The team with the most roll-off points will be declared the champion. If a tie still exists then handicap pins for the roll-off will decide the champion. A drawing will be held of available pair of lanes to decide starting lanes for the roll-off. Pairs that either team has used that night will not be considered in the drawing.
Averages for the roll-off: If a bowler has any pin difference in average from a period won by the team and the final average for the league, the bowler will use the higher average of the two.
