PF = points for, PA = points against

After Win-Loss record, the tiebreaker in the standings is point differential, aka +/-. For example, currently the Chicks Ahoy! and Smoke City Bandits have identical Win-Loss records, but the Chicks Ahoy! own a superior point differential, in fact, even better than that of the first-place Death Track Dolls. If the Chicks win this weekend and the Dolls lose, that advantage could bump the Chicks into first, depending on the point spreads this week. Similarly, should the Gore-Gore Rollergirls beat the Chicks, and if the Dolls beat the Bandits, there would be a three-way tie for second, sorted out by point spreads. There’s going to be a lot of math this weekend!
