Calculations for OUA Playoff Seeding

For the 2019-20 season, with the introduction of three divisions, the OUA playoff seeding is as follows:
  1. Top 3 teams in each division, plus next best 3 teams qualify for the playoffs
  2. Division leaders are seeded 1, 2 and 3 and the remaining 9 teams are seeded by winning percentage
  3. OUA tie-breaking rules in effect for any ties
I will update this program as different tie-breaking scenarios develop over the next few weeks. At various times, you might see the message 'Tie breaking rules not yet complete'. Either the situation involves non-playoff teams, or I have not yet determined how to evaluate the rules.

Figure out tie breaker for teams = Ryerson,Laurentian,Western
All teams will have the same number of league wins at season end in order to be tied (so I will not bother to calculate now)
Head-to-head records: Ryerson: 2-0 Laurentian: 1-1 Western: 0-2
Order of teams is: Ryerson, Laurentian, Western

Figure out tie breaker for teams = Brock,McMaster
Same number of league wins
McMaster has advantage on head-to-head wins

Figure out tie breaker for teams = Windsor,Wilfrid Laurier
Same number of league wins
Wilfrid Laurier has advantage on head-to-head wins

Figure out tie breaker for teams = Toronto,Waterloo
Same number of league wins
Waterloo has advantage on head-to-head wins
