Teams listed W-L-T record reflects only games whose score
is listed on the Maine HS Scores page.
The program starts all teams with an equal arbitrary value and then
adjusts them all recursively based on game scores until the lowest cumulative
error between expected goal differentials and actual goal differentials is
The Total column is in goal units and the difference in this value between
any two teams is the predicted goal differential for a game played at a
neutral site between those two teams. It should be noted that due to goal
differential limits set in the ranking program these predicted goal differentials
are only accurate when comparing teams ranked within three goals of each other.
The differential between teams ranked farther apart becomes more and more
understated as the chosen teams become farther apart in the rankings.
A teams Total value only has meaning
in relation to other teams in the same list (i.e. Totals cannot be compared
from one week to the next or directly to a ratings list for another state).
Obviously, the fewer games a team's ranking is based upon the less likely
that ranking is to be accurate.
As of 1/8/05 games between teams that are ranked more than 5 goals apart are not used in calculating
either team's ranking.
