Ties in standings were broken by head-to-head record. The first place team from each division played versus the second place team in the other division. The semifinal losers then played a third place game, with the winner earning third place and the loser receiving fourth place. The semifinal winners play in the finals, with the winner earning first place and the loser receiving second place. While the event was not an official Olympic event, the top three teams received medals.
