ET and Penalties
In the event of the score being level after the stipulated playing time has been completed, the result of the tie will be decided by the taking of kicks from the penalty mark. Extra time should not be played. This is a temporary change to the rules which has been made in light of the ongoing challenges around securing match venues, and extending let times.
