# Is 9.3.9 clear to you?

9.3.9 says
“The scoring system will keep track of the highest match score earned by each team during the
qualification matches but this score will not be displayed.”

Let’s assume Red scores 35-25=10 and Blue scores 20-5=15.

Is the “match score” for Red 35 or 10? Is there an unambiguous definition of “match” score? Where?

Thanks,

According to 9.3.5:

[LEFT][FONT=Arial-BoldMT]9.3.5 Match Ranking Points[/FONT]
[FONT=ArialMT]All teams on the winning ALLIANCE will receive a number of ranking points equal to the unpenalized score (the score without any assessed penalties) of the losing ALLIANCE.
All teams on the losing ALLIANCE will receive a number of ranking points equal to their final
score (with any assessed penalties).
In the case of a tie, all participating teams will receive a number of ranking points equal to their ALLIANCE score (with any assessed penalties).[/LEFT]

So to answer your question, Red Match Score = 10, and Blue Match Score = 35

9.3.5 says Match Ranking Points, not Match Score, like Kenny was asking. The real question is whether those are the same or not.
