From the WHSAA Handbook:
a. Coin flip – Odd man or team will sit while the other two teams play.
b. Scenario 1 – Team A sits. Team B and Team C play a half. Team A plays the winner of Team B and Team C. If Team A beats the winner of the B and C half, the loser of the B and C half may challenge Team A only if the loser of the B and C half won the regular season game between Team A and themselves. Otherwise, Team A receives the highest remaining seed. The winner of Team B vs Team C play-in half receives the next highest remaining seed if applicable.
c. Scenario 2 – Team A sits. Team B and Team C play a half. Team B wins. Team A plays Team B and Team B wins. Team B receives the highest remaining seed. If the last seed is available, the winner of the regular season game between A and C would receive the last remaining seed.
If after 3 games, all 3 are 1-1 again, beating and losing to the same teams that they beat and lost to in the regular season, the WHSAA says the only option left if to coin flip to see which 2 teams go to states.
