Both Brown B and Tufts B are listed as having won their last game against the other via forfeit, when I assume that at most one of them would have done so (unless, I suppose, they both left before their last game, though perhaps in that case it might have been better to put them both down for a loss).

That is, will a school from out of New England, which necessitates being outside of Massachusetts, receive both for a total of $25 off, or just the latter for $15 off?
