If by the end of the time no team scored 5 points, the team with most points will win the game, if they're still tied, a tie will be called. In playourffs, there's no time limit, the game goes until someone scores 5.
10. Games use a ref crew to run the games, they can call penalties when they see them, or review the calls in a vote system if there's no video. The crew is composed of:

- 10-2. Time Keeper - Run the clock during the game, stopping it for incs, turnovers, out of bounds, timeouts, among others (NFL). Call delay 10 seconds after the call is made (and mat is moved), counting down from 20 to 0 (20,15,10,5,0).
