If no one wins the game within the time limit they look at points scored. If a tie they continue to fight sudden death to first point scored. If still a draw judges decide.
That's the basic gist of it.
I realize its not easy, I was being a d!ck.
But yeah, every time I watch, it seems that its always 0-0 for so damn long, and when they do get a point, I never really got it.
