Do tournament games count as a tie if a team wins past 5 minutes of overtime?

In tournaments where there must be a game winner, the organizers can choose to play full overtimes until there is a winner or have a shootout after 5 minutes of overtime.

If full 20 minute overtime periods are played, the winning team gets the win and the losing team gets the loss, regardless of how long it takes.

If the game ends with a shootout after 5 minutes of overtime cannot decide a winner, it is counted as a tie for both teams, regardless of what happens in the shootout.
