A fifth and deciding game had to be played on Sunday late afternoon in which, both teams played an incredible battle. After five ends, Team Wauters had the lead by 7-2 , but could not avoid the final rush of Team Benoy (2 ends with 3 points).
After some 10 hours of competition, Team Benoy won the Luxembourg Curling Team Championship 2017/18 with 8-7 in the 5th game.
