According to the FIFA Laws of the Game, a team must have 7 players for a match to continue. As such, after 5 players are sent off, a team of 11 has logically dropped to an unsustainable number and the match must be abandoned.

The winner is not determined by the referee. There referee reports the number of goals scored for each team and the league or competition authority decides who the winner is based on this information.

It is entirely possible that if both teams had an excessive amount of misconduct that neither team would receive the win. I have seen this happen in local leagues.
