    In games with digital timers, you must have a measurable fraction of a second remaining when mate is delivered.  OTB, the tie goes to the checkmate, but online everything is digitally precise. 

    Notice that your ...Qc1-c5# move is NOT shown on the digital score, which indicates you didn't complete the move before your clock went 0:00, so you lost on time.
