Answered: Match affecting?

I was at a competition in the final, and the opposing team had their anti tips touching out tiles past the neutral zone at the end of a match. This was ruled match effecting because it was in the finals, even though it did not effect anything score wise. They were disqualified, is this ruling correct?

Without seeing the entire Match it is impossible for us to know if the violation was Match affecting. As such we cannot issue any sort of blanket ruling.
