That's easy. The ref was going to call the boarding initially. When they realized what happened, they knew they couldn't just call that but they didn't have the guts to make the right call which was 2-2-2-5-10 so they copped out and did 2-2-5 and just tacked on an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. So they essentially said we know he instigated but aren't going to actually call it due to what would happen if they did.
