NIRSA Flag Football UC on try after Ready for Play Whistle

In an on-campus intramural game tonight, a team committed an unsportstmanlike conduct penalty on a try after the touchdown after the ready for play whistle but before the snap. I don't have a copy of the rule book in front of me (away at college and no longer officiating because my TAship won't let me have another job and keep the tuition waiver, so I didn't bring my rule book from undergrad), but the closest thing I could find in an adaptation is on http://dcalum.org/s/20/resources/Spo...ll%20Rules.pdf (claims to be adapted from NIRSA, which our campus uses), and I'm looking at rule 10 articles 7&8. It would seem that article 7 would not apply since the ready for play signal had already been blown, and article 8 would not apply since it was not during a successful try. Can anyone shed some light on this? I'd also appreciate other, non-flag rulings like NFHS for this situation as it'll help me grow as a ref, and I'm planning to get into HS/Jr. High next fall after I graduate here.

Edit: Team A scored TD, UC on Team B

Edit 2: Was handled on field by being enforced on ensuing "kickoff"/possession (Normally team B starts with ball on 14, so team A chose to have team B start on 7 instead of enforcing on the try).

I'm confused on the sequence of events...could you spell out the play specifically and the order of the events?

A scores touchdown.

Ref places ball for the try and blows ready for play whistle.

B1 says something to official.

Official blows play dead and throws UC penalty.

My question comes here: Team A was given the option to enforce on either the try (half the distance to the goal) or the ensuing possession. Should team A even be given this option, or should it only be enforceable on the try?

Since the RFP was blown, you would enforce half the distance on the try.

10-3-7 spells this out.
