Default Ended or Suspended

LL Majors, 11:00 PM curfew: Home team up 3 to 1 in the bottom of the 4th. One out, 1-1 count on B2 and lightning suspended play. At 10:20, with lightning still in the sky, the umpires suspended the game because, even if the game was resumed, there would not be enough time to finish it.

Why wouldn't the game be ended. It is a regulation game and weather was the reason it was called. It was never resumed, therefore, regardless of the curfew it was called due to weather. The game should be ended. Thoughts?

Game Terminated
LL Tournament Rule.
13.b
Regulation games (when a winner can be determined) terminated because of weather, darkness or curfew, must NOT be resumed. This does not mean games suspended or delayed by weather that may stll be resumed before darkness or curfew on the same day.

So no they can not resume the game and the HT is the winner.

It is also not the umpires decision to suspend or terminate that game in LL tournament play.
That is what the Tournament Director is there for.
If there was a question on that matter they should have immediately placed a call to the Regional HQ to settle it immediately.
