calling a game in the 5th for a school event

Last night, our LL Majors game was called before starting the 5th inning due to several of the opposing teams' players having to leave for a band concert event. They were up 7-2. The umpires called the game and the officials/board of directors have no intention of either deeming it a forfeit or requiring the game to be finished at another time since we've been told that 4 1/2 innings played makes a game. Using this logic, potentially any team ahead in runs could just walk away from a game in the 5th inning and "win".
I'm curious to know how others feel about how this was handled. Our players and spectators were extremely disappointed..especially since we were starting to shut them down and had the potential to come back which is exactly what we did the last time we played this team and went into extra innings.:)

In this instance, the game should have ended when it did, due to a lack of 9 players. although, the right thing to do would have been to finish the game at another tome, even though it is not required.
