Strange call at end of half

Can anyone point me to the rule that would apply to the call at the end of the first half of the esks/risers game?

The one where the riders kicker got ran into but instead of running one more play at 0 time the half would end on a penalty, the team would decline the penalty and the yardage is applied to the opening kickoff of the second half.

i have never heard of that before i was always of the school that if you decline a penalty you dont get to take advantage later

I think (But don't quote me on it) Dead ball roughing penalties carry an option to be tacked onto the next quarter.

ro1313, where are you? You seem to know what the actual rules are.

That would make sense but roughing the kicker is not usually a deadball call because it happens while the play is ongoing. Unless i am wrong
