To clarify, your match lights stay on and change as you play the game? There's not a lot going on with those lights:

The switch on the X/Game Over relay is a likely reason they might stay on as mentioned above. Even though it may be gapped correctly, the solder tabs or something else may be shorting it closed.
Since this happened after you disassembled the Match Unit, it's also possible that you've introduced a short that defeats the X/Game Over relay switch. If you unplug the jones plug that enables the Match feature do the lights stay on? That might give you a better idea of where the problem is.
