Mini Crossword Game scoring

I am wondering about the scoring on the mini crossword game.  When I make no mistakes and finish quickly, my score is low.  When I make mistakes and take longer my score is higher.  That makes me think that the lower the score the better.  Why, then, are the standings listing the highest scores first?  Unless I have the scoring system wrong?  I can't find scoring information so does anyone else notice this on this game or have input to why it seems that the lower score is the "better" score?
