Then North Oldham did an onsides kick instead of a squib kick to kill the clock. This gave the winning team (Owensboro) time for the winning TD pass. Better situation woud have been to let the clock run down to about 3 seconds to attempt the FG. But hindsight is 20/20 and this is HS, not college or the NFL.

Owensboro has now earned the rights to play Fort Thomas Highlands in the state Class 4A finals.
Not sure of the timeout situation, but stopping it at 10 could have allowed another timeout in the case of a botched snap for another try.
