GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The 14-14 halftime tie stayed intact until the final six seconds of the game.
That was when junior kicker Alen Ahmenovic kicked a 23-yard field goal to lead the New Oxford Colonials past the Greencastle Blue Devils 17-14 on Friday night in a Pennsylvania high school football game.
"First of all, that was a great high school football game," New Oxford coach Gerard Lawrence said. "Our soccer player put it through for us. He has got a good, strong leg. I am proud of my kids for finding a way to get a win in the final seconds."
Lawrence said that Ahmenovic plays four high school sports: football, soccer, basketball and volleyball.
New Oxford quarterback Tom O'Brien had just completed a 38-yard pass to Jesus Banda to give the Colonials a first down at the Blue Devils' 10-yard line. After O'Brien threw an incomplete pass on first down, there were only six seconds remaining in the game. Ahmenovic, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 230 pounds, then kicked the game-winner for New Oxford (1-2).
