Football: Another crazy ending via laterals

Everyone remembers the 1982 California-Stanford football game that ended with a bunch of laterals and Stanford's band on the field.

Well, there was a high school football game in Kentucky that had another crazy ending with 1.8 seconds left.

Take a look here.

Crazy play. Too bad the officials let things get out of hand. Both teams had players on the field during the play. Then when the team scored the touchdown, you can see two players hanging on the field goal crossbar. There should have been two personal fouls called on that play. (Do the coaches have no control?)

Basically the play should have been nullified and replayed for players being on the field from both teams. At the very least, the two point conversion should have been taken 30 yards back.

Officials have a thankless job. I do not envy them with the snap decisions they have to make. They have a very difficult job and they do not get enough credit for the fantastic job they do overall.
But in my judgment, they blew it on this one.
