The Floyd Central Highlanders had a chance to win the game with two seconds left in the game. They had the ball and threw a pass towards the end zone, but the pass fell incomplete and Floyd fell to home standing Bedford-North Lawrence 36-32 in the semifinals of Class 5A Sectional 8 Friday night. Floyd Central had started their last drive of the game with a little over a minute left, and an apparent 63 yard touchdown by Bramble was nullified by a blocking penalty.
