Need ruling on 3rd-World play

Rule set:  Any level where blocked extra points can be returned by a non-kicking team for point(s).


Team A scores a tying TD as the 4th Qtr clock expires.  With no time on the clock a game winning P.A.T. is attempted and blocked by Team B.


Team B returns the blocked kick, in what looks like a would-be score / conversion.  However, the kicking team tackles Team B's return man by the facemask 5 yards short of crossing the goal line.  He is flagged.


What next??

    Re: Need ruling on 3rd-World play

    As a baseball umpire, I do like to check on other sports' rules.  So here is my take.


    I base my judgement on a play where the Redskins got a turnover at the end of the game and were similarly fouled.  They got a play to beat the Cowboys!


    OK, here goes.


    When Team A's PAT is blocked and Team B recovers to advance, Team A is now on defense.


    As they tackle player B illegally, the half CANNOT end on a defensive penalty.


    Team B gets one play from scrimage on an untimed down at the ultimate point of enforcement of the penalty.


    That's my guess!
