You said he couldn't do it again in 50 tries...

He did it two consecutive times against us. You say that onside kicks are recovered 20% of the time, but lots of great bounces are still recovered by the return team. Many of those onside kicks are from kickers not as skilled as that kid. I may have been exaggerating a little with 80% but I'd guess about 50% of the time compared to your thought that he couldn't do it again in 50 tries. They weren't the same kick but were close. As someone who never played soccer, I'm amazed at kids repeatedly kicking amazing onside kicks, but some kids can do it.

Not a big deal in the end. Just wanted to let you know that good kickers can do it repeatedly.
