Exclamation hitTest timer stop

well im making this maze for school and i was wondering if any of the more experienced coders out there could help me with it

here is the code for the timer

//initial variables
var timing:Boolean = false;
var paused:Boolean = false;
var remaining:Number;
var elapsedTime:Number;
var elapsedHours: Number;
var elapsedM:Number;
var elapsedS:Number;
var elapsedH:Number;
var startTime:Number;
var remaining:Number;
var hours:String;
var minutes:String;
var seconds:String;
var hundredths:String;

_root.play_btn.onPress = function() {
	if(!_root.timing) {
		if (_root.paused) {
			_root.startTime = getTimer() - _root.elapsedTime;
		} else {
			_root.startTime = getTimer();
		//start timer
		_root.paused = false;
		_root.timing = true;

if (_root.end.hitTest(_x, getBounds(_root).yMax, true)) {
            _root.timing = false;
			_root.paused = true;

_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
	if (timing) {
		//calculate values
		elapsedTime = getTimer()-startTime;
		elapsedHours = Math.floor(elapsedTime/3600000);
		remaining = elapsedTime-(elapsedHours*3600000);
		elapsedM = Math.floor(remaining/60000);
		remaining = remaining-(elapsedM*60000);
		elapsedS = Math.floor(remaining/1000);
		remaining = remaining-(elapsedS*1000);
		elapsedH = Math.floor(remaining/10);
		//output to text box
		//add a 0 on the front of the numbers if the number is less than 10
		if (elapsedHours<10) {
			hours = "0"+elapsedHours.toString();
		} else {
			hours = elapsedHours.toString();
		if (elapsedM<10) {
			minutes = "0"+elapsedM.toString();
		} else {
			minutes = elapsedM.toString();
		if (elapsedS<10) {
			seconds = "0"+elapsedS.toString();
		} else {
			seconds = elapsedS.toString();
		if (elapsedH<10) {
			hundredths = "0"+elapsedH.toString();
		} else {
			hundredths = elapsedH.toString();
		_root.timer_txt = hours+":"+minutes+":"+seconds+":"+hundredths;
