Time was ticking away.
Sebastopol and Melton were locked together deep into time-on in a Ballarat Football League clash at Marty Busch Reserve.
There was a strong possibility any score would be enough to get the win.
So when Melton's leading goalkicker Braedan Kight lined up from just inside his range on a slight angle on 27 minutes, the Bloods appeared on the verge on taking the lead for the first time for the day, and possibly stealing a crucial win.
The kick went to the right and just as it appeared set to sail through for a behind, the Burra's Luke Kiel lurched forward and punched the ball clear.
There was no call from the goal umpire.
In his view the football had not completely cleared the goal line, which it must do for a score to be recorded.
And there was no response from players.
Nearby Melton supporters at the clubrooms end of the the ground were not so sure the right call had been made though
It was tight.
Had they been denied?
Minutes later a video of the moment taken by a Melton supporter with a mobile phone emerged and the Bloods faithful were convinced they had been denied a behind and possibly a win.
It was certainly a major talking point in the Melton camp post-match.
There is no question that Kiel comes from behind the goal line before leaping and fisting the ball forward.
The angle of the footage though means a goal post obscures the point of contact.
However, there is no shortage of Bloods fans that the video is compelling evidence and believe it was a behind.
The call was not the last act of the game.
Sebastopol had time to score the winning behind.
And when the final siren did go, Melton had forced the football back within a kick of its goals again.
So who knows what course play would have taken even if Melton had been awarded a behind.
What's your decision?
