We’re used to seeing instant replays from a handful of angles following a disputed call in a televised football game. But in the world of high school football, it’s rare you ever see an instant replay.

News-Review contributing photographer Daniel De Mato has given us that rare opportunity this week.

You could hear grumbles from the East Islip crowd Saturday when Riverhead wide receiver Dan Czelatka made a spectacular diving catch along the sideline in the end zone during the fourth quarter. The officials ruled it a touchdown.

De Mato’s photo shows Czelatka did, in fact, get a foot down in the end zone. Or did he?

You be the judge.
