Moving the chains?... Oneida fans believe they were cheated out of first down

By  | 

A video has surfaced on Twitter, which appears to show the first down marker being moved during a play in the Oneida vs. South Greene game this past Friday.

You can see the video on this page.

It was posted by Trace Sexton (@trace_sexton on Twitter).

Oneida lost the game, 23-21.

An article on the Oneida Independent Herald's website reads, in part:

"On fourth and one, Zach Couch carried the ball off right guard for a 1-yard gain to the 29-yard-line…first down, right? No. Video taken by an Oneida videographer in the press box clearly shows the South Greene chain crew moving the sticks as the play unfolded."
