Century League officials Friday suspended Canyon football Coach Bob Hughes for two games for his actions during a game against Santa Ana Valley last week, but they refused to overturn Canyon's victory.
Santa Ana Valley officials had protested the game, which ended in controversy.
The Falcons trailed, 21-17, with 11 seconds left. Canyon's Greg Jacobs intercepted a pass, then began celebrating but was never tackled. Santa Ana Valley Athletic Director Leon Smith said Jacobs threw down the ball and the Falcons' Tyson Lewis tried to recover it. Hughes then came onto the field and grabbed the ball, which was in turn taken from him by Lewis, who began running to the end zone.
