A Connecticut high school football coach was suspended yesterday for one game after he used an opponent’s play card in a game last month. Southington High School head coach D.J. Hernandez used the list of coded plays written on an armband lost by a Manchester High School player. Game film confirmed the accusations, and both schools are working on an appropriate resolution to the issue.

The Utah Jazz stunned the entire state of Florida last night with a 116-114 overtime win over the Miami Heat. Utah rallied from a 22-point deficit to tie the game in the final seconds of the fourth quarter.
