Judge upholds suspension of Wayne Hills students

A judge has upheld today the suspension of nine football players from Wayne Hills High School accused of beating two teenagers from a rival school back in October.

The players will not be allowed to participate in this weekend's High School Football Championship game.

The players appeared before a judge this afternoon in Newark asking for an injunction after being barred from playing by the Passaic Public Schools Administration.
