Link would not open, care to give a brief explanation.
The NCHSAA is committed to sportsmanship as a point of emphasis and a strategy for fair play. Officials must be prepared to recognize fouls and enforce them properly. The following guidelines will help officials make proper decisions regarding unsporting acts.
A - Do not be overly technical in applying unsporting penalties
B - Do allow for brief, spontaneous, emotional reactions at the end of a play
C - Beyond brief and spontaneous displays of energy, officials must flag acts that are clearly prolonged, self--congratulatory, self--glorifying, excessive, demeaning and taunting to opponents, and/or that make a mockery of the game
The following list is intended to assist officials with making their decision regarding the legality or illegality of player actions. It is not possible to comprehensively be exact in writing what should and should not be called/allowed. Remember, the key is judgment and that’s what good officials have.
- Cross the goal line and point to the sky
- Cross the goal line and pray for a short time
- Diving directly towards the pylon when pursued by defender

My guess is the ref tossed him over the bolded & underlined part.
