North Warrnambool Eagles player Adam Wines has been suspended for two weeks.
The swingman fronted the Hampden Football Netball League independent tribunal on Monday night.
He was found guilty of striking in the club's round four match against the Hamilton Kangaroos.
Tribunal secretary Peter Martin said the initial penalty of two weeks handed down by the match review panel was upheld.
That sanction was determined after Hamilton sought a review.
"The tribunal reviewed all the evidence and found him guilty," Martin said.
"The two week suspension has been upheld."
Wines, 29, played his 200th game for the Eagles against Koroit on April 9.
North Warrnambool Eagles sit fourth on the Hampden league ladder ahead of its match against Portland away on Saturday.
The Eagles defeated the Kangaroos 19.14 (128) to 6.9 (45) at home in their previous match a fortnight ago.
Portland is second on the ladder after notching up four straight wins.
