The noise hindrance rule is intended to stop a player from talking or


making sounds while his opponent is about to hit the ball. Based on your description he must have heard you say "Oh no that's bad" so that is probably why the coaches and I assume your coach agreed and gave him the point.

If it was a sitter and he just missed it, few guys would call hindrance, but this was critical point in a D3 match and he knew he needed the point and this was the way to get it. Hopefully it did not cost your team the match, but at least you have now learned to be quiet when your opponent is about to hit any ball.
