Severe Weather Friday Means More High School Football Saturday
Summit and Northwest among those teams impacted by rain, hail and thunderstorms Friday night.
"You can't fool Mother Nature," one high school football official said Friday evening. "Mother Nature's in control."
That unnamed official was speaking not from the sidelines of Friday's John Burroughs-St Louis Priory matchup, but from the confines of the Science Building of the Burroughs campus, minutes after severe weather suspended the game at 5:15 p.m.
Many games which were supposed to kick off later Friday at 7 p.m. never began.
Parkway Central waited out the weather and started after 8 p.m. The Colts' homecoming tilt against Seckman sent everyone home happy, albeit a little late, by a score of 49-7.
Here's part of Saturday's new-look schedule, complicated by having to arrange officiating crews in some cases, and in other cases waiting until after ACT testing for students:
- Parkway North vs. Rockwood Summit at Parkway North, 12 p.m.
- Northwest at Fox, 7 p.m.
- Eureka at Mehlville, 6 p.m. Saturday
