Status of Thursday’s suspended football games
Thursday night, a few football games around the area were suspended due to the lightning storm.
According to WIAA rules, if lightning strikes within a certain vicinity, the game must be delayed 30 minutes before resuming. In at least three games in the Puget Sound area, those games didn’t pick back up.
So, here’s what’s happening:
In the Gig Harbor vs. O’Dea game at West Seattle Stadium, the game was suspended at halftime with O’Dea leading 35-7. According to O’Dea’s head coach Monte Kohler, this game has been called, is no longer suspended and counts as an O’Dea victory.
According to other Times preps reporter Sandy Ringer:
Two other area games were suspended Thursday because of lightning and both will be resumed Saturday at 7 p.m. with free admission.
At Federal Way Memorial Stadium, Wilson of Tacoma leads Decatur, 12-7, with 2:11 left in the first half. When play resumes, the Gators will have the ball on the Wilson 10-yard line.
In an SPSL 4A South Division game at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup, Curtis is up 23-0 on Emerald Ridge at the half.
