MUNSTER | Just like on Friday night, the storms rolling through Northwest Indiana postponed yet another sporting event.

The boys soccer match between Times No. 4 Munster and No. 5 Bishop Noll was called with the score tied 2-2 at the 14:52 mark in the first half after a 60-minute weather delay.

The teams will make up the game on either Wednesday or Thursday of this week.

The caveat, however, is that, per Indiana High School Athletic Association rules, Saturday's match officially didn't even happen because it did not last an entire half. When the teams meet again, the match will start at 0-0 under a full 80-minute clock.

However, the mythical game did not go without some fireworks.

After dribbling for a few yards, junior midfielder Alex Avalos netted Noll's first goal when he shot towards the high right side over the outstretched arms of Munster keeper Xavier Hofferth in the 13th minute.

Just one minute later, the Mustangs got their first goal of the season when they drew Noll keeper Jonathan Lozano out of the box, Nik Kajmakoski passed to Peter Panos, and he skied one over Lozano for the easy open goal.

Just five minutes later in the 19th minute, Noll tallied its second goal when freshman Alejandro Hernandez booted a free kick from about 45 yards out that Hofferth and the defense misplayed, as the ball bounced over his head and into the net.

The wind shifted and the sky turned black, which is when Munster, knowing the game might get called at any moment, turned up the pace offensively, getting three shots on goal within a span of six minutes.

One of those shots connected because in the 26th minute Noll was flagged for a handball just outside its own goalie box and Demetri Georgalas promptly scored on the ensuing free kick.

A mere 10 minutes later, the match was halted due to lightning and not resumed.
