FLOSSMOOR | The much-anticipated opening night game between Simeon and Homewood-Flossmoor will be played at 7 p.m. today thanks to the thunderstorms that rolled through the area early and stayed late on Friday.
The game is at night largely because officials were already scheduled for games elsewhere in the afternoon.
The original schedule was disrupted at 6:19 p.m., when the sophomore game between the Wolverines and Vikings was stopped when lightning was detected to the north.
Simeon's 12-6 lead in the sophomore contest became the margin of victory when the game, halted with 9:25 left in the third quarter, was not resumed.
Because of the schedule revision, today's H-F junior varsity football game at Lockport is canceled.
