Rain, lightning postpones Friday games
Rain in the Catawba County area forced several postponements of Friday night high school football games.
The first cancelled contest was a match-up of unbeaten teams between the Bandys Trojans (2-0) and East Lincoln Mustangs (2-0), which also features coach Randy Lowman’s 300th game as head coach. The game was postponed to Saturday at 7 p.m. due to power issues at the field.
Weather postponed three other area games, including St. Stephens at Newton-Conover, Hickory at Maiden and Bunker Hill at North Lincoln. The Indians and Red Devils play at Gurley Stadium in Newton on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. The Red Tornadoes and Blue Devils play at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
One game was schedule 10 a.m. The Bunker Hill Bears try to go 3-0 against winless North Lincoln.
