High schools around North Texas are making alternative plans for their football games with more rain in the forecast for Friday.
Many games had to be canceled last week. Teams can play in the rain, but the game has to stop when there is lightning.
"They have to keep it safe for everyone to get everybody off the metal bleachers in case of lighting,” said Michelle Smith, a fan who was forced to take shelter during last week's game between Keller and Denton Ryan. “Better to be safe than sorry.”
For this week, all games in District 6 and 10 in Class 6A have been moved to Thursday instead of Friday.
Some other games times that have been rescheduled include:
The Indian varsity game against Kennedale was moved to 4 p.m. Saturday at Charles Head Stadium.
Arlington HS v. Martin, varsity @ UTA has been moved to Thursday at 7 p.m.
Sam Houston v. North Crowley, varsity @ Wilemon has been moved to Thursday at 7 p.m.
