Lightning halted high school football games in the East Bay last Friday night, necessitating their rescheduling the next day.
"When thunder is heard, or a cloud-to-ground lightning bolt is seen, the thunderstorm is close enough to strike your location with lightning. Suspend play and take shelter immediately," read the guidelines of the National Federal of State High School Associations. Thirty minutes must pass without any lightning for play to resume.
Amador Valley had scored two touchdowns at home against Concord High when play was suspended Friday night at a score of 14-0. When they resumed play at 3 p.m. the next day, the Minutemen scored two touchdowns but didn't make their attempts at 2-point conversions, for a final score of 14-12.
Foothill High prevailed over Novato, 26-16, at a non-conference game.
