PRINCETON —There’s just something about Princeton and Morrison football games. They just can’t beat the weather on Friday nights.

For the second season in a row, the Tigers and Mustangs saw their game set back by the weather. After having the sophomore game halted at halftime and numerous delays for lightning, Friday’s varsity game was rescheduled for Saturday. Kickoff will be at 5 p.m. at Bryant Field.

Game officials tried to get the game in. Mother Nature was not cooperating.

The sophomore game was called at halftime with the PHS Kittens winning 6-0.

The start of the varsity game was delayed and seemingly each time the mandatory 30-minute waiting time was winding down, another flash of lightning forced another waiting period. Finally, at 8:10 p.m., the game was officially called.

Last year the teams faced a similar fate at Morrison staying past the 10 o’clock hour untilthe game was pushed back to the next day. Morrison won that game 46-0.

There will be free admission Saturday at Bryant Field.
