A wet start to high school football

Rains hampered the start to regular season high school football Friday night some games were postponed but some were able to play.
Rain fell so hard at Clearwater Central Catholic in the first quarter Friday night that you could barely see the school logo over the stands. Torrential rains kept coming and the game was stopped for a rain and lightning delay with 8 minutes, 13 seconds remaining in the second quarter. Berkeley went into the delay leading 7-0.
