Mother Nature the big winner on HS football fields

Monsoon storms pushed through the Tucson area Friday night, wreaking havoc on several high school football games.

As a result, there will be an extra dose of football today.

Five local games will be resumed today — including the Oro Valley Super Bowl between Canyon del Oro and Ironwood Ridge — and another will be started from the beginning as lightning kept it from ever kicking off.

Flowing Wells will get the action started today when it resumes Friday night’s game against visiting Amphitheater at 8 a.m. The host Caballeros led 21-7 with 7:36 remaining in the second quarter when the game was suspended.
