With the weather forecast for rain throughout the day, Highland Park ISD has moved up the start time for the football game tonight against Mesquite to 7 p.m. at Highlander Stadium.
Apparently the district wants to allow extra time for lightning delays if they become necessary, in order to finish the game before midnight. Of course, if there are no delays, then the game theoretically will finish 30 minutes earlier than normal, which is fine, too.
If the game is suspended and can’t be completed tonight because of weather, it will resume tomorrow at 2 p.m. at whatever point it leaves off. Look for our more detailed preview of the matchup against the Skeeters later today.
