The biggest stat of Thursday night at Memorial Stadium? The number of lightning strikes.
A very loud thunderstorm over Columbus forced the postponement of Thursday’s game between Hardaway and Jordan until 10 a.m. Saturday at A.J. McClung Memorial Stadium.
The postponement leaves both teams winless on the season for two more days.
Hardaway is 0-2 after a 33-6 loss in East Point, Ga. on Aug. 23 at Tri-Cities and a narrow 22-19 loss last Friday in Cusseta against Chattahoochee County.
The Red Jackets remain 0-1 after a bye week following a narrow 29-27 loss against Columbus at Kinnett Stadium on Aug. 22.
Prior to Saturday morning’s makeup game, Memorial Stadium will play host to a marquee Class AAAAA matchup between Carver (2-0) and Creekside (1-1) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday night.
