Thunderstorms force some high schools to cancel games

By WBRC staff

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Strong thunderstorms forced several high schools to cancel their football games Friday night.

FOX6 Sports says games between Vestavia Hills and Pelham, Carver and Woodlawn, and Pleasant Grove and John Carroll were cancelled Friday night.  No announcement was immediately made about if or when those games would be made up.

The storms also forced games to be delayed in Trussville and Oneonta, and officials called the Fairfield vs. Brookwood early with Fairfield winning 28-0.

A line of strong thunderstorms slowly moved across central and west Alabama Friday night, creating lots of lighting and dumping up to two inches of rain in some places west of Birmingham. The National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings Friday evening for Tuscaloosa, Fayette, Winston, Marion and Lamar counties.
