Threat of wet weather forces high schools to adjust Friday night game times

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Mother Nature is making high school football a challenge so far this season.

A number of schools have moved up their games scheduled for Friday night because of the chance of storms. The first two weeks of the season in Missouri have seen wet conditions for the Friday night lights.

Harrisonville head coach Brent Maxwell says his players will be ready when they face Platte County in our FOX 4 Game of the Week.

“It’s one of those things you can’t control. You know, we talk to our kids about that all the time. We are going to control the things that we can and unfortunately weather is not one of those. Both teams are going to play in it. And really it will be who can take care of the football type thing,” he said.

The Harrisonville at Platte County game is scheduled for Friday night at seven, but district officials say they will make a final decision based on the weather forecast by noon on Friday.
