Mother Nature Takes Center Stage To Delay Metro Football
JOHNSTON, Iowa -- Football may be physical but mother nature proved to be violent. "The hair was up on my skin. My son went close to me because he was like wow," said Sarah Grady of Johnston. Lily Crouse, an eighth grader could relate. She said, "It started shaking the ground and I'm over here like oh geez, it's probably gonna get cancelled." Lily was close, severe weather and lightning forced the Johnston vs Indianola football game into a holding pattern Friday night in Johnston. Joe Nelson, the Johnston Community School District Athletic and Activities Director, made the decision saying, "The safety of the fans and students is our first priority so we will wait this out until it is safe for everybody."
