Severe Weather Friday Means More High School Football Saturday

De Smet, Parkway North and Priory among those teams impacted by rain, hail and thunderstorms Friday night.

"You can't fool Mother Nature," one high school football official said Friday evening. "Mother Nature's in control."

That unnamed official was speaking not from the sidelines of Friday's John Burroughs-St Louis matchup, but from the confines of the Science Building of the Burroughs campus, minutes after severe weather suspended the game at 5:15 p.m. The Bombers were up on the Rebels 35-0 in the second quarter, thanks to 3 TDs by Ezekiel Elliott


The game will resume Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

Many games which were supposed to kick off later Friday at 7 p.m. never began.

Parkway Central waited out the weather and started after 8 p.m. The Colts' homecoming tilt against Seckman sent everyone home happy, albeit a little late, by a score of 49-7. 

Here's Saturday's new-look schedule, complicated by having to arrange officiating crews in some cases, and in other cases waiting until after ACT testing for students:

  • vs. Rockwood Summit at Parkway North, 12 p.m.
  • vs. Ft. Zumwalt West at Chaminade, 3 p.m.
  • vs. Vianney at De Smet, 4 p.m.
  • was already scheduled to play McCluer South at Berkeley, at 2 p.m.
  • was already scheduled to play at Hazelwood East at 1 p.m.
