The series of strong fall storms moving through Western Washington have made and impact on the Week 7 schedule in Whatcom County high school football.
The 1A Northwest Conference games featuring Meridian at Lynden Christian and Mount Baker at Nooksack Valley on Friday, Oct. 14, have been postponed. Both games have been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17.
Lummi’s Northwest Football League 1B game at Crescent, originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15, also has been postponed.
The Meridian-LC game was postponed because of a power outage at Lynden Christian, according to Lyncs athletic director Brenda Terpstra, who said power went out at the school at about 2:30 p.m. Friday and had not returned as of 3:30 p.m. She said outages hit different parts of Lynden.
Nooksack Valley athletic director Tom Harmon said he was “worried about the same thing” happening in Everson, but it was a drive around the area, where he saw downed tress, that persuaded him to reschedule the game.
“We didn’t want to have anybody out on the roads, especially coming from Mount Baker, and put them in that kind of danger,” Harmon said.
Lummi’s game has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at Port Angeles High School.
