WPIAL Class A roundup: Shenango-Rochester game suspended
Saturday, October 24, 2020 | 12:44 AM
Two of the top teams in WPIAL Class A kicked off a Big Seven finale Friday night.
On Saturday, they’ll get to finish it.
This game was originally delayed early on by police activity near the stadium, which forced officials to evacuate fans and send players to the locker room. Then, after the game resumed, it was later suspended by lightning.
The game will resume at noon Saturday.
