Lighting strike blocks high school's home games

OTISVILLE, Mich. (AP) - A lightning strike at a Michigan high school football stadium forced the final home games of the season to be played on the road. The Flint Journal reports officials at LakeVille High School in Otisville found out when they went to flip on the lights for a freshman football game Oct. 8. They determined that the stadium's power source was hit by lightning sometime after the Oct. 4 homecoming game. Drew Johnson, LakeVille varsity football coach, says it was "purely bad luck." Custom-made parts costing more than $40,000 won't be ready until November, so the team played the last two home games of the season on the road. At Genesee High School on Friday, LakeVille held its traditional parents' night ceremony for senior players on the roster.
