Long lightning delay in Cascade-New Hampton first round game


Fans in New Hampton had to endure multiple delays for lightning in the 1st round playoff game between the homestanding Chickasaws and visiting Cascade.

Early on, Cascade capitalized on a couple of big plays to take a 9-0 lead including a safety and a 56-yard scoring strike from Tommie Kleitsch to Nathan Bergfeld.

But the Chickasaws would storm back, thanks to a scoring strike from Noah Stochl to Wyatt Rosonke.

Another score was set up on a long pass between the two Chickasaw stars.

As the clock expired for halftime, Stochl ran it in from the one to put the Chickasaws up 21-9.

That's when thunderstorms moved in, causing a lightning delay for nearly 3 hours.

The delays continued throughout the night and the game ended at 1:07 a.m. with New Hampton prevailing, 35-22.
