Rain cancels many local football games

Posted: Updated:

Many Eastern Iowa high school football games were canceled Friday night due to rain.

At the Jesup-Denver game, our crew arrived with high hopes to see some football action.

Many students and spectators were excited about the game,

"It'll be fun no matter what in the student section," said Alison Brown, a student.

"I'm from California, this is great weather,"said one spectator.

But before the game could start, the weather got worse.

Disappointed football fans on both sides packed up their bags and headed back to their cars, sad they couldn't kick off the first Friday night with a kick off.

"I don't like the puddle in my shoes," said one spectator.

A sad Friday for everyone, but many hope the rain will bring a little good luck for the season.
