Sporting events were not immune to Mother Nature’s wrath Monday.

With two games already postponed because of road closures and poor driving conditions, a third game, played at Kea`au High School, had to be stopped because of a mid-game power outage.

Kea`au held a 16-9 lead over Pahoa at the start of the second quarter when the lights went out. According to Kea`au athletic director Iris McGuire, the game will resume on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. at the same site. Play will restart at the point of the outage.

Honoka`a High School athletic director Keith Tolentino told Big Island Now Tuesday that his school will travel to Laupahoehoe to play the 6:00 p.m. varsity contest. The game was initially postponed because of flooding and road conditions caused by the recent storm.
