Friday night games moved to Thursday; Chiefs shut out, Salem game cancelled

Friday night football games were moved ahead in this area of Mississippi due to the threat of Hurricane Delta in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Salem-Lumberton game was bumped ahead but heavy rains and the threat of lightning caused school officials to cancel the game.
Meantime, Tylertown’s Chiefs went ahead with their game against Seminary, although the game was postponed for over an hour-and-a-half while heavy rain peppered the field.
The schools had to delay the game’s start because of the Mississippi High School Activities Assn. rule requiring a half-hour wait following a lightning strike.
Once play got underway the Seminary Bulldogs managed to spoil an already soggy homecoming for THS, shutting down the Chiefs 21-0.
The rain and fumbles affected both teams, but Seminary managed to hold onto the ball when it counted, scoring twice in the first half and once toward the end of the game for the win.
THS was hit with penalties, including several personal foul calls toward the end of the game, resulting in one Chief being removed from the game.
