The Forest City Indians Softball team traveled to Humboldt last night to take on the #2 team in Class 3A.
With storms loaming, the Indians and Wildcats played an inning and ⅔ before play was halted due to lightning. Following a nearly one hour and 15 minute delay, play resumed again. Just two batters later, more lightning. Two hours and 12 minutes after the first pitch and just one complete inning into the game, the two teams decided to stop play. The game will be scored as a no-game and stats from the only inning played will not be recorded. Forest City 1-1 1-0 will play again tonight against North Union.
