For the second time in three weeks, football in Central Indiana was affected by lightning Friday, with all four Hancock County games moved back to today.

Two weeks ago, Eastern Hancock’s home game against Milan was called off after the first quarter and resumed the following day. Friday, none of the local games, which included three Homecomings, got a chance to start:

>> In the only non-Homecoming action, New Palestine’s home game against Yorktown was postponed to today at 3 p.m.

>> Eastern Hancock will take on visiting North Decatur today at 6 p.m. EH athletic director Aaron Spaulding said a king and queen will be crowned, but there will be no after-game dance. Spaulding also there there will “probably” not be any floats.

>> Greenfield-Central will host Rushville at 6 p.m. with Homecoming celebration going on as planned. Senior Night athletes will be honored at 5:30 p.m.

>> Mt. Vernon will host Shelbyville at 6 p.m. today with normal Homecoming festivities. The dance will take place from 8:30-10:30 p.m.

>> Around the HHC, in a game that began at 10 p.m. and ended at 12:15 a.m., Pendleton Heights defeated Delta 24-14.
