COLFAX - Lightning and heavy rain forced the cancellation of the Ellsworth-Colfax prep football game Friday at Bjurquist Field.

The game got underway but was immediately delayed due to lightning. WIAA rules state any game stopped by lightning must be delayed 30 minutes until such lightning is gone from the area. Several other weather delays followed until it was decided by Ellsworth and Colfax coaches and officials to call the game off entirely.
