Mother Nature stepped in and caused the suspension of dozens of high school football games throughout western Ohio on Friday because of numerous lightning sitings.

The Wapakoneta/Bellefontaine football game was suspended at 8:33 of the third quarter when lightning was seen over Bellefontaine's AcuSport Stadium. The Redskins had just taken a 16-14 lead prior to play being stopped.

The Redskins and Chieftains will resume play at AcuSport Stadium at 10:30 a.m., Saturday.
