Friday's Midwest Red Subdistrict game between host Pequot Lakes and Class 3A's seventh-ranked Perham Yellowjackets was officially called at 11:02 p.m. Friday because of lightning.

The game will restart at 6 p.m. Monday with Perham in possession of the ball with a fourth down and 2 at the Perham 34. It will be the start of the fourth quarter.

The game was postponed because of lighting around 9:30 p.m. and the skies continued to light up until the head official deemed it too unsafe for the players to come back onto a wet field after such a long delay.

The score is 19-18 with Pequot Lakes in the lead.
