Norland-Jackson football game considered non-result after being suspended

Just posting here in case you hadn't seen mine or anyone else's tweets about it yesterday.

The Norland-Jackson game, which Jackson led 19-14 after three quarters Saturday at North Miami Stadium has been ruled a suspended game by the GMAC.

The game was stopped due to lightning at the start of the fourth and never resumed after heavy rain caused the field conditions to deteriorate severely.

"A football game, unlike soccer, baseball or softball does not have a weather clause to end after so many innings or the start of the second half," GMAC executive secretary Cheryl Golden said in a statement to both schools Monday. "In football, if a game does not come to its normal conclusion it is SUSPENDED. That means if the game is to be resumed it would pick up from the exact point of suspension. Same score, quarter, time on clock, time outs left etc. With that said, since it is a non-district game it does not need to be completed."

The game will likely not be completed since it is not a district game.

Both Norland and Jackson remain 1-0 so far this season heading into this week's games. Jackson plays Booker T. at Traz Powell Friday at 7:30 p.m. Norland plays Homestead at 7:30 p.m. Friday at North Miami Stadium.
