Heavy thunderstorms rolled through Nassau County and parts of western Suffolk last night and wreaked havoc with high school sporting events. The storms came through the area as most high school football games were in the later part of the second half. Some games did not finish.
Lawrence led Manhasset, 51-6, as quarterback Joe Capobianco fired four touchdown passes in the first half. The second half never got under way and school officials agreed to call it an official game.
In other area football games that didn't go the distance, Seaford led Island Trees, 20-0, in the third quarter before lightning strikes forced a suspension. They will resume Friday at 3 p.m.
Babylon hosting Bayport-Blue Point, led 41-0 at the half when the game was stopped by lightning. The teams will finish Friday at 3:30 p.m.
Bethpage led New Hyde Park, 16-3, at the half and the game will be played to completion Saturday
