Here we go! The 2018 Iowa prep football season kicks off Friday night for Charles City High School. The Comets travel to Cresco to play the Cadets. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
The weather might become a problem, however. Here is the forecast from the National Weather Service for Cresco:
Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after noon. Cloudy, with a high near 72. South wind 11 to 13 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Showers and thunderstorms likely before 1am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 63. South wind 6 to 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Now let’s take a look down the road.
Head’s up Comet Student Section, the Waverly-Shell Rock Student Section has released a schedule of its theme nights at Go-Hawk football games. When Charles City travels to Waverly on Oct. 19, that section is planning to go all patriotic with an “America Out” theme.
