An electric atmosphere

The West team tops the East 15-6 in a Shrine All-Star Football Game delayed twice by lightning, including one bolt that hit near the football stadium


Josh Benham/WesCom News Service Baker’s Lukas Huggins, No. 8, made a major contribution to the East team during Saturday’s East-West Shrine All-Star Football Game. Huggins had a 36-yard reception that set up the East’s lone touchdown.

WesCom News Service

During halftime of the East-West Shrine All-Star football game Saturday at Baker Bulldog Memorial Stadium, players, coaches and officials wondered if the game would even be finished.

After a lightning delay that lasted more than 2 hours — one bolt struck near the stadium — and a second lightning delay that lasted more than an hour, the West eventually persevered for a 15-6 victory.

“We were just sitting there, hanging out and waiting for the lightning to pass,” Cole Campbell of the East team said. “We were really hoping they wouldn’t call it off. We really wanted to play our last game.”

When the final lightning delay was over with 6 minutes, 55 seconds left in the third quarter, it was Boomer Fleming of Ridgeview in Redmond who took the scoreless game over with two rushing touchdowns to seal the West’s victory.
