Several Friday night football games in the Tri-State were rescheduled to Saturday in light of flash flood alerts.

Oak Hills at Elder was rescheduled for 4:30 p.m. at The Pit, and Moeller will play at Kentucky powerhouse Trinity in Louisville at 1 p.m.

Also rescheduled for Saturday: 

  • Western Hills at Roger Bacon, noon. Roger Bacon's Bron Bacevich Stadium was heavily flooded last year, which led to major renovations. 
  • North College Hill  at Frankfort (Kentucky), noon.
  • Dixie Heights at Milford 7 p.m.

Other schools moved their games ahead. Highlands played Scott County on Thursday night at Georgetown College; Bishop Brossart at Bellevue, Newport at Owen County, Pendleton County at Bracken County were rescheduled for Thursday night as well.

Walton-Verona tweeted Friday it that planned to host Holmes at 7:30 p.m., but recommended that fans bring a poncho.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for most of the Tri-State until Saturday at 5 a.m. Counties under the watch include Clermont, Brown, Adams, Hamilton in Ohio; Mason, Bracken, Robertson, Pendleton, Grant, Owen, Carroll and Gallatin in Kentucky; and Switzerland, Ohio, Dearborn and Ripley in Indiana.

The 9 First Warning Weather Team said things should dry up before Sunday morning.
