CINCINNATI - Lightning storms forced more than 30 Friday high school football games to stop and resume Saturday while 20 games were completed.   

High school football rules require that games stop for a minimum of 30 minutes when lightning is spotted.

SEE Saturday's schedule and Friday's scores below. 

Friday night's marquee  game - Colerain at St. Xavier - will resume at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. It was delayed with St. Xavier leading 6-0 at halftime. The stadium was cleared when the worst weather pushed through.
