FRANCISCO STOPS GUAM SPORTS

[sixcol_five_last]

By Robert Balajadia

franciscoMother nature and IIAAG sports, or outside sports for that matter, have not been on the same page this year. On the eve of a big weekend of sports, the once tropical depression turned into a typhoon named Francisco and shutdown all Friday night Oct. 17 sport operations.

It now threatens the playing of two semifinal football games on Saturday Oct. 19, while assuring a wet road for the Asia Pacifc Rely and Annual Ko’Ko’ Marathon races.

The typhoon is not going to hit Guam directly, but the island is sure to be experiencing typhoon like conditions until its passing. The tail end often brings the most rain, which is what Guam is said to be experiencing.

Guam went into Condition 1 early this morning, forcing the cancelation of all schools and majority of businesses.

Friday night was supposed to feature the opening round of the high school girls volleyball.
ND @ Sanchez 6 p.m.
Okkodo @ Southern 6 p.m.
GW @ St. John’s 6 p.m.
JFK @ Academy 6 p.m.
All games have been moved to Saturday at their original times.

francisco2The two football games will no doubt have to have tough field conditions.
GW vs. Guam High @ Southern 3 p.m.
Okkodo vs. Sanchez @ Okkodo 7 p.m.
If the games aren’t ready to go, they will likely be made up Monday, according to IIAAG President Martin Boudreau.

The Asia Pacific Relay has been moved to 6:30 @ JFK

The Ko’Ko’ road race is on Sunday and it appears to be unaffected by the weather, meaning there are no signs of a postponement.

The Guam National Youth Football Federation has not yet released whether or not the games will be carried on as normal or postponed.

So, stay warm and indoors this rainy and windy Friday and tune in to GSPN, including our Facebook and Twitter, for all the latest on weather updates and sports happenings!
