Huddled together in the Plant High School gym, students, cheerleaders, and fans wait as the rain and lightning attempted to pass in the area.

The rivalry game was initially scheduled for Friday, Aug. 24, but as it hit 8:30 p.m., Plant and Hillsborough administrators decided to reschedule the game for Saturday night.

Irritated by the delay and rescheduling of the game, wide receiver Terence Doston stated, “This happens every year, we were ready to take home a dub.”

This is the third year in a row that the game against Plant has been rescheduled due to weather. Saturday at 7 p.m. lighting in the area once again delayed the game, pushing the start time to 8:30 p.m.

Despite the wait, the Terriers lost their home opener to the Panthers 45-28.

Plant scored on its first drive, 3:40 into the game, and Hillsborough tied the game late in the first quarter on an Adonis Johnson rushing TD.

Back and forth possessions continued before Plant pulled away in the fourth quarter.

Hillsborough (0-1) plays this Friday, Aug. 31 at home against Plant City. Kick off is at 7:30 p.m. Prior to the Plant game, the Terriers won their pre-season classic against East Lake 29-23.
