Storm clouds over Frawley Stadium

Storm clouds over Frawley Stadium

Cape Henlopen's Mason Fluharty hit a 2-run homer, but then lightning intervened wiping out the rest of the DIAA Tournament competition Thursday.

The Vikings had just taken a 2-0 lead on No. 1 seed Appoquinimink when lightning reached the area, and as Frawley Stadium began to collect water on the field for the second time in three days, the decision was made to suspend the game.

One complication for the DIAA is Salesianum's Friday graduation, meaning the Sals would not be scheduled for tomorrow.

The decision was made to continue Appoquinimink and Cape Henlopen Friday at 7 p.m. at Frawley Stadum, while Salesianum and Caravel will play Saturday at 7 p.m. in the other semifinal.

If weather holds up, baseball's championship would now be Sunday at 7 p.m.

Weather also wiped out the second boys lacrosse semifinal between Salesianum and Caesar Rodney for a second straight night.

No announcement had been made by the DIAA as of 6 p.m. on when that semifinal, and then the championship game with Cape Henlopen, would be played.

Cape Henlopen has its graduation on Tuesday, so the title game would not be then.

Earlier in the day, the DIAA announced they would play both divisions of the Girls Soccer Championship at 4 p.m. at Dover's two stadiums.

Padua and Wilmington Charter will play on one field, while Caravel and Tower Hill battle for the D2 crown on the other.
