After four consecutive days of rain and wind gusts exceeding 50 mph, Bellevue's Division III first-round game scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday at Bellevue Athletic Field has been moved to Strobel Field at Cedar Point Stadium in Sandusky.
Bellevue's home field is a natural grass surface, and will not recover in time from all the water damage it received, which included heavy downpour rain on Friday as well.
Saturday's game in Sandusky is still scheduled for 7 p.m., with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Bellevue High School for $7, while all tickets bought at the game are $9.
The Redmen (9-1) just played at Sandusky on Friday, posting a 52-6 win in the regular season finale.
One other area team is hosting a home playoff game this weekend, and will not be impacted by the weather. St. Paul (7-3) hosts Tiffin Calvert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, and there are no current plans to relocate the matchup. Whitney Field is also a natural grass surface, but had fresh sod and state-of-the-art drainage tiles installed in August.
The actual playing surface is in fair condition according to St. Paul and Norwalk administrators.
