The Rock Hill-South Pointe rivalry high school football game has been postponed to noon Saturday.

The game was originally slated for 7:30 p.m. Friday night at South Pointe, but Stallions athletics director Mike Drummond made the call to move the game after checking the predicted path of Hurricane Hermine. The storm, upgraded to a hurricane Thursday afternoon, is supposed to make landfall Thursday in Florida and cut across Georgia and South Carolina on Friday. Heavy rain is expected.

Three other games were moved up to Thursday ahead of the expected storm. Chester-Keenan, Lewisville-Buford and Fort Mill-Lancaster will all play Thursday night. Chester and Lewisville will host their games at 7 p.m., while Lancaster will host the Yellow Jackets beginning at 6 p.m.

The Northwestern-South Meck contest set for District Three Stadium on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. has not been changed, yet. Athletics director Lauren West said the plan was to try and start the game and that the fall-back would be to play at noon on Saturday.

And Great Falls’ contest at Blackville-Hilda was moved to Saturday, with the time - either 11 a.m. or 1 p.m. - to be determined later based on field conditions.
