Starting the game early, to avoid the looming weather conditions, did not alter the intentions of Mother Nature. Lightning in the sky would hold up the Falcons game plan for 3 hours.
When the game resumed; officials and coaches had agreed to playing 8 minute quarters and a 5 minute half-time; with the purpose of getting this game in the book.
The Spartans offered very little resistance as the Falcons ran for a total of 382 yards and 6 more TDs in the remaining 14 minutes after the lightning delays.
This game was officially over just a few moments into the third quarter, as lightning again flashed and better judgement would concede that the Spartans were no match for the Falcons in this contest.
