With large, dark clouds approaching the field before kickoff, fans and players were hoping that the storm rolling through Leesville would be short-lived.

However, the rain and lightning were too much, and the Vernon Parish High School Football Jamboree was canceled, 12-minutes into the first matchup.

Pickering and Rosepine were scoreless when the lightening was first seen, and the delays racked up, ending the night.

The teams will not have to wait long to get back on the field with week one next Friday. Leesville goes on the road to play Washington-Marion, and Rosepine hosts Merryvillle at 7 p.m. on Sept 1. Pickering plays Lake Charles College Prep at 7 p.m. on September 1 at Pickering High School.
