Football semifinals washout

Mother Nature’s fury during the football semifinals when heavy rains led to the AIA postponing the Nov. 22 semifinals until the next Monday citing safety concerns, attendance and field conditions. Jokes and criticism poured in (pun intended) from followers, fans and even coaches. More than one suggested a conspiracy theory was at work, not only for money purposes, but that AIA Executive Director Harold Slemmer, a former principal at Mountain Pointe High School, moved the games back because it would have been advantageous for Desert Ridge to play the Pride in sloppy conditions in Division I. The fields dried enough to play on by the end of that weekend, and schedules were quickly moved back, with the Divisions I through V semifinals rescheduled for Nov. 25, while championship games remained on Nov. 29 (Div. II, III and IV) or Nov. 30 (Div. I).
