After three days of early closings and no after-school activities for a dozen non-air-conditioned Baltimore City high schools, their teams will be allowed to play Friday despite closing early again.

The heat wave broke Friday, but games still may be in peril from storms forecast for this evening in the Baltimore area.


Storms interrupted games all over the area last weekend. A few were completed Friday. Some carried over to Saturday, but a few of those had to be postponed again and finished Monday. Some were canceled. To try to avoid a repeat of that, some schools have moved their football games to earlier start times.

The Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown between Glen Burnie and South River has been moved to 5 p.m.

Also in Anne Arundel County, Annapolis at No. 13 Old Mill will kick off at 4:15 p.m.; North County at No. 5 Broadneck will start at 5:45 p.m.; Chesapeake at Severna Park at 5:45 p.m.; St. Mary’s at Landon at 5 p.m.; Avalon at Severn at 5 p.m.

No. 1 St. Frances has moved its game against Christ the King, N.Y., at Utz Field in Patterson Park to 5:30 p.m.

Douglass had already moved its game with Digital Harbor to Saturday at Dunbar’s William “Sugar” Cain Field, but the game will start a couple hours later than planned, at noon.
