For the second time in three weeks, Hernando High had to call off a football game scheduled at Tom Fisher Memorial Stadium.
A little over an hour before the start of Friday night's contest between the Leopards and visiting Jacksonville-Bishop Kenny, the game was canceled after a late-afternoon storm drenched the area, leaving the field in poor condition.
Since it was not a district matchup, the game does not have to be played and won't be made up. The Crusaders opted not to take a return trip all the way from Duval County.
Hernando also canceled its preseason classic against River Ridge hours before it was set to get underway back on Aug. 23, due to forecasts of inclement weather and continued flooding from the day before.
The Leopards (0-1) travel to Inverness to play Citrus next Friday at 7:30 p.m.
