The game between Scott County and Franklin County paused and never resumed. Lightning and heavy rain delayed the matchup until Friday evening.
Play will continue on Friday at 6 p.m. with Scott County up 2-0 in the top of the first with one out and runners on second and third. At 8 p.m. Paul Laurence Dunbar will take on Woodford County in the other scheduled semifinal game. Both games will be played at Frederick Douglass High School.
The championship is expected to be Saturday, but a time has not yet been announced.
