A series of lightning delays on Monday forced a shift in the boys' schedule for the 43rd District tournament at Lafayette.

The first-round game between Tates Creek and Lexington Christian, which the Commodores led 2-1, never resumed after going to halftime. It will be completed Tuesday night beginning at 7 p.m.

The semifinals — Lafayette vs. Paul Laurence Dunbar at 6 p.m. and Lexington Catholic vs. the first-round game winner at 8 — will now be played Wednesday.

The championship game is still scheduled for Thursday at 6 p.m. The participants will advance to the 11th Region tournament at Frankfort next week.

At about 9:30 the hosts began notifying the public via social media. Coaches and media received an email notice later Monday night.

Girls' 43rd District

Tates Creek upended Lafayette 4-1 in the first-round game on Monday.

Ally Poage had a hat trick for the tournament-host Commodores (12-9), who scored their most goals this season since their last meeting with Lafayette (1-19) on Sept. 21. Tates Creek won that game 9-0.

Sydney Isaccs also scored for Tates Creek. Maddie Covey, Sydney Disponette and Izzy Verones each had an assist.
