OT. Fire ants delay SC high school football game

NEESES — Football games have been postponed by heavy rains, lightning, power outages: and now, fire ants.

A game in South Carolina was postponed Friday after the referee decided the field was unplayable because of fire ants. Referee Steve Hook says he found 15 to 20 large active fire ant mounds shortly before the game.

I know this was down in the lowerstate, but up here with this recent rain we've gotten, fireant hills are popping up everywhere!

....15 to 20 large, active mounds

I would say that the ref made the right call. Imagine getting tackled and finding yourself in a pile-up.....and realizing that you are on an ant mound. :shock:

Years ago in a Wardlaw Academy game in Bamberg County both teams came up out of a pile up at the 20 yard line with all the players shedding their unforms. They had landed on a fire ant bed. That was a site to see players from both teams united in one cause and that was to beat off the ants.
