FAIRFIELD, Ill. — The heat didn’t stop the Mt. Carmel Jr. Aces from playing their scheduled football games at Fairfield Saturday.
But lightning did.
Even with a temperature of 93 degrees and heat index of 120 at 5 p.m., Fairfield officials kept their scheduled kickoff intact. Mt. Carmel’s 6th graders then scorched the hosts on their own with a 36-0 victory.
The 8th-grade game began under cooler conditions, after storm clouds began to roll in. But, that also led to an early end after lightning stopped the wcontest with 47 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Mt. Carmel was leading 14-0 when the game was suspended.

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ill. — Never mind that the Mt. Carmel Jr. Aces held their home opener football games at Lawrenceville Saturday. They looked just as much at home on the artificial turf at Ed Loeb Field than they would have at Riverview Stadium.
Playing here while the weather-damaged turf at their home base replenishes itself, the Jr. Aces had little trouble with Robinson, winning the 5th-6th grade game, 34-6, then the 7th-8th grade game, 36-20, leading 36-0 after three quarters.
Both Mt. Carmel squads introduced a new offense in the season opener, though both appeared to run the Auburn scheme as if in mid-season form. The 7th-8th graders even ran the package out of an optimal shotgun, a historic first for the traditionally under-center team.
The Jr. Aces play Fairfield on Saturday, with the first-game kickoff set for 5 p.m.
