The game was originally scheduled for Sept. 1. After a lengthy lightning delay, the game started late but was eventually suspended as more lightning moved in.
The game will be picked up with 3:53 left in the first quarter and with Riverside leading 2-0.
Cardinal Gibbons is currently 3-0 on the season and Riverside sits at 2-1. Both teams had bye weeks scheduled for the week of Sept. 29.
N.C. High School Athletic Association rules state that once a game is started a result must be reported. The two teams can agree to end the game with the current score, or they can finish the game at a later date. If one team refuses to finish the game, that team must forfeit.
