High school football games rescheduled

INVERNESS -- Both high school football games involving Citrus County teams scheduled for Friday night were postponed because of bad weather and rescheduled for different days.

"With no open week, we thought that would be the best time to get it in," Crystal River coach Jere DeFoor said.
