A lightning strike during Wednesday afternoon’s thunderstorms in Mountain Home has damaged the electrical infrastructure at Bomber Stadium and will limit some of the stadium’s feature at tonight’s scrimmage.

According to Athletic Director Mitch Huskey, Bomber Stadium will be without a scoreboard or public address system for tonight’s preseason benefit game against Highland.

“It looks like lightning may have hit the bleachers, traveled through a ground system and destroyed the transformer that controls all the electricity for the press box and scoreboard,” Huskey explained Thursday afternoon.

The lighting system at the stadium was undamaged Huskey said, so the scrimmage will proceed as planned with a 6 p.m. kickoff for the varsity half, with a junior varsity half to follow.

“It’s been a rough week for the football team,” said Huskey. “First, the heat index pulled them off the field on Monday and Tuesday, then the thunderstorm wrecked Wednesday’s practice.”

Admission to the scrimmage is $4 per person, including students. As the scrimmage is a benefit game for the Arkansas Activities Association’s Catastrophic Injury Fund, only AAA passes will be honored. Mountain Home High School student or family passes will not be accepted.
