Bloomington and Danville illustrated the difference that a steady rainstorm makes in a high school football game.
The Purple Raiders and the Vikings combined to pass for 160 yards before halftime in totally dry conditions in Bloomington. The second half was played in anything from a steady rain to a downpour and no more passes were completed.
There was one fumble before intermission; four thereafter.
State-ranked Bloomington held a narrow edge each half, winning the opening half 20-7 and prevailing in the second half 13-8, which accounted for the team's 33-15 triumph.
Fans tried to brave the conditions for a time, but by game's end, there were fewer than 50 Danville faithful still in the stands. The Bloomington side held an estimated 100 spectators at game's end.
