It was University (Orlando, Fla.)
hosting Boone (Orlando, Fla.)
on Friday, but an unexpected third opponent made its way into the game.
During the University High School Band's halftime performance, a treacherous bolt of lightning struck a large tree just feet away from the Boone players, who were huddled together.
The bolt was accompanied by a thunderous boom, and fans, players and the band immediately started to evacuate the field.
The game was immediately called and University came away with a 14-7 win. According to reports, there were no injuries.
What makes the strike even more surprising is that at the time it wasn't even raining. The weather phenomenon is called a "bolt from the blue,"
which comes from the back side of a thunderstorm cloud and can cover great distances.
Add in the fact that the game took place on Friday the 13th, and the incident takes on the stuff of legends.
"We all ran for cover," Bob Jones, father of Boone kicker Austin Jones, told the Orlando Sentinel
. "The weather was great and it hit with no warning. Friday the 13th was a crazy night."
