Because of severe inclement weather, the first Border Bowl was postponed until Sunday at 1 p.m.

The game, originally scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, was at first in a delay from the weather. But with the contest just minutes away from its initial kickoff, heavy rain and strong winds started to come through the area. After a few minutes, both teams went into the locker rooms for cover. Fans started clearing out a little later.

In its inaugural year, the All-Star game pits the area’s best seniors against each other in a Georgia vs. South Carolina showdown at Laney High School’s Memorial Stadium. It will still be televised by WJBF-Ch. 6.

Lakeside’s Jarrett Troxler is the Georgia head coach and Dan Pippin from North Augusta will coach the South Carolina squad.

Tickets for the game are $5, but tickets already purchased will be honored at the gate. Proceeds benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta.
