TUPELO — Dale and Tupelo were locked in a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning Tuesday when heavy rain and lightning short-circuited the rest of the game.

Dale coach Jerry Sanford said the game would be completed Sept. 25 when Tupelo visits Dale. The regularly scheduled matchup will then be played.

Dale (5-1) will launch Roff Tournament action Thursday. The Pirates will oppose Fort Cobb at 2:30 p.m. The tournament is scheduled to run through Saturday.
