Power Outage from Nearby Car Crash Cancels Pierce College's Football Game

The showdown with visiting Moorpark College is moved to Monday.

A power outage caused by a nearby car crash brought about the cancellation of Pierce College's football game against visiting Moorpark College on Saturday, according to the Ventura County Star.

The power is expected to be out at the field until Sunday, according to the report, and the game has been moved to Monday at 6 p.m.

The driver of the car is in critical condition after crashing into a power pole in the 6000 block of Winnetka Avenue in Woodland Hills just before 7 p.m. Saturday, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

"There was a car accident on Winnetka that blew out the transformer," said Moorpark College athletic director Howard Davis, according to the Star. "They said (Sunday) would be the earliest they can get the power back on."

Power went out at the stadium about 10 minutes before the scheduled 7 p.m. kickoff, according to the Star.

"One of our guys thought it was going to be an epic entrance for Pierce College at the time the lights went out," joked Moorpark head coach Will Thurston, according to the Star.
