LOVELAND, Ohio — The football Tigers lose to the Walnut Hills Eagles, 55-32. And in a strange turn of events, stadium lights turn off as the game ends — leaving stands and field in total darkness as players, marching band, cheerleaders and fans leave the stadium using cell phone lights.

Assistant Atheltic Director Eric Fry said he was unsure why the lights went out. The school will be investigating. The game had officially already ended, he said.

Lights are automatically set to go off at midnight and he said the lights were not accidentally turned off, Fry said.
