ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KPLR) - Scorching temperatures hit the area for another day, bringing concerns about the start of the high school football season playing in the fierce heat.

Hazelwood East took on McClure in a game that was supposed to be played Saturday afternoon, but with the temperatures reaching into the triple digits, it was moved to a more merciful time of 10 a.m.
