PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Tigard had driven down to the one-yard line, looking to score, when something other than Tualatin stopped them in a 0-0 game on Friday night.

The power at Tigard High School went out, sending the field into complete darkness aside from fan’s cell phone lights.

The game then moved to Tualatin where Tigard won 28-6.

Portland General Electric’s map says over 2,000 people in the area are without power. The current expected time for power back is around midnight. There have been nearly 1,600 calls about it.

Portland General and Electric said a “broken arm” from a pole due to the wind caused the power outage.

Here’s more from the outage.
