A disruption in an internet connection caused local media outlets, including the Black Diamond Sports Network (BDSN), to lose service and disallowed live broadcasting of the Mount Carmel and Southern Columbia football game on Saturday night.

According to several sources, the nearby cell tower went out prior to the opening kickoff. This disrupted the cellphone service of those in attendance as well. A cause was not cited for the cell phone tower’s power outage.
