WHITPAIN TWP., Pa. (CBS) – In the midst of storm clean-up, Montgomery County officials are working hard to resume normal activities.

In Whitpain Township that means soccer playoffs on the large field behind Shady Grove Elementary School on Skippack Pike, but some of those games are in jeopardy and it has nothing to do with Superstorm Sandy.

“Somebody went over and was checking out the fields just in terms of the storm damage that we got and what they found is that one of the fields was completely tore up. And it was obvious that someone had been out there with a truck or an SUV doing donuts and the field is absolutely unplayable,” said Patrick Foley, president of WRA Soccer, as he described what they found.

Foley said it’s been a tough time for area kids who have been cooped up with no electricity, not able to trick or treat and now the playoff games for the middle and high schoolers are in jeopardy.

Fortunately the younger age groups use different fields.

“We will likely be able to get all of the kids to play,” said Foley.

Parents should monitor their e-mail for updates.

In the meantime if anyone saw anything suspicious they should contact Whitpain Police.
