Glenhayes, W.Va. (AP) -- Tolsia High School's football team is sporting new equipment just two days after its facilities building burned.

Tolsia athletic director Danny Mayo says the players were fitted with helmets and pads Thursday.

Mayo says officials worked quickly with a Huntington sporting goods store to order the new equipment, which is being paid for by the Wayne County Board of Education.

Mayo says the team's blue home jerseys were salvaged because they were being dry cleaned at the time of the fire, while blue game pants were lost in the fire. New ones have arrived.

Tolsia's next game is on Saturday at Wayne.

The game originally was scheduled for Friday night.

The West Virginia Fire Marshal's Office says the Tuesday morning fire was deliberately set.
