The 2019 SD&G high school soccer schedule is in limbo, due to field conditions and rainy, cold weather forecast for the rest of the week.
Play had been slated to begin May 1 on several fronts, including at Char-Lan DHS in Williamstown, where a full day of matches was booked.
The likely scenario now is that the season will be compressed, with game times shortened in order to complete league action in time for playoffs and EOSSAA.
All UCDSB fields remain closed.
Here's today's announcement from league convenor Jack Chisholm:
Hello Soccer Gang: with 30-40 mm of rain coming to the area and extremely high winds (cold) we have decided to cancel tomorrow's and Thursday's games.
A NEW schedule will be sent out THURSDAY.
The hope is that matches slated for Friday will be able to go ahead. The News will post updates when they become available.
