ERIE, Pa. — The Mercyhurst Lakers will not be making a scheduled trip to Connecticut for a scheduled MAAC league Wednesday night due to extreme whether conditions in the Northern Pennsylvania/upstate New York area.
Mercyhurst is located in Erie, Pa., and that area, including the Buffalo, N.Y., region, was socked with a nasty snowstorm on Monday. Those areas border Lake Erie, and its lake-effect conditions dumped up to two feet of snow on the area in one day.
According to league officials, Mercyhurst, which generally travels to the New England region by plane, was scheduled to make a bus trip, but was forced to cancel due to poor road conditions along the way.
The Lakers are also scheduled to travel to Eastern New York to play Union this Friday, and Rensselaer this Saturday. Both games are still scheduled.
No makeup date has been set for the postponed game against UConn.
