ERIE, Pa. — For the second time in three weeks, Mercyhurst has run into severe weather problems, forcing a postponement of a game. This time, tonight’s game against Army will be pushed back, though the second game of the two-game series, set for Saturday night, is still scheduled to be played.
Mercyhurst was scheduled to fly from Erie to Pittsburgh last night and on to White Plains, N.Y. But USAir flight 1862, from Erie to Pittsburgh, was canceled due to the weather conditions. Subsequent flight cancellations resulted in the postponement of Friday’s game.
The game has been rescheduled and will be played on Jan. 5, 2000 at 7 p.m., at Army’s Tate Rink. Army was originally scheduled to travel to Sacred Heart that evening, but instead will play Sacred Heart the following afternoon at 5 p.m., at the Milford Ice Pavilion in Connecticut.
Mercyhurst also faced rough weather on Nov. 21, when trying to take a bus trip to Connecticut for a game against UConn on Nov. That game was also postponed.
