August 31 – Richmond, Ind. – The Bethany College field hockey program will have to wait another day to get in their first official game of the season as their match with Earlham College was postponed mid-game and subsequently cancelled due to poor weather conditions.
The game got underway as scheduled, however, with Earlham holding a 2-0 advantage, the weather forced the game to halt. After a lengthy delay the teams decided to call it a day, and cancelled the contest. Stats that had been accrued to that point in the contest will not count towards the season.
The Bison will now “officially” open their season on Sunday, September first when the team hosts The College of Wooster at Bison Stadium. The game is scheduled for a 2 p.m. start.
