Another storm, more postponements


By Phil Anastasia

Wednesday's storm has led to another round of postponements in New Jersey fall tournament play as well as football action.

The Cherry Hill East at Cherokee football game has been postponed from Wednesday night to Friday at 7.

The delay means that Cherry Hill East will have gone nearly three full weeks between games. The Cougars last played Oct. 20 at Washington Township.

They had a bye the weekend of Oct. 26-27 and the Cherokee game, which was orginally scheduled for Nov. 2, now has been pushed back a full week.

The Bordentown at Cinnaminson football game also was postponed from Wednesday to Friday, also at 7.

Also, the Holy Cross at Robbinsville football game has been postponed from Wednesday to Thursday at 7.

The Schalick at Woodstown football game has been postponed from Wednesday to Thursday at 6.

On Tuesday, the Pennsauken at Shawnee football game was postponed from Wednesday to Friday at 7.

Soccer, field hockey and girls' volleyball action scheduled for Wednesday also is expected tobe postponed, although officials still were working through the details of many of those games in trying to arrange for make-up dates.

The NJSIAA on Monday pushed back the boys' and girls' soccer tournaments to accomodate those schools that have been hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy.

The boys public state finals are set for Dec. 1 and the girls' public state finals are set for Dec. 2, both at The College of New Jersey. Those dates are two weeks later than the orginal dates for the state finals.

Teams that play on artificial turf fields are expected to be able to play on Thursday as the storm is expected to move quickly through the area.
