Despite the heavy rains that have slammed our region all day, the game will be played as scheduled.

The Union put out a release this afternoon saying that they were discussing canceling it because of flooding around the stadium. But after consulting with Chester officials, they decided it was okay to go ahead.

Parking Lot G is closed tonight because of flooding. More information on that is here. And the SEPTA schedule for tonight is here.
