Continuing rain cancels matches
Monday, September 21, 2009
LEBANON, Tenn. – Cumberland’s soccer matches Tuesday versus Bethel University have been canceled due to poor field conditions from the deluge of rain in the area over the last eight days. No makeup date has yet been set for the men’s and women’s matches.
Cumberland’s matches last Saturday versus Virginia Intermont were also canceled because of field conditions after Lebanon received more than nine inches of rain from Monday to Thursday last week. More precipitation over the weekend has not allowed the field to dry sufficiently, and there is even more rain in the forecast for the rest of the week.
Both teams will now open TranSouth Conference action next Monday at Lyon College. The women next play at home on October 7 versus Bryan College, while the men and women host Union University on October 9.
