@ Wagner

The game this Saturday, which was originally scheduled to be at home at noon, has been changed to away @ Wagner starting at 2:00pm.  The apparent reason is that the snow will not be cleared from Fisher.

Even fewer home games.   Mad

Is that the snow from last weekend?  Did it not snow on Staten Island?

The snow here in Eastern PA is pretty much ice at this point and would be nearly imposible to clear.  Easton and NYC are both expecting up to a foot of snow on Thursday.  I hope Wagner has some fancy snow clearing equipment.

Not a good showing by our AD! Embarassed

Would be curious to know what happens if the game at Wagner gets snowed out too - did we have the forsight to negotiate something back at LC when the Ice Age ends?

We played at Wagner last season.  We've been playing Wagner every year (home and home) for as long as I can remember so I would assume that we get the next two in Easton.

If Wagner's field can't go due to snow I assume we'll just postpone it until there's a break later in the schedule.  It's not as if it requires much in the way of travel plans.

Why is Fisher the only field with snow on it? Every other D1 game was played on fields that the snow was removed

Because lax has been treated like a maroon-headed stepchild since 1892?

Looking for a strong showing by the Leopards at Wagner tomorrow in yet another potential snow day!

No change in the game status (so far) from the Wagner athletic site.  It remains a 2:00 PM start in Staten Island.

I do note, however, that Wagner WLax will be playing at Lehigh for a 3:00 PM start (moved from a Noon start).  I guess the Brownie Bunch needed a couple extra hours to clear their snow. Perfectly reasonable.  But Lehigh can clear its field and we can't?

Again - back "in the day," the team would be out there with shovels and scrapers helping to clear the field themselves.

With Mike G and Kevin W out - seemingly for the season - we have lost depth that we could ill afford to lose, especially in mid-field.  

Will be interested to see how much time various frosh get plus the usual LC bug-a-boos - FO % and defensive clears/turnoavers.   Suspect we can score - can we keep possession of the rock?

Game cancelled.

Once again, the February starts to the Lax schedule results in a cancelled game.  But the issue of clearing the Fisher Stadium Field makes me wonder what is going on down there.  Is it a concern about the turf or what?  This is 2014 the last time I looked, and I would think they could figure out a way to do it.  However, we are expecting snow again in Western CT so maybe it will snow again in Easton.

At least we will get home field back if the game is rescheduled, assuming any issues getting Fisher can be resolved.

They can play it on the Quad for all I care - just play the game.  Don't simply drop it from the schedule.
