Inclement Weather Forces Cancellation of Northwestern (Iowa) Game
SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. (September 7, 2012) — Heavy rains and lightning strikes forced officials to call the match between John Brown and Northwestern (Iowa) early today.
Before the weather moved into Siloam Springs, the Golden Eagles found themselves down 2-0 before players, coaches and official had to seek shelter.
As per NAIA rules, the game did not meet the required minutes needed to be considered an official match, so the 2-0 Red Raider lead will not officially count. The two teams have agreed not to continue the match tomorrow.
Good weather is expected to return on Saturday, so the 2012 Quality Inn Fall Classic slate of games will proceed according to schedule.
