Irish-UIC game postponed
Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Notre Dame was scheduled to play Illinois-Chicago at Four Winds Field in downtown South Bend this afternoon, but the game was postponed late Monday.Forecasts call for snow showers throughout the day on Tuesday, with predicted temperatures in the mid-20s at the time the game would have been played. Officials have not set a make-up date yet.
This is the second time this week winter weather has affected Notre Dame’s spring sports. All three softball games against Pittsburgh were called due to low temperatures on Saturday and Sunday.
The Irish (8-14, 1-8 ACC) have lost eight of their last 11 games and all but one of their nine conference match-ups, but they did win their first two midweek games against Appalachian State and Robert Morris. Illinois-Chicago (6-12, 2-4 Horizon League) is on a two-game winning streak after taking two of three from Valparaiso over the weekend.
Weather permitting, the Irish will host Wake Forest in a three-game set Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The games on Friday and Sunday will be played at Four Winds Field, while the Saturday contest will take place at the U.S. Steel Yard in Gary, Ind.
