CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Poor weather brought high school softball to a halt in the first two days of the week throughout the Kanawha Valley, forcing the postponements of numerous key games.
To start off the week, Buffalo was scheduled to play at Sissonville on Monday. Sissonville started its season with a 13-0 victory over Mingo Central, while Buffalo posted a win over Hannan in its opener, and the two-time defending Class A state champions possess a 3-0 record.
Thanks to rain late Sunday and snow throughout the day Monday, that game and the entire area schedule was cancelled.
Although Buffalo was scheduled to host Sherman on Tuesday, the Bison got another day off and will not play until Friday afternoon against 2012 Region 4 champion and Class AAA State Tournament runner-up Parkersburg South.
Hurricane also had a key game called off Tuesday, as the Redskins were scheduled to face perennial power Cabell Midland.
"At this point, we just want to play so we can get on the field," Hurricane Coach Josh Caldwell said. "We have been stuck in the gym practicing, but everyone is in the same boat."
Caldwell minimized the importance of the matchup with the Knights.
"Right now, the Cabell Midland game can't be our main focus," he said. "We're just preparing for the postseason."
