Midland (3-0) and Hurricane (5-0) figure to be contenders for the Region 4 title, and squared off in what proved to be a pivotal game for the growth of the Redskins' program in 2012.
The teams last faced each other in the Mountain State Athletic Conference semifinals, with Hurricane getting a 6-3 win on Midland's home field. After rain delayed the MSAC title game for four days, the Redskins edged St. Albans for their first league crown at Hurricane.
Hurricane and Midland have outscored their opponents by 15 or 20 runs where Hurricane has a total of 76 runs scored in only five games and Midland totaling 37 in three.
Caldwell said he is working to reschedule Tuesday's game, but that no date had been set. The Redskins have already had six games called off by weather in the first three weeks of the season. Hurricane will play Parkersburg and Winfield during previously scheduled off days within the next week.
Tuesday's weather also forced the postponement of Herbert Hoover's game against George Washington. The Huskies (1-0) opened the season with a 2-1 victory over Wayne, the defending state champions. Hoover is scheduled to play Nicholas County today, which has an identical 1-0 record.
Region 4 newcomer Logan saw its home game against Lincoln County called off Monday. Lincoln County started its season with a loss against defending state champion John Marshall, but has four straight wins since.
Also among Monday's postponements, Ripley's home game against South Charleston will be rescheduled for a later date.
