WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- Try as they might, the Palm Beach Atlantic University and Eckerd College women’s soccer teams were unable to get their season opener underway on Tuesday evening as lightning, thunder, and rain all pummeled Palm Beach County and forced both teams to look into a date in which to re-schedule.
While no official makeup date has been announced, both teams have discussed an early October date for a possible re-scheduling between the two NCAA South Region opponents.
With a regularly scheduled 7 pm kickoff time, the two teams tried to wait out lighting and even took the field for pregame warm-ups but were quickly called off the field one final time after lightning was once again spotted in the vicinity of Lantana Field.
