AURORA | Wet spring weather that has forced postponements and rescheduling right and left claimed a victim with the loss of the big-time Aurora girls soccer game between Grandview and Regis Jesuit.
Two more days of wet and snowy weather scrubbed Saturday’s scheduled morning battle between the Continental League-leading Raiders and the Wolves, co-leaders of the Centennial League, at Legacy Stadium.
With the end of the girls soccer regular season looming next week, the game will not be rescheduled according to Grandview athletic director Jamee Ulitzky.
Coach Tari Wood’s Wolves have no flexibility in the schedule given they have games scheduled on Tuesday (vs. Cherokee Trail), Wednesday (vs. undefeated Columbine) and Thursday (vs. Colorado Academy). More on the Wolves and the position of Aurora teams ahead of the postseason, here.
The game against the Cougars — which has already been rescheduled twice — must get in at the expense of the others as both teams remain undefeated in the Centennial League and must decide the league winner. The matchup is currently scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Legacy Stadium.
Regis Jesuit also has games backing up, as it is currently scheduled to play Castle View on Tuesday, ThunderRidge on Thursday and Chaparral on Friday.
Cherokee Trail also lost its game with Chaparral according to coach Jeremy Schaller, who said the game with the Wolverines has been canceled for a third time and the schedule won’t allow it to be made up.
The game was originally slated for before spring break in March, then moved into mid-April and finally to Saturday.
