No time change for Johns Hopkins-Maryland showdown

Despite forecasts predicting some turbulent weather for Saturday, the annual contest between No. 3 Johns Hopkins and No. 7 Maryland at Byrd Stadium in College Park will begin at 8 p.m. as originally scheduled, according to a Maryland spokesman.

However, two games have been moved in a pre-emptive strike. The Atlantic Coast Conference showdown between No. 8 Virginia and No. 5 Duke in Durham, N.C., has been moved up one hour to 11 a.m. And the game between No. 20 Loyola and Georgetown in Washington, D.C., has been shifted from its 7 p.m. start to 3:15 p.m.

Forecasts are predicting thunderstorms and wind on Saturday with the heaviest rains projected to fall between 4 and 8 p.m.

Oh, goody, now maybe we can have a repeat of what happened back on March 23 when the Tufts-Stevenson game, scheduled to face off at Unitas Stadium at Towson at 8:00PM, was delayed for over two hours by thunderstorms, didn't start until well after 10:00, and didn't finish until after midnight. Maybe this will be another signature contest (and TV broadcast) for Lacrosse. The game should be moved to 1:30PM and televised along with the UVA-Duke game as back-to-back.

back in my day, we didn't postpone lacrosse games for rain, thunder, sleet, hail or yo momma's wrath!!! WE WANT MORE!
