Tigers might travel
This wintery March weather also has Maplewood thinking about changing some plans — travel plans, that is.
“We’re already three games behind,” said Tigers head coach Robert Finkbeiner. “We have a game April 1 at Eisenhower. That’s probably not going to happen. We have a game against Meadville on April 4, and that’s doubtful.
“Our field probably won’t be ready for a month,” he added. “We’re supposed to be going to West Middlesex April 6. That one, we might be able to play. I’m guessing we will get that game in. But we’ll need to have three or four days of sunshine and wind to get our field dried out.”
Finkbeiner thinks that his team may have to spend the better part of its season on the road just to get its games in.
“I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if we have to play some of home games away like we did two years ago,” he said. “We played our home game against Conneaut Lake at Conneaut Lake. We had a home game at Linesville two years ago as well.”
