MOUNT PLEASANT - Central Michigan's women's soccer home opener against Evansville on Sunday afternoon was cancelled due to inclement weather at the 29:57 mark of the second half with the Chippewas leading 2-0, and will not be counted as an official game by the NCAA.
Isolated thunderstorms rolling through the region caused an hour delay at halftime and the ultimate cancellation of the contest.
Details on a potential rescheduled contest have not been determined as of publication.
The Chippewas were leading 2-0 on two first-half goals at the delay.
"We were scoring goals, we were keeping possession of the ball well, and we were able to get a number of players game action that will benefit them as the season goes on," head coach Neil Stafford said. "Overall we were very happy with the team's performance today."
The Chippewas begin a stretch of road games this Friday when they travel to Penn State to face West Virginia, and then against Penn State on Sunday. West Virginia is ranked No. 20 in the latest NSCAA/Continental Tire Top 25 rankings, and Penn State is ninth in the country.
The Chippewas are back in Mount Pleasant Friday, Sept. 21, for their next home match, against Kent State.
