Here’s an update from the Colt World Series
By John Sherrard, Correspondent
LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Covina Blue will have to wait another day for its third pool-play game in the Colt World Series after thunderstorms forced a postponement of Monday night’s game against White Division opponent Greensboro, N.C.
After an hour-and-a-half thunder and lightning delay, Colt officials announced the game would be rescheduled for today at 2 p.m. (EST).
The game called be heard over the Internet at www.ihigh.com/2010coltseries.
“Our kids were so pumped for this game, they would have stayed until midnight to get this game in,” Covina manager Tony Page said. “But we’re just as excited to come back (today) with that same intensity and play our best baseball.”
In the other White Division game earlier in the afternoon, Hoosier North of Lafayette, Ind. eliminated Mexico, 7-5.
The winner of today’s Covina/Greensboro game will advance to Wednesday’s semifinal, with the loser being eliminated. Covina would finish in second place in the division and face the first-place team in the Red Division if victorious.
Covina would have had a scheduled day off today before the medal-round semifinals, but now it could possibly play three consecutive days.
Today’s other scheduled games include Puerto Rico vs. Texas and Lafayette vs. Czech Republic.
