Field Hockey’s Big East opener postponed

Due to inclement weather from Hurricane Joaquin, the Owls’ Big East Conference opener against Old Dominion University, the No. 15 team in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association coaches’ poll, in Norfolk, VA Friday has been postponed indefinitely.

Earlier today, the match was pushed up to noon from its original start time of 3 p.m., but it was later suspended because of the weather concerns. Temple’s game Sunday at noon against Liberty University at Geasey Field will be played as scheduled, unless something changes.

The team will now open Big East play against No. 1 Connecticut Friday Oct. 9 at Geasey Field at 2 p.m.

The Owls are 3-7 so far in the 2015 season, and have lost five of their last six games.
