JU Men's Soccer Home-Opener Cancelled by Lightening

Aug. 31, 2001

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Dolphins home-opening soccer match was cancelled Friday evening due to lightening. In the 15th minute of the match lightening was detected within a three-mile radius of the playing field, forcing the referees to send both teams into the locker rooms. Following a 25-minute delay referees along with coaches from both teams decided to cancel the match. It has not yet been determined whether the match will be rescheduled.

The Dolphins now look to open the regular on Friday, September 7, at Coastal Carolina at 7:30 p.m. in the Coastal Carolina Tournament in Conway, S.C.
