Morgantown, W.Va. —The Pitt women’s soccer game vs. West Virginia was suspended, Thursday night, after persistent lightning and heavy rains. Both teams were scheduled to open up Big East conference play.
The Panthers and Mountaineers were scoreless with 43 minutes remaining in the second half when play was stopped due to lightning in the area.
After an hour and a half delay, the game was officially cancelled due to unplayable field conditions. By NCAA rule, any game that has not exceeded 70 minutes of play must be re-started at the beginning.
No official time or date has been set for a makeup game; however, the Big East does have Tuesday, October 26 set as an open day for re-scheduling should both teams fail to negotiate another date.
Pitt will travel to Tampa, Fla. to take on USF on Thursday, Sept. 23. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
