Because of Saturday's spinoff rains from Hurricane Matthew, the EMU field hockey game at Sweet Briar College has been postponed. The teams are still finalizing plans for a rescheduled date for the ODAC contest.
Eastern Mennonite (4-6 / 0-2 ODAC) is in search of their first conference win of the season, while the Vixens (0-8 / 0-3) are looking for their first win overall.
The next scheduled game for the Royals is next Saturday, Oct. 15, when they host Virginia Wesleyan at 1:00pm as part of EMU's Homecoming Weekend. If the Sweet Briar game is not re-scheduled before then, the women will have a two-week break between games, with their last contest on Oct. 1.
