St. Vincent at Maplewood, ppd.

St. Vincent will try to reach .500 at 4 p.m. today with a road game at MAFC Blue Division foe Maplewood.

The game got underway with about 2 minutes of action Friday, which was enough time for both teams to commit turnovers in the rainy conditions.

It was then scheduled to be concluded Saturday but soggy conditions moved the game back another day.

The Indians enter the game 1-2, 1-0 in league play while Maplewood is 2-1, 1-0.
