BC softball game called off

The debut of the 2013 Butte Central softball team will have to wait.

The Maroons’ non-conference game against defending Class A State champion Polson scheduled for Saturday was called off because of the weather forecast, BC Athletics Director Chad Petersen said this morning.

The Pirates were scheduled to play at Anaconda at 11 and in Butte at 4. BC’s fields at the Copper Mountain Sports Complex aren’t ready yet, so the school was hopeful the game could be played in Anaconda.

Both of the games have been called off, however.

Petersen said he isn’t sure if or when the BC-Polson game will be made up. The next date on the BC schedule is April 6, when Corvallis is scheduled to come to town.
