RAINED OUT: Lions', Indians' baseball and softball await season openers
One of these days the rain will let the Lions and Indians play.
The baseball rivals' latest Seven-Mile War tried to find refuge in Wilsonville High School's hydro-friendly turf field on Tuesday, but the game was rescheduled to 5 p.m. on May 16 just hours in advance.
St. Helens' home game against Class 6A state first-rounder Wilson was also called in advance, so the Lions will await their clash with Class 6A first-rounder Century pushed ahead to 4 p.m. on March 20 at Hillsboro Stadium.
Scappoose, after its Thursday game at Cascade was rescheduled to 4:30 p.m. at Frank Wade Park in Newport, will hope to host Class 3A semifinalist Rainier at 4:30 p.m. on Monday.
Tribe softball, after its home opener against Cascade was not to be on Monday, will play at Class 3A champion Rainier at 4:30 p.m. on March 20.
Lions softball was, incredibly, fortunate enough to face Class 6A second-rounder Clackamas on Wednesday at Hood View Park in Happy Valley but fell 12-2.
St. Helens (0-1 overall) is scheduled to hit the road for a 4:30 p.m. game against No. 9 Class 5A play-in rounder Hermiston (0-1) on Friday.
