Heavy rain forces Post 701 to play on Wednesday

UTICA -- The Amsterdam Post 701 Junior American Legion team had its New York District 5 tournament game against William Russell Post 404 suspended due to inclement weather in the second inning with Post 701 trailing 6-1.

The game will be resumed Wednesday at 3 p.m. at SUNYIT in Utica. If Post 701 rallies to win the game, the team will advance to the New York State Junior American Legion tournament that opens this weekend in Utica. If Post 701 loses, the two teams will immediately meet again in a winner-take-all game.
