The nor'easter that swept through the region bringing a blanket of snow and wind gusts also blew into the air the carefully-laid match schedule for the Div. II North girls' soccer playoffs.
The result is that Belmont High School's semi-final match with Newburyport High School set for today at 5:30 p.m. as been called off, postponed to Saturday, Nov. 10.
Now the fan base that follows the girls will need to get up extra early Saturday as the MIAA has scheduled the match to take place at the ungodly hour of 10 a.m, according to the tournament website.
The game will take place at Manning Field in Lynn.
The change will create a Saturday tsunami of Belmont High sports teams taking part in the post season.
Besides girls' soccer, Belmont High's Girls' swimmers will take part in the North Division championships at MIT in Cambridge while 19 members of the Boys' and Girls' Cross Country team are off to Wrentham on the Rhode Island border.
Those two matches are also expected to get underway Saturday before noon.
