The weather has struck again in New England, forcing the postponement of a Nighthawks lacrosse game scheduled for Saturday, March 4 at New England College; the final game before the Nighthawks Spring Break took effect.

Although the sun will be shining with no visible forecast for snow on Saturday, it's the bitterly cold temperatures that have forced this delay. 

High temperatures will only reach 15 degrees in Henniker, N.H. on Saturday with sustained winds expected to be around 25 mph, with gusts up to 40. Winds chills will settle somewhere between -7 and -3 degrees during the scheduled game time. 

The Nighthawks and Pilgrims have reschedule to Monday, April 3 at 3:00 p.m.; making it the only non-conference match for the Nightahwks in April. 

Newbury returns to action following Spring Break on Saturday, March 18 as they welcome Smith College at 1:00 p.m.
