Spruce Mountain and Winthrop will have to wait another week to face off in their biggest game of the season.

The forecast for heavy rain Saturday has forced the postponement of the state field hockey championship games for a week.

The Class A, B and C title games will now be played on Nov. 3. The site has yet to be finalized, but Husson University, the original site, is unavailable next week.

“Certainly, postponing on a forecast is sometimes tough to do,” said Mike Burnham, an assistant executive director of the Maine Principals’ Association. “But we want these kids to have a positive experience and don’t want weather to impact the outcome of the game or put the kids in an unsafe situation.”

Spruce Mountain and Winthrop will meet in the Class C state championship game.

Burnham said the MPA’s cross country committee is still deciding whether to hold its state championships on Saturday in Belfast.
