Huskies soccer snowed out

“Phelan came on the loudspeaker and said, “We just got a call from the principal of Broomfield,'” Huskies coach David Cope said. “”I couldn’t make out what he was saying. He was crying, saying something about snow. He sounded afraid of being hurt by the Huskies.'”

Well, it’s doubtful that the No. 1 Eagles are shaking in their boots. But the reality is that three inches of snow on Broomfield’s field postponed Thursday’s game.

According to Cope, the school first got the call at 9 a.m., that the game was still on, if it warmed up. But, at noon, it was still 26 degrees in Broomfield so the game was moved to Saturday at 5:30 p.m.

“Phelan was saying, “I don’t think you know we’re from. We’ll play you guys underneath an avalanche,” Cope said with a laugh.

The postponement leaves Huskies soccer with two extra days to prepare for the Eagles.
