Rainy weather leads to rescheduled high school games

Games in the area that were scheduled to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday have been moved to later dates because of rainy weather that left the fields unusable.

The coaches decided that because some fields were too muddy to use after the rain that hit the area on Monday, they would move the games to dates later in the month.

On Tuesday, the Tooele Buffaloes were scheduled to visit the Stansbury Stallions in both baseball and softball. The coaches waited until early afternoon to decide whether they would play or not, but the fields just weren’t dry enough for either game to take place. The baseball game has been rescheduled to take place on April 12 at 3:30 p.m. The softball game has been rescheduled for April 16 at 3:30 p.m.

The Tooele boys’ soccer team was supposed to play against the Morgan Trojans on Wednesday, but that game has been moved to Wednesday, April 10 at 3:30 p.m.

Tooele has a boys’ soccer game scheduled for Friday at home against Ben Lomond. The game is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m.

The Stansbury baseball team has a home game scheduled for today at 3:30 p.m. against Morgan, and the Tooele baseball team will next play on Tuesday at Ben Lomond. The Stansbury softball team next plays at Grantsville on Wednesday, and the Tooele softball team next hosts Morgan on Tuesday.

Stansbury baseball currently leads the Region 11 standings with a 3-0 record with those three wins coming against Ben Lomond, Bear River and Ogden. Grantsville is on the heels the Stallions at 4-1 in region with a victory at Tooele Wednesday. The Buffaloes sit in sixth place with a 1-3 record. The Buffaloes’ lone region win came against Ogden on March 26.

In softball, the Lady Buffs have played just one region game, but that was a win against the Ogden Tigers on March 27. The win was also their first win of the season, and they haven’t played a game since then. Stansbury is in first place in the region with a record of 3-0. Those three wins came against Ben Lomond, Bear River and Ogden. The Stallions have a 12-1 overall record on the year.

In soccer, Tooele also sits in sixth place with a 1-3 record. The Buffaloes defeated Grantsville on a last-second goal to get their win. Morgan is in the fourth spot ahead of Tooele, so Wednesday’s game between the two teams is crucial for playoff positioning.
