The Hamilton Thunder vs. Border Stars game scheduled Thursday for Brian Timmis Stadium in Hamilton, an 8 p.m. kickoff, has been postponed due to poor ground conditions.
The Brian Timmis ground has taken a great deal of rain during the past week and despite the work of a ground crew to bring the surface back to normal by removing the considerable excess water, a decision was made just after 2.30 p.m. Thursday that the ground is not playable.
This was to be the first game for Border Stars in the Canadian Professional Soccer League, who will play their home opener against Toronto Croatia at Windsor Stadium this coming Saturday, a 7.05 p.m. kickoff.
Hamilton Thunder have played one game in this new season, a 1-1 tie with Metro Lions on May 27.
The next game at Brian Timmis Stadium is scheduled for this coming Saturday when Thunder host Toronto Supra, an 8 p.m. start.
An announcement will be made by the CPSL on Friday regarding the status of that game.
