Outlawz postpone opener
Bethlehem, PA... It is with mixed emotions that we must inform you that the Outlawz home opener scheduled for March 8 vs. the New England Surge has been postponed until June 14.
The good news is that the reason for cancellation is the Lehigh University Basketball program. Both the men and women's teams enter this weeks Patriot League playoff tournament with expectations to make noise. the revised game and practice schedule just does not allow enough time to convert to football and back. Coupled with the fact that the turf has been "rolled up:" for six months and will need a few days to flatten and settle, once installed. The reduced turnaround time simply does not allow sufficient setup time. The likelihood of either of the teams advancing to the next round are great enough that the basketball court will be needed through the weekend. The Outlawz would like to wish the Lehigh Basketball teams the best of luck. Bring us home a championship.
The sadness is that each and every member of the CIFL, NE Surge and Outlawz were looking forward to a kickoff this weekend. It just was not to be. There will be a game on March 22 with a very much improved and revamped Outlawz team.
