Update on South Point & Marvin Ridge.
Game 2 has been postponed until 12 noon at Marvin Ridge.
Game 3, if necessary, will be played at 7 pm on Saturday evening at South Point.
Evidently a storm moved into the area right around 4pm. MR does not have lights so an extended game delay beyond the 5 pm game time was not possible.
