MIAA Tournament weather postponements
By Brendan Hall
The MIAA announced this afternoon that all boys and girls basketball contests in the North and Central districts scheduled for tonight have been postponed due to inclement weather.
Snow is expected to fall steadily in those parts of the state throughout the evening.
Three hockey games scheduled for tonight have also been put off due to the weather. In the North, two Division 1 boys hockey contests slated to play at Woburn's O'Brien Ice Rink, Woburn versus St. Peter-Marian and Austin Prep versus Winchester, have been postponed. In Division 1 girls, Shrewsbury's battle with Barnstable at Hyannis Youth Center has been postponed.
Home games for both Boston City League teams have been moved to tomorrow night. Charlestown head coach Edson Cardoso confirmed the Townies will host Andover at 7 p.m.; East Boston head coach Malcolm Smith also confirmed a 7 p.m. start time tomorrow night for the Jets' battle with visiting Waltham. Both games are in Division 1 North First Round matchups.
