Sports washed out by rain, flooding

Golf, tennis look to get back to playing this week

Patriots and Warriors alike had trouble getting outside to play golf and tennis this week as Wyoming Valley Conference action came to a grinding halt due to storms early in the week and flooding late in the week.

All four Pittston Area and Wyoming Area teams did not compete in a single event this week after getting well underway the previous two weeks.

The Old Forge golf team also had its two scheduled matches last week washed out because of rain. The Blue Devils will try to get three golf matches in this week, including one on Monday against Valley View.

Monday could present Old Forge coaches with an unusual dilemma as four of Coach Joe DeStefano’s top golfers also play soccer. The soccer team is slated to play Riverside at 6 p.m.

The football team could also be affected by a Monday game as all-league kicker Matt Mancuso is one of the top soccer players for the Blue Devils. The Old Forge gridders could have a date with GAR on Monday night.

The Patriots and Warriors will face each other twice this week – once on the golf course at Fox Hill Country Club, and the other on the tennis courts at the Martin L. Mattei Middle School.
