Unplayable field conditions postpone Pitt’s spring opener vs Akron

Pitt men’s soccer team were all set to renew the second half of its season on Sunday afternoon’s against Akron, but the match has now been postponed due to unplayable field conditions.

The match was originally rescheduled for Sunday at 3 p.m., after being pushed back a day due to inclement weather including snow and ice.

The game has no makeup date at this time.

The Panthers’ postponement is the second called off game this spring. Last weekend’s home exhibition against Georgetown was canceled due to COVID concerns within the Hoya program.

Pitt’s next scheduled match is Saturday, Feb. 27 at home against city rival Duquesne.

Start time is set for 7 p.m. on ACCNX. Fans are not allowed inside Ambrose Urbanic Field at this time. Further updates will be provided on the Pitt athletic site and social media platforms.

Earlier this week, we featured a pair of Pitt seniors Matt Bailey and Bryce Washington as they look forward to the spring season and potentially making a run deep into the NCAA tournament.
