Mason men's soccer game against URI called off in the 55th minute

The Mason men’s soccer game against Rhode Island was suspended Friday night after 55 minutes due to heavy rain.

The Patriots led 2-0 after goals from Wes Sever in the 4th minute and Julio Arjona in the 31st minute.

During halftime and in the beginning of the second half, the rain started to fall harder, gradually turning the field into a swamp. The referees decided to call the game as players had difficulty having any success moving the ball.
