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.

Mason-URI men's basketball preview

The University of Rhode Island has had a tough start to the season. Under new head coach Dan Hurley, the Rams have managed to survive (barely) a stretch of games against major conference competition, including No. 3 Ohio State. However, they were able to get into the win column Sunday with a double overtime thriller against Auburn (can anything go right for the Tigers right now?).

With a win under their belt, the Rams no longer have the winless monkey on their proverbial backs. However, they would like to continue their winning streak against a quality opponent in Mason.
