Berkshire Game Canceled Due to Officials Not Showing Up

by Team Reporter & Writer-Nate Gordon

As I tweeted from the team’s Twitter account when it happened, the Williston game against Berkshire, scheduled for 6:30 at Nobles, was canceled because no officials showed up.

BREAKING NEWS: Tonight’s game against Berkshire has been postponed due to no officials showing up.

Williston players were ready to go when Head Coach Derek Cunha gave them the news at about 6:40p.m.. He told them that he has never experienced this as a coach. While the Williston players were disappointed, this could be a blessing in disguise. Multiple players on the team are feeling the wear and tear from playing five games in ten days.

This would have been Williston’s second game of the day. In the first, which began at 10 a.m, the Wildcats defeated Nobles 3-2.

After I sent out the news on twitter, many of the team’s followers reacted to the news. Here are just a few of my favorites:

@WillistonHockey Berkshire paid off the refs. Scared to play
Rick Guardia (@eguardia)
@WillistonHockey Crazy. Some of the Parents had come from Washington State to watch their kids play.
Joseph Aube (@aubejo89)
@WillistonHockey never seen that happen before. Lets consider that a lucky break for Berkshire and work hard for the next game.
Cunha said that the game against Berkshire will hopefully be rescheduled for later in the season. In the next few days, I will try to get more information on why no refs appeared.
The team now has a week off before it begins practicing again on January 6th. Williston’s next opponent will be Worcester Academy on January 8th.
