Air Force Games Postponed Over Government Shutdown
CHN Staff Report
Once again, politics has intruded upon athletics.
The United States federal government shutdown, which went into effect at midnight last night after Congress failed to enact a new funding planned, has forced Air Force hockey to stop playing.
Air Force was scheduled to host Sacred Heart tonight. The teams played last night, with Sacred Heart winning, 2-1. That game will be postponed until further notice. Air Force is also supposed to travel to Niagara for two games next weekend.
Army athletics is not affected by the shutdown.
