The girls soccer game at Moorhead Tuesday was postponed when the overnight deluge flooded the Spuds soccer field, leaving it under water and unplayable.
The contest will be replayed later this season.
The girls host East Grand Forks tomorrow at 5 against the unbeaten Lakes to Prairie Conference leader.
