Mother Nature, yet again, forced another evening of postponements involving Area I East Division American Senior Legion members Wayne County Post 11 and Snow Hill Post 94 on Tuesday.

Four division contests and one non-conference affair were rained out -- Wayne County at Kinston, Beaufort at Snow Hill, Pitt County 160 at Wilson, Edenton at Ahoskie and Smithfield at Nash County.

As of press time, only one contest had been rescheduled.

Veteran Post 94 coach James "Rabbit" Fulghum phoned the Area I commissioner to receive permission to play July 5 -- one day after the regular season ends. Fulghum said in a voicemail that Snow Hill, currently riding a five-game losing streak, will "most likely play" Beaufort next Tuesday.

Snow Hill (6-9) entertains Nash County at 7 p.m. today and needs to win to stay among the top eight teams. The Area I East playoffs begin July 6.

Wayne County (15-4) has games to make up against New Bern and Kinston with no open dates remaining on its schedule. Post 11 is in the middle of a 10-game stretch in as many days.

"I don't know what we're going to do," said third-year Post 11 coach Brad Reaves.

Weather permitting, Post 11 continues play today at league-leading Pitt County 39. Game time is 7 p.m. at Guy Smith Park in Greenville.

The Edenton-Ahoskie game has been moved to Friday.

Wilson Post 13 coach Rusty Dail said Tuesday evening that he is running out of home playing dates and is attempting to play a doubleheader with Edenton and Pitt County 160 later this week. Post 13 shares Fleming Stadium with the Wilson Tobs, a Coastal Plain League organization.
