DHS girls hoops team can’t get games in

Circumstances beyond their control have made it hard for Dunkirk High’s girls varsity basketball team to get a game in lately.

The Lady Marauders’ Wednesday night game at DHS against Olean was called off due to snowy conditions. The game will now be played on Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m.

On Monday, Southwestern was scheduled to visit Dunkirk, but that got postponed too — in that case, because of illnesses on the Lady Trojans. That contest will now be Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

The Olean postponement is the third home game in the last two weeks the Lady Marauders have had to reschedule. A game with Falconer originally scheduled for Jan. 29 was first moved to Jan. 31, then to Saturday, Feb. 3, because the Lady Falcons were too ill to field a team. Dunkirk won the game, 73-63, when it was finally played to raise its overall record to 6-10 and 3-6 in CCAA West 1 divisional play.
