UNC-NC State finale rained out, no make-up planned
Posted April 28, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Sunday's rubber game between the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State was cancelled due to rain and will not be rescheduled.
After splitting the first two games of the series, No. 1 UNC and No. 6 NC State were scheduled to play the series-deciding game three at Doak Field at Dail Park under the lights in a televised contest. As the clock turned to 7 p.m., the tarp remained on the field under darkening skies and the decision was made to call the game.
Because of finals this week at NC State, a Monday make-up is not possible. Fans with tickets to Sunday's game can exchange them for any game remaining on the NC State home schedule, with the exception of May 11 versus Florida State which is already sold out.
UNC's (41-4, 19-3 ACC) next game will be Wednesday in Chapel Hill against The Citadel. The Wolfpack (34-11, 15-8 ACC) will not return to the field until Friday when they open a three-game set against Presbyterian.
Sunday night's system could see anywhere from 1 to 2 inches, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
