Coming bad weatherpostpones NHIAA tourney contests

On its web page, the NHIAA’s “Special Alert” feature is getting many hits this week. That happens when inclement weather forces the state association to shuffle its schedule for tournaments.

And that’s the case today as a winter storm invades the Granite State, forcing the NHIAA to postpone tournaments statewide.

In boys’ basketball, the Division II semifinals will now be played Thursday at the University of New Hampshire. Portsmouth will meet Lebanon at 6 p.m. and Pembroke will play Pelham at 8 p.m.

The Division III semifinals have been moved to Friday at Southern New Hampshire University. Conant of Jaffrey and Berlin will play at 6 p.m. followed by Hopkinton and Campbell of Litchfield 8 p.m. The two winners will play for the state title on Sunday at 2 p.m. at SNHU.

In girls’ basketball, the Division I semifinals will be held Thursday at SNHU. Bedford and Nashua North collide at 6 p.m. and Londonderry and Pinkerton of Derry will clash at 8 p.m. The two winners will play Sunday at 6 p.m. for the state title at SNHU. The Division II finals between Coe-Brown of Northwood and Merrimack Valley of Penacook will be held Sunday at noon at SNHU.

The Unified Basketball finals will be held Sunday at 4 p.m. at SNHU.

In ice hockey, the Division I semifinals will now be played Thursday at JFK Coliseum in Manchester. Pinkerton and Londonderry will clash at 5:30 p.m., and the 7:30 p.m. contest will feature Manchester Central and St. Thomas Aquinas of Dover.
