Unsuitable Field Conditions Send Game to Wingate University
Wilmington, NC – The July 21, 2012 match between the Wilmington Hammerheads and the Charlotte Eagles at Charlotte Christian Stadium that was postponed for a later date due to unsuitable field conditions has officially been rescheduled.
After weeks of deliberation, the game has been scheduled to take place on Friday, August 17 at Wingate University with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. at the Wingate University Soccer Complex.
The original match-up between the two teams in July was called off just prior to kickoff after an examination of the field proved unplayable. Days before, a large rainstorm hit the Charlotte area causing damage throughout the community and at the stadium.
This will be the final away game for the Wilmington Hammerheads during the 2012 regular season. The Hammerheads’ last home game at Legion Stadium is scheduled for the following day, Saturday, August 18, versus the Charlotte Eagles in a back-to-back doubleheader. A final match win at Legion will result in the Hammerheads being undefeated for the entire 2012 season on their home turf.
With only two games left, the Hammerheads are currently tied for third in the USL PRO rankings with the Charleston Battery amid Richmond, Harrisburg, and Charlotte trailing behind just within reach hoping to make a spot in the playoffs.
The Wilmington Hammerheads will host their final home game at Legion Stadium on Saturday, August 18 versus the Charlotte Eagles. The final match is “Fan Appreciation” night and all tickets are $6, adult and youth. Also, the beer garden, otherwise known as Landshark Landing, will be serving a collection of craft beers.
