PAOLA — Let’s try this again.

Marmaton Valley High’s softball team, slated to play its Class 2-1A Regional Tournament semifinal Wednesday against Central Heights, instead had their game postponed due to rainy weather.

The contest was pushed back to today at 4:30 p.m. in Paola, with the winner facing either Jayhawk-Linn or Lyndon immediately afterward for the regional championship and a berth in next week’s state tournament. The Jayhawk-Linn and Lyndon game also will begin at 4:30 on a separate field in Paola.

Wednesday marked the second time in three days weather has disrupted the Wildcats’ schedule. They were originally slated to play Monday in Mound City, but weather forced tournament officials to move both the game time and location. The Wildcats got their first round action in on Tuesday, a 9-4 victory over Marais des Cygnes Valley.

The state tournament begins May 27 in Pratt.
