Snowstorm puts Saturday's Reading Royals game on ice

Game at Santander Arena postponed until Monday; Friday, Sunday games still on

READING, Pa. - The season's first snowstorm has forced the Reading Royals to postpone one of their three home games this weekend.

The Royals' match-up with the Brampton Beast at the Santander Arena on Saturday has been rescheduled for Monday at 7 p.m.

"This is a very rare occurrence and never an easy decision to make," said Drew Bell, the team's president. "In the sake of everyone's safety and the reports that keep getting worse of a direct hit from this storm, we feel this is in the best interest of the teams and the fans."

The Royals said they will honor tickets for Saturday's game on Monday or at another game this season.

Gordon Kaye's wall of honor induction ceremony that was also set for Saturday night will be held later in the season.

"I will be working with Gordon Kaye to identify a date that works with him and the organization to welcome him to the Wall of Honor," Bell said. "Please, everyone be safe and enjoy the weather with your friends, neighbors and family."

The Royals' game against the Beast at 7 p.m. on Friday is still on, however, the team suggests that all fans use the "utmost discretion" in deciding whether to attend.

The game can be heard live on CBS SportsRadio 1240 AM and 98.5 FM in Reading.

Sunday's 4 p.m. game against the Elmira Jackals is still on, however, that may change depending on Elmira's ability to travel from its games in Norfolk, Virginia, officials said.
