Another rain-out for Bermuda’s U-19s
The weather in Canada is threatening to ruin Bermuda’s hopes of qualifying for next year’s Under-19 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
For the second straight day Bermuda’s has seen the weather disrupt their Americas qualifying match in Toronto — this time against the hosts, when a severe overnight storm dumped 125mm of rain in the Toronto area in just one hour.
The ground was left under water yesterday and no play was possible, leaving Bermuda with a second straight no-result, following Monday’s match against the United States which was stopped early in the Bermuda innings as they replied to the US’s total of 194. The two no-results have hurt Bermuda more than the Canada and the United States who have played one game less and will meet each other today in a match that will give the winners a distinct advantage going into the second round of matches starting tomorrow.
However, some rain is in the forecast for today, with isolated thunderstorms expected this morning, with cloudy skies later and a 30 percent chance of rain. There is a 60 percent chance of rain overnight and into Thursday when Bermuda play their next match against the US.
