Merrimack’s home game Thanksgiving weekend against Bemidji State won’t be happening, after the school announced that it was cutting some road trips due to COVID-19. Instead of traveling to Merrimack and UMass Lowell that weekend, the Beavers will play Minnesota at home.
Miami is also scheduled to come to Lawler Arena and the Tsongas Center that weekend … there’s no word on whether or not the Redhawks have pulled out of the trip.
“With the cost of flying out there, let’s postpone it a couple years,” Bemidji State men’s head coach Tom Serratore told the Bemidji Pioneer. “Almost everybody is canceling their nonconference flights.”
This is the first game the Warriors have lost due to COVID-19, but given that it’s still July, it’s possible the program can replace the Beavers with another non-conference opponent.
