The 2006 BIG EAST Softball Championship waited 28 hours to play its first contest and will have to wait even longer to continue its schedule. The No. 5 seed, DePaul, dispatched the No. 4 seed, Syracuse 8-0 in five innings in game one, but play was halted in the bottom of the first in game two between No. 8 St. John’s and No. 1 Louisville.

Action will continue tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow at Ivy Field, as the Red Storm and Cardinals continue their game. No. 2 USF will meet No. 7 Pittsburgh at 3:00 p.m., followed by No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 6 Providence at 5:00 p.m.

The St. John’s – Louisville matchup will be continued in the bottom of the first inning. St. John’s was leading the game 1-0, but the Cardinals will return with runners on first and second with no outs.
