GREAT FALLS — The Missoula Osprey postponed a second game due to poor field conditions after a mixture of weather and concert-goers damaged the playing field.

The Missoula Osprey were supposed to take on the Great Falls Voyagers on Saturday night, but Ogren Field is not in playable condition nearly a week after a Mumford and Sons concert at the stadium.

According to a press release from Osprey management, one big area in right center field is still too soft and creates a risk of player injury.

The two clubs have agreed to move the final two games of the four-game series to Centene Stadium in Great Falls.

A doubleheader will be played Monday in Great Falls at 5 p.m. Gates will open at 4:30. Admission to the doubleheader is free. Both games will be seven-inning contests.

The two teams have scheduled another doubleheader in Great Falls for this coming Friday to make up for one of the lost games in Missoula.

After Monday, the Voyagers will play two road games at Billings Tuesday and Wednesday.
