Hoping for some sunshine

A little recap of what's going down in the Home Talent League is deserved. It's been an unpredictable spring in terms of weather so far, and teams have had a hard time getting things going on the wet fields.

Last Saturday's game on April 12 between Jefferson and Dodgeville had to be cancelled due to rainy/snowy weather. Fortunately it looks like both teams will be able to get play underway this weekend, though.

After last Saturday's unseasonable snow, Fort Atkinson traveled up to Rio to get in an exhibition game the following day. While the rain and snow ceased, the game was played in cold conditions. Fort came out on top, 8-4, for an early season victory.

This weekend looks a little bit better in terms of Mother Nature playing a part in the teams' fate. Fort Atkinson is holding an exhibition tournament on both Saturday and Sunday. Things get underway with Fort hosting Monona at 1:00 on the first day with Jefferson playing Middleton to follow.

The losers from Saturday play at 1:00 on Sunday with the championship game afterwards around 3:15.

Dodgeville is able to make up for last weekend's cancelled game with a pair over the next two days. The Knights host Cazenovia on Saturday and travel to Cottage Grove on Sunday.

The forecast looks like rain early Saturday although diminishing later in the day. Games should be able to get in. And an even better weather forecast is in the works for Sunday with highs nearing 70 degrees.
