Minster coach Mike Wiss, front left, and assistant coaches try to clean up water that pooled in the warning track along the left-field line at Carleton Davidson Stadium in Springfield on Friday. Minster’s regional semifinal against Mechanicsburg and Russia’s regional semifinal against Cincinnati Christian scheduled for Friday were initially pushed back to 4 and 7 p.m., then moved to 6 and 9 after afternoon rain in Springfield. After attempts to dry several flooded areas (including in left field) and an hours-long conversation between stadium and school officials, both games were postponed to Saturday. The games have also been moved to Coldwater’s Veterans Field. Minster’s game is scheduled to start a noon on Saturday with Russia’s to follow at 3 p.m.
