Niagara Gazette — A women’s lacrosse game between Niagara University and St. Bonaventure that was scheduled to be played today in Olean has been moved to Niagara Field.

The game begins this afternoon at 4 p.m.

It’s the latest weather-related adjustment to the Purple Eagles’ lacrosse schedule. Last week’s scheduled home game against University of Detroit Mercy was postponed due to the snowstorm.
