Power issues postpone last night’s Bishop’s/Laval game in Lennoxville

Last night’s Laval at Bishop’s game was cancelled due a scheduled power interruption by Hydro Quebec.

A make-up date has not been announced.

We are also being told that the entire Bishop’s campus last power just after 7:30 am yesterday.  The cause was a high voltage power wire crimp connector that broke on a line that then fell to the ground, and instead of tripping a breaker, continued arcing on the ground and eventually caught fire.

Hydro temporarily re-routed power to everyone affected, and our power was restored around 10:30 am.  Subsequently, Hydro Quebec proceeded to change the wire and crimp connector, but in and around game time, power had to be briefly interrupted in order to restore everyone back onto the main line, undoing the re-routing they did this morning.
