DERRY, NH -- The University of Massachusetts Boston women's ice hockey team's game at Castleton State College, which was scheduled for today at 2:00 p.m. in Castleton, VT, has been postponed. There has been no make-up date planned at this point.

The team was traveling North on snowy NH-interstate 93, when all traffic stopped due to an accident in Derry, NH. The accident resulted in a 59-car pile-up, which included the bus that the team was being transported in. There were no injuries sustained to any of the players or traveling personnel with UMass Boston.

"We'd like to thank the New Hampshire state police officers and Derry firefighters for all of their help today," said Head Coach Maura Crowell. "They were all extremely helpful and did an outstanding job in making sure that our safety was paramount and that we were taken care of."

The Beacons will be in action again on Friday, January 16 when they host College of the Holy Cross at 7:00 p.m. at the Clark Athletic Center.
