The Redhawks will host the Mustangs in the first game of the weekend series Friday, March 7, at Meridian Park, located at 16765 Wallingford Ave N in Shoreline, starting at 6:45 p.m. Discussions are still taking place as to the start time and the site of the other two scheduled games of the weekend, with the likelihood of a doubleheader Saturday, March 8, due to the current forecast for more rain Sunday, March 9.
