HELENA — Unhealthy air quality has led the cancellation of the East Helena girls soccer match with Laurel that was scheduled for Monday at 4 p.m.
The Vigilantes were going to play their first home game at the new multi-purpose stadium against Laurel Monday night in East Helena, but with air quality getting worse, athletic director Shaun Murgel confirmed that the match wouldn't be played.
"Yes, unfortunately," Murgel responded via text message to the Independent Record to confirm the match was canceled.
The East Helena football team opened the stadium last Tuesday against Frenchtown with a loss. The next home game for girls soccer team is set for Sept. 18 against Columbia Falls at 5 p.m.
