Topeka, Kansas, ----- Recent flooding caused by severe rain storms over the weekend will postpone this Saturday’s game on May 12th between the four-time American Professional Football League Champions the Kansas Koyotes and the Missouri Minutemen at the Civic Center in St. Joseph, Missouri.
The League made the decision late yesterday after the Kansas Expocentre in was turned into a makeshift shelter for Topekans who were affected by the flooding. “Some of our players and players’ families were affected by the storm. Our practice field at the Expocentre is being put to better use right now helping the victims of the Topeka flooding. The Civic Center in St. Joseph, Missouri, which is the venue of this weekend’s game is also being used as an emergency housing facility,” says Ralph Adams, President of the APFL. “We feel it is in the best interest of the communities and the teams to move this game to June 9th.
