Impact officials confident snow in Montreal won’t push weekend’s game to Sunday

It should be no surprise, perhaps, that mid-March conditions in Montreal have been wintry this week, but Impact officials are still confident that Saturday’s 1 p.m. game at Olympic Stadium, the team’s home opener against the Sounders, will continue as planned.

Still, vice president Richard Legendre told Montreal reporters here and here Wednesday that any snow accumulation beyond three centimeters (1.18 inches) on the stadium roof could force a postponement, perhaps to Sunday, weather permitting.

A final decision will be made by 1 p.m. Friday.
