After it was discovered a water pipe had broken under the Temple City High Field Friday night, officials from Temple City and SPHS announced the game between the two schools would be played at 6 p.m. on Monday at South Pasadena High.
The outcome is critical to the Tigers, who still have CIF playoff ambitions despite not winning a Rio Hondo League game this season.
South Pasadena enters the contest with a 5-3 overall record, including an 0-2 mark in league play. If the Tigers can win their final two games they stand a good chance to earn an at-large berth in the postseason, according to Tigers’ coach Jeff Chi, with a 7-3 record.
Monrovia and San Marino are projected to finish first and second, respectively, in the Rio Hondo League race and automatically reach the playoffs.
Following Monday’s game, South Pasadena hosts La Canada next Friday at 7 p.m. to wrap up the regular season. It will be the Tigers annual homecoming game.
