Field hockey's semifinals and championship game are shifting two days each due to inclement weather this week.

The semifinals will move from Tuesday to Thursday, with games remaining at All-City Stadium. The championship is shifting from Thursday to Saturday, and the site is also changing to Stutler Bowl.

The state tournament bracket has been updated to reflect the changes.

A snowstorm rolled into the Denver metro area on Sunday, and snow is expected to continue throughout the day on Monday, and pick up heavily on Tuesday. In addition, Tuesday's forecast calls for a high of 20 degrees — and 16 degrees when the second game was scheduled to start. That weather necessitated a change in the tournament schedule.

No snow is in the forecast after Wednesday, and temperatures also pick up.

No. 1 Colorado Academy and No. 4 Kent Denver will play at 5:30 p.m. in the first semifinal on Thursday at All-City, with No. 2 Regis Jesuit and No. 3 Cherry Creek following that at 7:15 p.m.

The championship game is scheduled for Nov. 2 at 3 p.m. at Stutler Bowl.
