Storm affects 49ers women's soccer team's travels

The Atlantic 10 women's soccer tournament at Rhode Island is going on as scheduled later this week despite Hurricane Sandy, but the 49ers had to readjust their travel plans to get there.

Coach John Cullen's team originally was scheduled to fly to Kingston, R.I., on Wednesday for its Thursday first-round game against La Salle. Not wanting to risk having the flight being canceled, the 49ers took a bus instead on Tuesday. They made it as far as Harrisburg, Pa., Tuesday night and they spent the night there. They're completing the journey to Kingston on Wednesday, in time for their 11 a.m. game Thursday against the Explorers.
