UMaine unsatisfied with probe of game cut short by fireworks

ORONO, Maine (AP) - The University of Maine is unhappy with Kent State's investigation of a decision to cut short a tied women's field hockey game to make way for fireworks for a football game.

Kent State said Friday that an investigation by its Office of Compliance, Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action concluded there was no Title IX violation or gender-related bias.

The Bangor Daily News reports UMaine is disappointed that Kent State, which hosted the game, didn't interview student-athletes who were "disrespected."

The UMaine-Temple match was stopped before the second overtime to clear the field for pregame fireworks scheduled 90 minutes later for a football game at an adjacent stadium.

Kent State apologized and said the game should've continued. It offered to reimburse UMaine and Temple if they choose to replay the game.
