MANILA, Philippines — Sports action screeched to a halt amid threat of heavy rains and winds from Super Typhoon Karding.

Anticipating stormy conditions, the PBA, the NCAA and the Shakey’s Super League yesterday morning all postponed their scheduled offerings for the day with the pro league extending the suspension of play to the PBA 3x3’s Leg 3 hostilities slated for Sept. 26 to 27.

No new dates were set for the affected PBA and NCAA games yet.

The SSL, for its part, said it will adjust its slate for next weekend at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum to accommodate the shelved matches.

“All tickets of Sept. 25 games will be honored on the new schedule. Further advisory will be made,” ACES president and COO Dr. Ian Laurel announced.

The SSL, which just opened shop last Saturday, suspended its Day 2 matchups featuring Letran against St. Benilde, Emilio Aguinaldo College versus Adamson, Santo Tomas opposite Lyceum and University of the Philippines against Mapua.

In the PBA, the Commissioner’s Cup debuts of Meralco and Barangay Ginebra will have to wait following the postponement of their supposed showdown at the MOA Arena with joint No. 1-seeking NLEX and Converge, respectively.

And with the storm expected to still affect the country today, the PBA decided to put off its two-day third-leg booked at the Robinsons Place Antipolo, too.

In the NCAA, the Season 98 elims games that would have pitted Jose Rizal U (2-2) with St. Benilde (3-1) and San Beda (2-2) against Perpetual Help at the Filoil EcOil Centre were called off.

NCAA management committee deputy chair Paul Supan said the twin bill will be rescheduled to a later date.
