For the second time in two weeks, Memphis 901 FC was all dressed up with no game to play Saturday.

Lightning was detected in the vicinity of Toyota Stadium in suburban Fenton, Mo., before a fast-developing storm led to the postponement of the game between the city's first-year United Soccer League club and Saint Louis FC. A make-up date will be announced at a later time.

Memphis' home game at Pittsburgh on May 18 also was postponed due to bad weather. That one will be played on Sept. 24.

Prior to Saturday's game, the club announced that defender Triston Hodge would miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury.

The Trinidad and Tobago international appeared in 10 games, starting eight, and led Memphis in duels won (88) and aerial duels won (35). Hodge's only goal of the year came in the 2-2 draw with Swope Park Rangers on May 22.
