Augusta Riverhawks may move to Macon

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The Augusta Riverhawks may soon be the Macon Riverhawks.

The Macon-Bibb County commission has approved a rental agreement for Augusta's minor league hockey team to play in the Macon coliseum if the team moves to their city.

The Riverhawks have not announced a move from Augusta but the team has been unable to play several games in the James Brown Arena because of a mechanical error that caused the ice to melt.
