Flooding leads to Canisius football schedule change

Canisius' home opener will have to wait one more week. The Crusaders' 1 p.m. Saturday game against defending Section IV (Binghamton area) Class A champion Maine-Endwell has been canceled; M-E was unable to travel from its flood-ravaged home area for the game.

Canisius will now play on the road against another Section IV school, Elmira, at 2 p.m. Saturday. The Elmira Express is a combined team from Elmira Free Academy and Elmira Southside which plays in Class AA; its scheduled game against another Binghamton-area team, Vestal, was also canceled due to the flooding. 

What is Canisius' home opener now? It's Week Three, Saturday, Sept. 17 at 1 p.m. against none other than ... St. Joe's.
