The Canisius women's soccer team opens the MAAC portion of its 2018 slate Sept. 15, on the road when the Golden Griffins travel to play at Saint Peter's in Jersey City, N.J. Canisius is coming off a 1-0 win over Cleveland State Sept. 9, which helped the Blue and Gold close out non-league play with a winning record (3-2-1) for the second-straight season.
