CHICAGO - The Saint Xavier University football opener
against University of St. Francis (Ill.) Thursday night at Bruce R. Deaton
Memorial Field in Chicago was suspended with 5:55 remaining in the first

led 14-7 and the Fighting Saints were driving when the officials stopped the
game due to a lightning strike.
Following a nearly 80-minute stoppage, the officials, coaches and game
administrators decided to cancel any further play for Thursday night and resume
the game on Saturday, September 4, starting at 6 p.m. Admission will be free for the Saturday game.
