The University of Maine women’s soccer team’s game Saturday against Fairleigh Dickinson University at Falmouth has been canceled because of the threat of Hurricane Irene.

Maine opened its season today against Charleston Southern in Orono, and Saturday’s game has not been rescheduled.

Fairleigh Dickinson’s campus in Teaneck, N.J., has been shut down in advance of Hurricane Irene. Classes were to begin Monday, but now will start on Wednesday.
