Albany Metro Mallers Host Scranton Eagles
Saturday Night at 7:30, football makes its return to the gridiron for 2005, as the Albany Metro Mallers take the field at Albany's historic Bleecker Stadium as the 2005 Empire Football League season kicks off as the Mallers host The Scranton Eagles.
Sal Ivarone, Scott Lawson, and Jeff Turman will lead Albany in their second season opener since they returned to the football scene in 2004 after a multi-year hiatus.
