Tonight’s game

EMPIRE FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Watertown Red and Black at Glens Falls Green Jackets

When, where: 7 tonight, East Field, Glens Falls

Outlook: The regular season opener for both teams features two of the oldest semipro football teams in the nation. Watertown is the oldest, founded in 1896, and Glens Falls (1928) is the third oldest. … The Greenjackets went 2-0 in the preseason against a pair of teams from Vermont, while the Red and Black lost its only exhibition to powerhouse Western Connecticut. … Both teams are likely to lean on their respective run games tonight. The Glens Falls rushing duo of Tony DeLoatch and Kevin Cardonna ran for 299 of the team’s 485 total yards of offense in their last preseason game. For Watertown, Curtis Dukes and Calvin Rhodes ran for 170 of its 267 offensive yards, and the team is expected to add veteran Joe Brennan to that mix tonight. Brennan missed the preseason game with a pulled hamstring. ... Watertown routed Glens Falls, 64-8, in their last matchup in Sept. 2012. … Ryan Semor will get the start at quarterback for Watertown because Anthony Noel, the projected starter, has a personal commitment. ... Plattsburgh and Glove Cities, the only other teams in the EFL, will also open the regular season tonight with a 7 p.m. game in Johnstown.
