GLENS FALLS -- The Glens Falls Greenjackets are scheduled to complete their Empire Football League season on Saturday night against the Monroe County Sting.
The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at East Field.
The Jackets are 2-7 and coming off a 30-13 loss to the Syracuse Shock last week, the team’s fifth straight loss, but one of their best-played games of the season. It will be the final game for quarterback Jack Gibbs, who said last week he planned to retire permanently from football.
The Sting (5-4), based in Rochester, are coming off a 6-0 win over Amsterdam a week ago.
It is also Hall of Fame night for the Greenjackets, who are inducting five new members. Joining the Jackets’ Hall of Fame are Bob Gover, Kevin Siska, Dan Chandler, Ken Hackett and the late Dave Simon. Siska, Chandler and Hackett — who played quarterback, wide receiver and defensive end, respectively — were instrumental in the Jackets’ success several years ago. Gover was a former Jackets’ defensive back, while Simon was a big fullback who could also kick long field goals.
The game will also benefit the Charles R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital, and will feature the final local Pass, Punt & Kick contest.
