— “It’s a little bit different (being the quarterback), but it’s all right,” said Tarver.

DJ Jones scored Albany’s first touchdown on a 1-yard run late in the first quarter. Cooperwood then forced his way into the end zone on a 1-yard run in the second quarter to make the score 14-0. Tarver sealed the victory late in the fourth quarter with Albany’s third 1-yard scoring run of the game.

Meanwhile, Glens Falls struggled to get anything going against Albany’s defense. The Greenjackets’ longest possession came in the third quarter when they held the ball for more than four minutes, but that was only because Albany was called for defensive holding on a Glens Falls punt attempt. The Greenjackets got the ball back on the automatic first down and earned another first down before the drive stalled.

Young and Andrew Grant each had intercep-tions to lead the Mallers defense.

Fans will have to wait a while to see Albany play at CBA again. The Mallers hit the road this week to face the Amsterdam Zephyrs. That’s followed by a bye week before they host Lackawanna in a non-league game July 28.
