Highlights & Scores: New (Old) League For R&BPosted: Updated:
The Watertown Red & Black is getting ready for another semi-pro football season -- in a different league.
After spending the last two years in the Northeast Football Alliance, the Red & Black is heading back to the Empire Football League, where the team has spent most of the last three decades.
Coach George Ashcraft says the R&B has been in the EFL for 26 of his 30 years of coaching.
"It's a better fit for us," he said. "I think it'll all be better for our organization to stay in the EFL and just play football and not worry about all the drama that seems to go on in the other league."
Ashcraft says he's looking forward to renewing old rivalries with such teams as Plattsburgh and Glens Falls.
