Quarterback Tommy Grady had his best game of the season for the Empire completing 20-of-29 passes for 221 yards and 5 touchdowns. Joe Hills was on the receiving end of the three of those touchdowns, while Collin Taylor and Malachi Jones had one each. Malachi Jones also added a rushing touchdown. 

The Albany defensive front constantly pressured Valor quarterback Warren Smith and didn't allow him to get into a rhythm, while the Albany secondary made big play after big play in the win.

The two teams will meet again next week in Washington.
