Games about to kick off

BINGHAMTON — Hudson Valley's scholastic men's soccer team is about to open the Empire State Games with its first game, a matchup against Adirondack here at the Binghamton University soccer stadium.Of the 16 players on the Hudson Valley roster, 11 are from local schools, representing Red Hook, Arlington, Lourdes, Roosevelt, Spackenkill, John Jay, Beacon and Poughkeepsie.

Even Hudson Valley's coaches, Paul Maley and Chuck Wilder, are from Poughkeepsie.

The Bearcats' field here is an artificial turf, so we can likely expect a quicker pace than on grass.
